  • Yep, me. We were seperated for 3 months,,, We couldn't seem to agree on anything and everything turned into a arguement...

    i guess those statements prove true:

    1. you don't know what you have till its gone
    2. if you let it go and it comes back then you know its meant to be...

    I think there is nothing worth quiting on a marriage... with the exception of cheating and abuse... all other things CAN be worked out!!

  • Me and Hubs have but there were never any other people involved, that would have been a deal breaker for both of us.

  • I know a couple that separated for a year, then got back together. I don't believe either of them dated during the separation, they needed space to work out their issues. Too many times people separate as a "pre-divorce" rather than actually working on their problems, they are the only ones I've ever known that ended up married afterward.

  • My grandparents separated at some point in their marriage, I believe after having my dad. They went on to reconcile, and stay married until my grandfather passed away in 1998. They'd been married at least 30 years.

  • Yes, I know a couple who separated for a while, got back together and after a couple years after that got divorce. Very sad!!

  • Yes, I know a couple who reconciled after 10 years of seperation. And 2 other couples who divorced and reconciled and stayed together forever. So I guess never say never when it comes to true love!
