Finding someone to spend your life with can be one of life's most fulfilling endeavors, but for most people, it can be marked by challenges and missteps along the way. Nearly everyone has dated someone who's not quite right for them, and while breakups are often really hard to deal with, they're definitely better than spending your life in a not-ideal union.

This detail might surprise you.
After all, tickling is something that happens in the majority of relationships. Most people probably don’t consider it to be a break-up-with-able offense.
But Kendrick did. Here’s why:
