The only thing worse than being quarantined away from your partner, is being quarantined with an ex - or someone you were in the process of breaking up with.
As much of the world remains under lockdown to contain the rapid spread of coronavirus, people are finding themselves trapped in unconventional relationship situations, ranging from local relationships that feel long distance to indefinitely rooming with an ex.
In a Reddit thread posted amidst lockdown, people jumped on to share what it's like to quarantine with an ex-partner, or a partner they planned to end things with.
Me and my wife separated three 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.
My ex and 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.
