    We’ve been together for 7 years, and we never broke up. I always said if we break up, it’s permanent. We worked through our problems and dealt with long distance. We’re stronger for it. Oh, I was 19 when we started dating, he was 21.

    We broke up for a day after a really confusing argument where we both acted dumb, 3 months in. Once we figured it out and talked, I realized I over reacted. So yes, technically, but not in a long term sense. 

    I also never see us not being able to work something out. I have this internal propulsion that leads me to solution with him every single time.

    So I’ve actually broken up with my fiance like three-four times. We broke up after we were dating for like 5 months but all of our friends were best friends so we kept hanging out , and ended up hooking up casually, telling ourselves that we weren’t ready to “be together.” This was my Sophomore year of college, his Junior year.

    Then we got back together and two weeks later, broke up again, after fighting all the time. Then we got back together AGAIN and at this point, all of my friends were telling me we were not meant to be together and that I was making a mistake. But, I felt like we were meant to be together and stuck it out.

    About a year and a half later, he went to law school and broke up with me for another girl! He dated her for a month, during which we had some drama but eventually stopped speaking and I finished out my senior year of college with a bang. Sometime that year he apologized and said the separation only made him realize how I was the only person for him yada yada yada. 

    I dealt with some serious insecurities, and doubt, when we first got back together but that was almost three years ago and I never waiver in my trust now. Our relationship is one of the strongest I know now, and is truly what I would describe as a partnership.

    So although I wish that wouldn’t have happened, I think it made us both grow and realize how much we meant to each other, and to approach our relationship with maturity and openness.
