    Are breakups applicable only for husband and wife OR a man and woman in love? Is it ok for parents to breakup especially when the children are still minor?

    it is very important for people to realize the difference between a toxic and healthy relationship. unfortunately, due to TV and movies, people have the wrong idea about love and many times end up in the wrong situation.

    Its not easy to call off relationship , specially when our mind, body ,and soul is engaged with that person , It is easy to say that I can face world alone, but practically we need someone to take care, to guide, to mentor for whole life.

    what if the relationship is complicated in a completely different way

  • chandy

    Nothing justifies staying in an abusive relationship... One big reason,people stay is when people do not realize that they are being abused.. They make excuses for the abusive behaviour, often mislabeling possessiveness or controlling behaviours to be that 'he/she loves me so much'

    Its better to stay away from such a partner, But her memories are killing me.

  • rakeshbgupta

    But if the relationship makes you weak,negative and affecting your mood n performance in every other sphere of life then its better to face the world alone.

    This article correctly mentions the reasons not to end the relationship. Being alone and facing the world is the most scary thought one can have.
