MadameNoire Featured Video facing relationship difficulties with the woman trying to soothe the male.

As someone who as attempted the futile and rather hopeless break in a relationship—multiple times—and watched other couples give obstacles a try, I am decidedly someone who does not believe in taking a break from a relationship. I believe in being in a relationship or breaking up. Nobody even really knows what a break is. Are you…seeing other people? Are you single? Are you supposed to go to therapy? Nobody knows because breaks are kind of, well, unicorns—they aren’t real, but we’d like them to be. We force them to be. But you can put a sparkly third horn on a horse and you can call some odd time apart a fancy name like a “break” and at the end of the day, both of these are rather phony. Of course, people think they have their reasons for taking breaks. Here they are, and why they don’t hold much water. young businessman crippled with disappointment depressed and sad

One is depressed

Some couples take a break because one individual is depressed, and doesn’t feel emotionally strong enough to be in a relationship. It is, understandably, challenging when one person in a relationship is depressed. It can put a burden on the other so, some pairs think time apart is best.
