If there’s one thing you should not say during a fight, it’s: “Let’s break up”.
That line is the worst thing you could say during a fight for so many reasons:
- You’ll regret it.
You’ll regret saying those words pretty much as soon as they come out of your mouth, if not later. This is because the cold hard truth, is that you didn’t mean it. If you break up during a fight, chances are, you only suggested the breakup in the heat of the moment. You were so angry at the person you wanted to make them really hurt- and what better way to do it then to break up with them?Moral of the story: Think carefully about whether or not you want to break up with your significant other over a petty argument about how they always forgets to order extra FUCKING pineapple on the Hawaiian pizza. So don’t do it, just in case they don’t take you back- and then it’s just you and your pineapple.
- You’ll end the relationship on bad terms.
If you truly love, or at least loved at some point, your significant other, then you wouldn’t want to break up with them on bad terms. Just remember that for the duration you’ve been together romantically, you’ve been one another’s best friend.Moral of the story: Just really make sure you’ve been fair when considering a breakup. It’s disrespectful to the relationship you’ve built together if you break up with the other person on a whim, during a fight.
- You’ll hurt longer.
Say the break up sticks, and you and your significant other really aren’t together anymore. All that anger, frustration and unfinished business, tied to that one argument, will haunt you for a long time. Sometimes you’ll feel regret, and you’ll think to yourself “maybe I was wrong, and I should have apologized” (sorry buddy, too late). Sometimes you’ll feel anger because of the way that “jackass” treated you.Moral of the story: You don’t get closure from angry break ups. To be vulgar, it’s kind of like herpes. The lingering anger will always be there, waiting to drag you back down when you ponder a little too much before you go to bed at night.
- It’s better to live with them than live without them.
If you really think your significant other is so unbearable that you’d be better off without them, then go ahead. Break up with them. But don’t do it during an argument, for the aforementioned reasons. You’ll be better off if you let yourself calm down first before spitting out irrational words like, “let’s break up”. Most of the time though, you’ll realise that it’ll be much harder trying to get used to life without them, and you’re better off just getting over it and making up.Moral of the story: Just be an adult and have a civilized talk with your significant other over what’s bothering you. After all, isn’t that what relationships are about? Getting to know what makes the other person tick, and compromising? Not hurling hurtful words, you’ll regret later on, at each other like a bunch of Capuchin monkeys throwing faeces at one another.
- You don’t want to be that couple.
We’ve all got that couples friend who constantly break up, get back together, and break up again. They do it so often, you need Facebook to tell you whether or not they’re still together… at the moment. It’s tiring and frustrating for you, and extremely tedious for the friends who have to offer their support every, single, time you break up with your significant other. And soon, their lips will be saying, “are you okay?” but they’ll really be thinking, “oh here we go again”.Moral of the story: Make sure when you break up with your significant other, it’s a clean break. No anger, no mess, no getting back together. And if you won’t do it for the sake of your relationship, or for the sanity of your friends, at least do it for this cute kitty cat.
Well then, hope that was somewhat insightful. I do want to mention one last point though. The ONLY time it is EVER okay to break up with your significant other during a fight, is if, and ONLY IF, they have cheated on you. If they’ve done the dirty on you, go ahead and dump that mother fucker’s ass. Do it in public. Do it in their car and then smash their head lights in or something. Just make sure they get the message loud and clear: “IT’S OVER YA SCUMBAG”.
