What's worse than being stuck in quarantine alone? Being stuck with a romantic partner you were thisclose to dumping before.
A recent Reddit thread asked people to share stories of being on lockdown with a significant other they can't stand. The answers, which also come from people who are mid-breakup, will make you thankful for your own quarantine situation.
Me and my wife separated 3 weeks ago. We were both in the process of finding different places to live but our town is shut down now. Needless to say it's been awkward and tense for us - a_new_guy_on_reddit
My ex & I broke up a couple of months ago. Still living together because our lease isn't up until September & neither of us has the money to break it. It's going okay, it's reasonably amicable, but I'm so thankful she is considered an "essential employee" & still working full-time. I'd be going insane if we were stuck in the house together, day in, day out. I'm just praying we don't actually end up in quarantine. - youhaveonehour
