Splitting up with a partner is never easy. Whether you'd been with them for a short while but saw the relationship lasting, or you've been together for years and the breakdown has been gradual - losing someone you cared deeply about is a difficult thing to come to terms with.
Is it over? When the bad patch just doesn't seem to be lifting and it's becoming harder and harder to remember why you're with him, it's probably time to question whether you should continue on as a couple. Our 10 signs your relationship is over could help you decide what to do next.
Break-ups: When it first happens, it will feel like your whole world has fallen apart but know that YOU WILL NOT FEEL LIKE THIS FOREVER. Try to focus on the positives, even if they are hard to find. The truth of the matter is, the relationship you were in was not the right relationship for you, or it wouldn't have come to an end. Whether you or he were the instigators of the break-up, you now have a chance to find someone you are better suited to who won't make you feel like this. Our expert guide to getting through the inital break-up period might offer some comfort at this tricky time.
Divorce: Admitting that your marriage is over is a big step, but one that unfortunately some couples do have to make. When all attempts to salvage what you once had have failed, getting help and support, (both legal and emotional) through the next steps is key. Our guide to the divorce process should give you an idea of where to begin with it all.
