    Re: Too Much Water Under The Bridge

    This is an informal phrase that means too much has happened in the past about the situation, too many experiences, or that there is a history that one can refer to. The water that has alrady flowed under a bridge is a metaphor for things that have happened.

    For example:
    Mary said that John apologized but she added that too much water has gone under the bridge and she won't go back with him.
