The year is 2017. Two of my closest friends are in agony over the impending break-up of their ten year long relationship. Their romance has seen the whole gamut of stuff you see in the movies. One could sense the romance in any space they were together. They were magical and, also, they were deeply dysfunctional. I had been an intimate witness to this decade-long saga — the becoming and unbecoming of their love. They were lovely people, but had been terrible to and for each other for a while. And now, they saw it, too, which made this decision even harder. There is no greater discomfort than the realization that your beloved is no longer the object of your desire but something else.. something precarious and uglier.. something unloved.
