Engagements were made to be broken as they say. My daughter almost committed suicide over a 5 year relationships end. She is so much happier now & with someone that is treating her like a woman wants to be treated, so if things are not good after 5 years, I would move on, they probably will only get worse.
5 years is the minimum marriage audition time-period for anyone who takes their life seriously. Move on, wait for God to plop another one in your lap. Better luck next time.
Minimum marriage audition..? For anyone who takes their life seriously? I'm pretty sure anyone who takes themselves seriously isn't gonna sit around for years for a "minimum marriage audition time-period."
That sureness will leave you terribly surprised.
Certainly I believe in commitment and working at relationships. Sometimes however I think people just grow apart. Maybe that's not something that can be predicted, either, 'cos life is so complicated.
