Should I Break-up my Relationship? Dr. Molly Barrow Author Relationship Expert

You have to know when to hold ’em, and when to fold ’em. Unfortunately, the longer the ability to love (Love-line)especially for the longest, the greater is the ability to sacrifice, persevere and endure. Longerlines rarely walk out on someone for whom they feel compassion. They stay, suffer and try harder, thinking they can make it better with more effort and love. They are in trouble, because it will only get worse for them—and their partner.
Many people will voluntarily stay in a truly untenable relationship out of feelings of loyalty, obligation, their vows, religious values, fear of starting over and being alone and lonely again, or in deference to the constraints of their belief systems. What they fail to realize is the cycle of pain they are voluntarily bringing upon themselves and their partner.
The point here is to understand that some relationships do not have longevity, no matter how hard either or both of you try. Try your best to make a relationship work, and never make a decision to terminate a committed relationship lightly or rashly. Just be willing to recognize a situation that is irreparable or dangerous. However, remaining friends with an Ex is commendable and is especially important when you share children. As the great chess masters know, there comes a definitive point in any game when the outcome is certain defeat and that player gracefully resigns—not as an act of cowardice, but rather, a rational judgment of reality and act of respect for the other player’s time. For help in saving your relationship, read Matchlines.
