Is ‘taking a break’ in a relationship healthy?

The Psych Talk

The longer you’re in a relationship the more likely it is you will at some point wonder whether it would be a good idea to take a break from your relationship. There can be many good reasons to take a break but it may also be because you or your partner doesn’t see a future in your relationship.
