    Sometimes people stay in a relationship with the hope that 'things will get better" or that their partner will "change" - which never happens. They hang on and on until they eventually give up hope and realize it is never going to happen and then move on.
    Other times, people get into relationships falling in love with who they THINK the other person is. As time goes by the person reveals a little more of their true self to them because it's extremely hard to keep up a front forever. Eventually, they feel like the person has "changed" and decide to move on.

    Because people and circumstances tend to change over time.
    Everyone has their own "must have traits" they want in a mate.
    Everyone also has their own "boundaries" and "deal breakers".
    If for example {cheating} is one of your "deal breakers" and after ten years of being together you discover your mate is cheating a lot of folks would understand why you would walk away.
    The same would be true if you suddenly found yourself in an abusive relationship whether it be physical or constant verbal abuse.
    Human beings make mistakes! (Including their mate selection process.) Not every marriage or relationship was "meant to be".
    Sometimes people come to the conclusion that they've fallen out of love, no longer share the same values, or want the same things.
    Generally speaking most people who divorce feel they stayed in their marriage far longer than they wished they had in hindsight.
    “Some people think that it’s holding on that makes one strong; sometimes it’s letting go.” — unknown
    It takes courage to leave a "known present" for an "unknown future".
    In order for him or her to be "the one" they would have to see (you) as being "the one". At the very least a "soul-mate" is someone who actually WANTS to be with you!
    Every ending is a new beginning!
