has 'verlet' => ( is =>'rw', isa => 'ArrayRef[Molecule::Atom]', required => 1, weak_ref => 1, default => sub { [] }, );

I'm pretty sure the weak_ref => 1 is wrong, because you don't keep another reference to the array. So when method add_verlet exits, the array reference is garbage-collected, and on the next call replaced by the default value.

So, remove the weak_ref => 1.

Once your object is destroyed, the array will also be destroyed. Since you weaken() the objects inside the array, they will go away as soon as your external references to them go away.

so I see that the actual question is how I said to perl that I do not want to destroy the objects stored in the array?

You don't have to do anything special. Remove all the weaken and weak_ref stuff. (You only need that if your object graph contains circles). The objects only go away once all references to them are gone, so usually you don't have to take care about it at all.

    [marto]: poorly thought out non products, sold to parents as "fun" things for kids to have, while providing "security" features (track your kid over the interwebs)
    [LanX]: oh didn't see the link, poor contrast
    [marto]: "Through a few simple steps, a stranger can take control of the watch and track, eavesdrop on and communicate with the child. They will be able to track the child as it moves or make it look like the child is somewhere it is not..." and so on
    [LanX]: so Strangers can easily seize control of the children
