Sex & the Single Woman: Making the Call

This past year, one of my good friends was faced with a tough dilemma: should she break up with her boyfriend? They had been together for well over a year, and he’s a great guy. However, it seemed like they were in a rut and constantly arguing. Not an easy decision.

She decided to try and stick it out, and now they are better than ever. While I am extremely happy for her, I am left wondering how one makes a judgement call like this.

To break up with him could mean ending something amazing and never getting it back. To stay with him could have meant dragging out an eventual break up. How do you know when something is worth fighting for?
