A friend of mine decided to end her relationship after 8 years. Yes that’s right, 8 years and they were not married. It may not be a surprise to many but, my friend is just not the type. She is of the notion that people who want to be together should be married. But this guy was just never ready. There was always a reason or excuse rather and she patiently waited. I’m sad for her. Even in the end, he didn’t step up. He just let her go and now she has to start her life all over again.
