Why does someone end a relationship suddenly?
The fear of premature commitment is one of the most common reasons people cite for leaving relationships. They often feel pressure to make promises they may not be able to keep, especially on the other end of someone who is ready for a long-term relationship.
Can one still love someone after the relationship ends?
Ending a relationship is never easy - and it can be even harder if there is still love shared. According to research published in The Journal of Positive Psychology, it takes 11 weeks to feel better after a relationship ends. But a separate study found it takes closer to 18 months to heal from the end of a marriage.
