Many people break up with their significant others during a fight and ultimately regret it.
When two people are in a fight, there are a lot of emotions on display.
It is hard to think rationally when one is so emotional.
As a result, someone tells the other that it is over and breaks up.
At that moment, they believe that the relationship is done.
So emotionally entangled in how their significant other did them wrong, they refuse to look beyond that.
This especially happens in relationships that are relatively new.
Relationships that are relatively new, a few months old, are in infancy.
There hasn’t been enough time for both parties to learn about each other’s weaknesses and what helps the relationship work.
They have gotten out of the initial honeymoon phase of the relationship where everything seemed so rosy into the next stage of the relationship where things have began to get more real.
The rosy colored glasses are beginning to wane and they are beginning to see facets or elements of their partner that they never saw before.
This is when a relationship is most ripe for a breakup during a fight.
The honeymoon phase is over and there is now some real relationship living to do.
You are now meeting members of the significant other’s family that you don’t like.
You are now hearing your significant other complain about something that bothers them that you tend to do.
You are now seeing your significant other show a little less enthusiasm when you are around.
They don’t seem as excited as they were when you first got into the relationship.
They seem like they are beginning to go through the motions and are getting used to you.
There are less dates.
The compliments you got so used to hearing are less as well.
All of these factors are affecting you daily.
You aren’t acknowledging the impact they are having on you, but the impact is real.
Bit by bit, each day is arduous.
Your significant other forgot to tell you that they loved you that day, here is a problem.
Your significant other couldn’t come see you that evening, as they had to stay at work and get caught up on a project.
Yet another problem.
Over time, all of this starts to add up.
It just doesn’t feel quite the same as it was when you first started dating.
Now, you have your first big fight and you are telling each other it is over.
The emotions of the moment got the best of you.
Emotions that have built up over time that you never resolved got the best of you too.
You break up after the fight believing that you have done the right thing.
A few days later, you begin to miss your significant other and regret.
You regret it and make yourself believe you were at fault for the fight and should make amends.
