I personally believe that the longer you're in a relationship the harder it is to leave, and that can pertain to any type of relationship.
When it comes to the romantic variety, I've personally endured some very VERY long relationships, and some extremely difficult breakups. I would say that the more bad blood there was between you, the worse it is. It seems like having so much to hate about the other person would make it easier to move on, but it doesn't.
When you break up with someone, you're not just leaving the relationship, you're also leaving a part of your life behind. And in many cases, even ones where the breakup was amicable, there can be a lot of open ended circumstances, and a lack of closure.
They say that for as long as you were together, it takes half as much time to get over. In my last long-term relationship, we were together for 6 years and it took me more than that to get over. But I also had a child with the other person, and having to deal with them on a regular basis kept the old feelings alive, and not the loving ones, I might add. Everything I hated about him, and still do, creeps up everytime we talk. It's difficult to breakup. No one likes saying goodbye.0
