But more than four in 10 admit they went for “second best” because the person they had parted their ways was not Prince—or Princess—Charming for them.

The survey of 2,000 adults for Opera North found that a lucky 33 percent settle down with their first love.
It also revealed that 41 per cent said they had fallen in love with someone they should not have and, interestingly, almost half of them admitted this had happened more than once.
