Breaking Up... Badly
Sometimes someone doesn't want to get broken up with... we asked historical figures what to do...

We started asking ourselves: why would someone ever write to an advice columnist, when history's filled with people who have gone through similar situations? So we started this series so we could get answers from real experience.* This week, we got a letter from a woman whose "boyfriend" doesn't want to break up. Check out what Simone de Beauvoir, Joan of Arc, Marc Antony and more have to tell her.**
