    easy come

    I wonder whether this idiom "easy come easy go" means merely sth involving spending much money that people don't care much about losing it if they haven't used their effort much when getting it.

    Things acquired easily may be lost just as easily.

    Does it sometimes refer to the no longer of the relationship between men & women as well? I'm curious in an ordinary way, please.

    Thank you for asking. Actually it's my purpose to acquire the information deep down through all the essential details for my monthly article about "The interesting idioms of today" offered to my readers. And before choosing ones I've to be sure about the meaning in reality to appear in the explanation part. So I've to ask all you natives again & again at all times. Nothing more than that
