Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin, broke off her engagement to Levi Johnston for the second time recently. This made us think about couples we know that break up and get back together again constantly. Sometimes there is an important issue in the relationship that breaks it apart, such as when an important life goal of one partner conflicts with a goal of the other partner. This is the classic irreconcilable differences and the partners go their separate ways. At times, one partner may wonder if the relationship is more important than his/her individual goal. If he/she answers “yes” he/she seeks to return to the relationship. All is fine until the importance of the life goal once again dominants and then its time to break up again. We’d love to hear from any of you who have weathered multiple break-ups with the same partner and ended up Madly in Love Forever. Please share.
