Is 10 years too long to mourn for a girlfriend?

Anonymous
My supervisor finally got into a relationship last August at the age of 26. When he was 16, he lost his HS girlfriend in a terrible manner. He saw her getting ran over by a van (by a drunk driver) and was too far from reach.

The image of the accident burned in his mind, he turned to alcohol and drugs for a while, isolated from friends and was dateless till last year. Even though it was sad, isn't 10 years too long to be mourning for a partner, esp if you were a teen at the time?
