Do you think tragedy is more likely to bring two people closer for the wrong or right reasons?
I am curious about this because my boyfriend’s good friend from college was dating this guy for about a year. I believe she was with him because she was new to the area and enjoyed the idea of being in a relationship/having someone to lean on and care for in a city she wasn’t that familiar with. The two of them would fight, fight, fight alllllllll the time!
Then about 6 months ago…her father suddenly died and her bf became her system of support. From what I understand the two of them have a much stronger relationship than they did before (I am not sure that she really “loves” him though, or if she is just keeping him around). Do you think something like this fades over time and things will revert back to the way they once were? Or is something like the death of a parent or other tragedy strong enough to bring people together for a lifetime?
