I was having a discussion with a friend yesterday about people in relationships “taking breaks.” We never came to a conclusive decision about if “taking a break” is a good or bad thing. This reminded me of the last season of 90210 and how it left off with Annie and Liam parting for the summer, but they are not broken up… so does that qualify as “taking a break?” Does taking a break from you partner do the soul good or is it just a passive way of breaking up? If you do not talk to your partner during that time of your “break”, then how do your problems become solved? I guess during the break you might realize that you miss that person and care about them, but do those qualifications alone justify being with some you are not compatible with? Hmmm….we’ll see what the cards have in store for Annie and Liam this upcoming season and if their time apart does their souls any good.
