Rumi and Jin: We're getting a divorce ~! <3
Rumi: (...) It's not that we're not fond of each other... Even now, we really do!

Jin: Even before we got married, we were better as best friends than as a couple.
Rumi: Also, if only one of us had fallen, it'd be like a case of infidelity and extra-marital relationships and it wouldn't be good...

I'm giving you up
I've forgiven it all
You set me free-ee
Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
Adele, "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)"

[Dick and I] dated for years, all through college. Were were good together. [...] I guess we grew apart... grew up. We stayed friends, but I hadn't seen him in years.

Phèdre: Was she your lover?
Delaunay: A long time ago. [grin] We are well-matched in many ways, but that was not one of them; unless it be that we were too well-matched. If neither will give way in love, it is not pleasing in the eyes of Naamah. [shrug] Still, I do not think either of us gave the other cause for regret.
Delaunay about him and Melisande, Kushiel's Dart
