Lex Gabrielle 6 Nov 2020

In life, couples go through a lot of struggles and obstacles to keep a relationship thriving and afloat. Sometimes, some fights get so big that they cannot come back from it. Some problems become so hard to handle that individuals decide it's the "breaking point" for them and there is no turning back.

Some women said they ended their marriages for reasons such as cheating and adultery. Others said that they ended their marriages because of things like finances and differences in money management.

The post that started the thread came from a tweet where a man described the moment he knew he wasn't in love with his partner anymore.

According to the tweet, the man said the realization happened when he didn't offer any assistance to his partner, who happened to be carrying a number of heavy boxes at the time.

This tweet prompted an interesting discussion topic for people in the Facebook group. They began sharing their own moments of realization that signaled their relationship was over.

For many members of the group, infidelity was to blame for their relationship's demise.

One woman said that her marriage ended when her husband not only had an affair with her best friend — but also got her pregnant.

"That was the day my marriage ended," she said.

As many women chimed in for the very exact moment that they knew their marriage was over, one stood out among the rest because it was something that many women had never heard happen.

The woman commented that it all took place during labor when giving birth to their child.

"When he told me to shush during labour. I had a sudden flash of clarity and I knew I would be raising this baby alone because I deserved better," she wrote in her comment which was later picked up by publications like The Mirror.

For some people, this may seem like a small issue that doesn't warrant ending a marriage.

Some people think that being "shushed" during childbirth may be something minor, but clearly this woman felt that it showcased a bigger issue that could happen to her down the road.

And, even still, the woman said it didn't happen overnight.

"Still took me a year to get to the breakup, but I never forgot that moment of certainty," she wrote.

Apparently, that was the "straw that broke the camel's back," so they say.

The original thread was a part of a private Facebook group, therefore it is only visible to members of the group.

However, that hasn't stopped the post from going viral. It has been featured in a number of publications including The Sun and The Mirror for its honest — and at times — surprising responses.

It seems that once a woman knows, she knows.

While many women shared their story, one thing was clear through it all: Every woman knew when it was time to say goodbye and walk away. It seems that women know exactly when it's done.
