Preferably I would like to hear from those who have been married more than 10 years. Was there ever a time you almost broke up with your husband/wife or back then boyfriend/girlfriend? I myself have a girlfriend of 3 years and 7 months and just last week we were so close to breaking up. Nothing can describe the excruciating emotional pain we both went through from that even though we didn't break up. We are still a little awkward towards each other right now. So that means if we did break up I would be completely devastated and I don't think I can cope. I already suffer from anxiety and have a history of depression which doesn't help at all. BUT, I am not asking on how to cope. I just want to know whether this kind of situation is normal to happen once in a while for couples in long term relationships/marriage.
