    Once or twice. It was serious, but we got back together eventually (within a few days or longer).

    Yes. Multiple times, all serious.

    Yes, multiple times. Some of them weren't very serious (due to tempers, etc.) and others were.

    Yes. We say the words all of the time, but we're never serious.

    Kind of. It was serious and we said it, but never left and got back together within the night.

    Nope, not even once!

    Nope, not once in nine years! We haven’t even had a serious enough fight that would warrant something like that. We’re a team, always.

    (Edit: we were in our teens when we started dating, so young relationships do not necessary result in several breakups)

    Yes we did, for about ten minutes. I was fairly certain it was final and it was very serious, but we ended up working it within the day and got engaged a month later.

    Sorry, but Fiance was on and off with his last relationship and also separated from his ex-wife close to six times during the course of that relationship, and obviously those both worked out well.

    I took a break from my first serious guy after 2 years and when the break was over, so were we.

    Fi and I have promised each other to never do that.

    Once, for like a day and a half. I don’t even remember what the fight was about.

    We never did, My husband made it clear that break ups were final in his book so we never went there. I did however have a few relationships where we broke up and got back together multiple times. It was exhausting!

    No, we were slightly older when we met though (31 and 28).  With DH it was just ‘right’, i know that might sound cheesy but I have saved emails from the beginning of our relationship and we both said that it was just easy.  There were no worries, no questions even right from the very beginning.  It was so refreshing b/c i’d had some terrible relationships prior where i was always questioning and worrying…

    We were REALLY young when we started dating (13 and 16) and we broke up my senior year of high school. It was the best thing for us at the time. Our relationship wasnt particularily healthy and we didnt know how to be single and just be kids. I had a blast that year! I dated loads and spent a lot of time with the girls, but after 10 months with absolutely no communication, i reached out to him to just be friends again, and well, that didnt last long haha here we are today 7years after getting back together and 11 since we first started dating and we couldnt be happier ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, we were 18 and 19 and madly in love – but very independent and going to college on different coasts.  We still kept in touch and a year or two later, we decided that this was the real deal and worth doing the long-distance thing.  Now we’re in our 30s and married ๐Ÿ™‚

    There were alot of factors (first-time things) that we had to learn to deal with when we moved in together and started having children so we have had some huge arguments (seriously) and we have argued over stupid things (OMG the remote!). But we never moved out but we have called it off while we were together (I guess it can be done). We had “broken up” for 2 weeks at one point. Most of the time it was me throwing in the towel. We are amazed at what we have overcome and we now look back at that as an achievement thinking if we can make it thru that, we can make it thru anything. We still have our disagreements as husband and wife but my DH has taken the husband role to heart VERY much stating the “D” word WILL NOT be spoken in this house! LOL he kills me!

    My Fiance and I broke up for like 6 hours and I thought my life was over, it was in highschool just immature. He went to basketball practice that night and showed up at my house and took me out for hot chocolate ๐Ÿ™‚ we were back together

    Nope. But we were 29 when we met, so we were past that stage in life where you do the break up and get back together thing.

    We were 19 and 20 when we started dating. 7 years later we’re still together. It was a big change from the on again off again relationship I had with my ex for 3 1/2 years.

    I am not proud of it but we broke up twice during our first 7 months together.

    We broke up for about a week after dating for only 2 months, and we broke up for about a month after 7 months of dating. It was one of the worst times of my life. We realized that we loved each other and did not want to be without each other so we decided to work through our issues and stay together. We’ve been going strong ever since! ๐Ÿ™‚
