Space in a Healthy Relationship

So I have noticed something. A lot of couples break up because they need space. Or so they claim. 

I have issues with that. For one, why do you need space when you are in a positive and happy relationship where your significant other is not clingy, and you both respect each other’s lives by allowing the other to fulfill their other duties?

My view is, if you need space, a relationship isn’t for you. Because then each time you are in a relationship, you would break that relationship off at some point so that you can get your “space.” You are not committed or invested in your relationship if this is the case. 

The other person isn’t there at your convenience. Whenever you need him/her, they are there but you drop them each time you feel the need too.

If you are in a relationship, especially a long term relationship, you must learn to manage your life with your significant other’s. It’s called compromise. Don’t give up too easily. Talk about it. 

A healthy relationship is about understanding the other person and that you have a life to live apart from the togetherness. You have a job, studies, a family to support and help. Your loved one understands this. Don’t give up on something good because you need “space.” The truth is, if that happens, all you really need is yourself and you don’t care about the other person’s feelings.

A healthy relationship has space embedded into it by supporting each other. You make it work!

What do you guys think?

Yours truly,
