Sounds like you might be in your relationships after they sour, TC1. Would like to hear more of your justification

DD1, stop trying to make this a thing

✉⚪⚪⚪⚪

I'm married so I'm not in a sour relationship what so ever. When you're married there's an additional level of commitment and trust you have with your partner. In my experience personally and through friends, relationships can end quickly because the trust isn't treasured. The relationship is thrown away too quickly due to "grass is greener" type thinking. Once both people decide they are committed long term, there's a layer of paranoia of the other persona leaving that's lifted.
