A thing of the past

< Previous | Next >
Hello everyone,

I already know that the phrase "a thing of the past" means "something that existed or was done in the past, but no longer exists, or happens.'' My question: Does "a thing of the past" sound natural/correct in the examples I made below?

a. Jane: My boyfriend is not romantic. He never brings me flowers. Anna: It's the same with me. My boyfriend isn't romantic either. Romanticism is a thing of the past.
b. Nobody cares about anybody else. And as for consideration: it's a thing of the past in today's society.

Thank you in advance!
