I haven't been to my "home" country in 29 years and I am still quite fluent in both my mother tongues. I think forgetting your first language is just laziness.
Good for you, honestly. However, what is true for you isn't true for others. It also doesn't matter WHY someone forgets his own language after a while. A fact is that many indeed do.

So just because she's lived her for a few years as a teen some 25 years ago doesn't automatically mean she still speaks German fluently. It doesn't even mean that she still understands or speaks any of it.

But that's not really the point here.
