'We were on a break!': 15 newly single people share their ex's version of the breakup

‘I’m gonna give your dog away': Woman gifts her sister and boyfriend a puppy but they break up, now the sisters can't decide who is responsible for the dog

You can divide the people of the world into two groups. The first group is people who see their pets as actual family members. People who think twice before they adopt an animal, and seriously consider all the factors of bringing in a pet inside their household.

The second group of people, and I'm sure you can see where I am going with this, are the people who see pets as just another piece of furniture in t…

'Ex-wife told me to remove all my stuff from her storage unit. So I did': Guy takes washer, dryer, and car from cheating ex after she demands they take all their belongings out of storage

Breakups are the worst —just ask this person. Falling in love is magical, that's why it's called the honeymoon phase. Couples get to know each other and discover endless things to love about each other. The honeymoon phase doesn't last forever, though.

'People don't [know] what they want': 25+ candid reasons behind today's breakups

People are getting candid online about why their relationships are falling apart. No, the answer is not because Mercury is in retrograde, although if you haven't noticed, there have been an unusually high number of breakups and divorces this year among public figures and celebrities.
