How do you know for sure that it's over and wouldn't be a mistake to end things?

What I mean is how can you tell what's a rough patch and what's the end?

Hi. Didn't want to read and run.

How about trying a trial separation? See if being apart pulls you back together?

Do you want to make it work?

When the thought of being single makes you feel happier than being with the person.

Or if they do something that crosses your line ie abuse, affair.

I want to make it work but I'm not sure we can.

Trial separation isn't really an option as there is nowhere for one person to leave to

He wants it to work

I don't know if it can be ok or not

Should be plenty rooms for rent no, space would help you both decide better.

I don't think he'd be keen to do that although I could broach the topic

Have you been to counselling to talk the issues through?

No we haven't

We have talked though
