What is your reason for divorce, or reason for ending a relationship..?
or the reason to end a long term relationship.....
I ended my relationship with my first boyfriend of 2.5 years because he was an abusive *insert really insulting swearword here*.
I ended my last relationship (also of 2.5 years) because it was becoming obvious that he had a very large list of priorities in his life and I was sinking further and further down on that list. When you find yourself either eating alone or having to plan meals around his online friend's schedules, and when you find yourself having to book simple things, like cuddling in front of the tv, days in advance (when you live together); that's where I drew the line.
What about you?
(Also it appears that 2.5 years seems to be the magic (?) number hahahah)
Everyone is entitled to have their own boundaries or "deal breakers".
For me cheating, constant fighting, alcohol/drug addiction, criminal acts, physical abuse, emotional and physical neglect, or the realization we no longer share the same values/want the same things.
There is no amount of communication or work that can overcome being with someone who does not want what you want.
Like attracts like and opposites attract divorce attorneys.
Human beings make mistakes! This includes choosing the wrong mate for oneself! A divorce when it's all said and done is a public admission that a mistake was made in the mate selection process.
There are only two ways to experience joy and peace of mind in relationships: We either get what we want or we learn to be happy with what we have. Accept them as (is) or move on.
They don't give out "whoopee cookies" for staying in toxic marriages.

I know that getting married young was probably the first sign that marriage was maybe a bad idea, but a marriage isn't going to work when only one person is putting forth an effort to make it work. I was 22 when I got married; I thought that I was happy until my husband quit his job. I understand...
