Thank you for reading and commenting! I love your perspective. And yes, there are sometimes great reasons — like addiction and abuse — to leave. I purposely left them out because there is so much that can and has been be written about those subjects elsewhere.

I like your distinction of “soft” and “hard” reasons. It’s an important distinction I didn’t think to make but your comment really helps make them clear. Your perspective is great. I agree with you that many relationships can overcome problems if they try, it’s just that there is so much incentive and encouragement not to.


One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
