Everyone knows *that* couple.

The couple that’s on again and off again, often in dramatic style.

They go through cycles of temporary breakups, or as I like to call them, fake ups, but are quickly posting about their love again and then it all starts over.

In a dating scenario, this may be cause for eye rolls and uncertainty, but what about when the stakes are higher? What happens when you dip not in and out of dating, but in and out of marriage?

These people know, and they’re here to tell us about it.

I guess sometimes it’s gonna work out, other times it’s a disaster. People are all different, there’s no one-size-fits all.

Have you ever been in an on again/off again situation?
