When things go wrong in a relationship, lots of women choose to speak out about their experiences. Some stories are a warning to other women to look out for signs of cheating, betrayal or secrecy . Other stories have a more positive message, explaining how obstacles can be overcome to make a relationship better than ever. But whatever the story, at Sell My Story our writers are always ready to listen and provide balanced, empathetic advice. This week four women have spoken out about how problems in their love life resolved themselves in very different ways.
