When relationships end, it may be because the spark is gone, or maybe you just can't make time for each other.
But climate change cause ruptures?
It could, depending onnew study that suggests albatrosses - some of the world's most loyal creatures - are more in "divorce ".
Research published in the Royal Society journal examined 15,500 breeding pairs in the Falkland Islands over 15 years.
Like humans, albatrosses also have a difficult growth phase, trying (and sometimes echoinguant) to find the best way to get into a relationship.
But eventually, when they find a good match, they normally stay together for life.
Only 1% of albatrosses go their separate ways after choosing their life partner - far below the data from the rate in the UK.
"Monogamy and long-term bonds are very common for them ", explains Francesco Ventura, researcher at the University of Lisbon and co-author of the study.
But in the years covered by the study with temperatures of 'warmer water, up to 8% of a lbatross couples separate.

The study indicates that "the

Francesco says there are two possible theories for augmentation - the first relating to the struggles of a long-distance relationship.
Warmer waters are forcing birds to hunt longer and fly further.
If the birds do not return in time for a breeding season, their mates may move on with a new mate.
Another theory is albatross stress hormones go upin more difficult environments, such as when the waters are warmer.
With more difficult breeding conditions and a shortage of food, this can cause more stress and a partner can be blamed for their "poor performance " - which can ultimately trigger the

Research comes as many international albatross populations are struggling.
Some 2017 data suggests the number of breeding pairs of the species is just over half of what they were in the 1980s.
Francesco says in the Falkland Islands, this is not of immediate concern to the population - but in other areas where the albatross population is limited, this is a concern.
"Temperatures are rising and will rise, so this could introduce more disturbance, " he says.
