Knowing when the relationship is over
In a hospital when a patient passes away, the doctors have to call it, they have to say the time of death and declare it so that it can be noted down and added to the death certificate. Horrid as it sounds, this is one of the many difficult things that doctors have to do as a part of their job. An occupational hazard they are trained for and therefore cannot escape.
A skill similarly ominous though without as much responsibility is the ability to call time of death in a relationship. How can we as normal consenting adults who chose to be in a romantic relationship decide when it ends? What are the signs, and no matter how heartbreaking it seems, when do you know?
