Models[edit] Several psychological models have been proposed to explain the process of a relationship breakup, many suggesting that 'relationship dissolution occurs in stages'.[3] Stages leading to a breakup[edit] L. Lee[4] proposes that there are five stages ultimately leading up to a breakup. Dissatisfaction – one or both partners grow dissatisfied with the relationship Exposure – both partners mutually become aware of the problems in the relationship Negotiation – both partners attempt to negotiate a solution to problems Resolution and transformation – both partners apply the outcome of their negotiation Termination – proposed resolution fails to rectify issues and no further solutions are accepted or applied Cycle of a breakup[edit] Steve Duck outlines a six-stage cycle of relationship breakup,[5] including Dissatisfaction with the relationship Social withdrawal Discussion of the reasons for the discontentment Going public Tidying up the memories Recreating sense of one's own social value Factors that predict a breakup before marriage[edit] Hill, Rubin and Peplau[6] identify 5 factors that predicted breakup before marriage: Unequal involvement in the relationship Age difference Different educational aspirations Difference in intelligence Difference in physical attractiveness

Uncoupling theory[edit] In 1976, sociologist Diane Vaughan proposed an "uncoupling theory," where there exists a "turning point" in the dynamics of relationship breakup – 'a precise moment when they "knew the relationship was over," when "everything went dead inside"' – followed by a transition period in which one partner unconsciously knows the relationship is going to end, but holds on to it for an extended period, even for years.[7] Vaughan considered that the process of breakup was asymmetrical for initiator and respondent: the former 'has begun mourning the loss of the relationship and has undertaken something tantamount to a rehearsal, mentally and, to varying degrees, experientially, of a life apart from the partner'.[8] The latter then has to play catch-up: 'to make their own transition out of the relationship, partners must redefine initiator and relationship negatively, legitimating the dissolution'.[9] As a result, for Vaughan 'getting out of a relationship includes a redefinition of self at several levels: in the private thoughts of the individual, between partners, and in the larger social context in which the relationship exists'.[10] She considered that 'uncoupling is complete when the partners have defined themselves and are defined by others as separate and independent of each other – when being partners is no longer a major source of identity'.[10]
