    FI and I broke up twice in the first year that we dated. We were only 19. The first time was for a couple of days, the second time it was for about 2 weeks. They were both relatively stupid issues that caused the breakups, looking back, but at the time it felt serious. That was over 5 years ago, though, so we’ve definitely moved past it.

    We broke up for about 6 months last year. It was awful, but in the end it was the best thing that could have happened to us. We are so much better now- we fight fair, we communicate, we really appreciate what we have and are all around happier than we had ever been.

    Nope, but we were also older when we met (28 and 33).

    My husband and I broke up for about 2 months back when we first started dating. It actually ended up being a good thing, it really helped him get over some things from his past and realize how much he cared about me. We’ve been together ever since.

    I’m just not one for second chances in love. Break-ups are final.

    DH and I called off our engagement and I moved out with our daughter about 5 months after he proposed (the first time–almost 4 years ago, now). That being said, we continued ‘dating’ and worked on the foundation of our relationship before we got back together. We had been together for over 9 years at that point, and we wanted to make sure we weren’t just in it out of comfort.

    Looking back on things, now, the break wasn’t really needed, but it definitely made us stronger.

    Dh and I were each other’s 1st bf/gf in high school. We dated 2 years and then I broke up with him (long distance relationship). We never spoke or see one another for 5 years, ran into each other randomly, moved in, were engaged a year later and married a year after that!

    @bakeress1:  SO and I were together since we were 16 and 18. At 20 and 22 we broke up for a few months.

    We had been through a lot together and he had recently come back from Iraq and was suffering from PTSD (still does). Anyway, he left me and I was devastated.

    We finally got back together when he realized he couldn’t live without me, and to be honest I wasn’t doing so well without him either. We had both gone down a path of alcoholism and pill abuse without each other. I know we sound super dependent and pathetic lol

    We’re 24 and 26 now and happy as ever 🙂

    @bakeress1:  FFI and i broke up twice…one when he was in law school..and i was in college in different states…we broke up for 4 months. It was a lot for us to take at that moment. The second time was beginning of this year and this break up made us stronger in so many ways. We have been together for 10 years. We literally grew up together. So the break up was more of a way to find ourselves and honestly grow. We went back and things have change drastically for the better. We recently purchased our first home!! and we will be getting engaged before the end of this year!!! Im so excited!!

    @bakeress1:  We haven’t, but my friend and her guy broke up for a few months two years ago. He was the one who wanted it at the time (too much responsibility on his shoulders all at once I think). It seems to have been a good thing though because they get married next month. Smile

    Back when my DH and I first started dating, I broke up with him for a year.  I knew I was going to marry him and I wasn’t ready for how serious it was at that age (22).  So I went off and lived the single life and did a whole bunch of things I knew I needed to do before I got back together with the man of my dreams.  I’m lucky he was still there waiting for me!

    Nope. We once considered taking a break when we knew we’d have to be in a LDR for 9 months because of the bad rep it gets especially as this was about 6 months after we got together but when the time came, we couldn’t do it.

    @bakeress1:  Nope we haven’t! 


    I have had that happen in past relationships though.  I think when I was younger I was more dramatic.
