As a late 20-something, couples falling in and out of love is not something new to me, it happens fairly often. However, when one such couple broke up over the weekend, I was shocked. A six year relationship was broken in a matter of two weeks. And not just any six year relationship but one in which everyone outside only asked the question – so when is he going to propose? Having known them over the last five years, it seemed like they had survived everything and were a source of inspiration for me – If they can do it then maybe I can too logic. Its the first time in a long time that I have been shocked by a breakup and while it probably wont be the last, this one does erode my faith in relationships a little bit. If this couple cant survive then it honestly cannot be easy for the rest of them out there.
