What does a relationship need for it to last long? Love, respect, understanding, and patience. Another foundation of a relationship is commitment. Without it, everything may start to fall apart.
It is easy to be drawn to temptation if you are away from your beloved one. Cheating has been a major reason why couples start to fight or worse, break apart. Not only do the two parties were hurt, but if they have children, they are the ones who hurt the most when their parents separate.
A recent post of a single mother who wrote an open letter to her ex-boyfriend and his wife is trending on Facebook. Justine Ann Redimano Magbitang met her boyfriend Ivan Jester Chavez while in college. They grew closer, became a couple, and already met each other’s family.
Everyone thought that their relationship would turn into marriage and will last forever. Justine was about to embark on a ship and fulfill her dreams but Ivan stopped her. He proposed to her, planned to get married, and asked if he can just continue working on a ship first to work for their family. Justine agreed on this plan, thinking that they will soon work together on the ship. Later on, she got pregnant but she also discovered about her boyfriend’s cheating.
But things got worse when Ivan married another woman while fulfilling his dreams on the ship. This broke Justine’s heart, making her a single mother.
