There were various reasons for the separation after High School. There was an immediate split between those were continuing their education and those who entered the labor force. Those who went to work had money in their pocket while the students were more likely still dependent on their parents. Geography then comes into play. First, as neighborhoods were changing people moved away and friends were separated. Those who went on to more education were more likely to relocate somewhere else upon graduation. Marriage--those who were already working got married earlier then students. ( Based on what happened in my experience). A married couple had different interests then a single person. There was also an intellectual gap. Military service also had some effect on separation. Happily, the Computer Age came along and it was possible to look up old friends. I re-bonded with old friends as if we were never separated.
