Many relationships get stuck in the on-off phase, and mending them can prove to be a difficult task. A Ukrainian couple who were facing a similar problem and grew tired of arguing came up with a bizarre “experiment” on Valentine’s Day to stop breaking up with each other. Read on to know more.
It all started when a 28-year-old beautician named Viktoria Pustovitova wanted to break up with her 33-year-old boyfriend Alexandr Kudlay who works as an online car salesman. Kudlay explains, “We used to break up once or twice a week. When during another fight Vika once again said that we had to break up, I replied: ‘Then I will attach you to myself.'” Thus, in order to mend their relationship, the couple handcuffed their hands together for 3 months in an ultimate test of love.

As per a report in NDTV, Pustovitova initially refused the idea, and hung up on him when he suggested it. But eventually, she changed her mind and said yes to the proposition. She said, “I decided it will be an interesting experience for me, that it will bring into my life new bright emotions which I did not experience before. I love him, so I came to a decision to do it.”
Currently living in their flat in the eastern city of Kharkiv, they have been handcuffed together for a month now. Kudlay said, “In terms of physical comfort, with every day passing, we are getting used to it more and more. It gets easier.” At the same time, they also admit that “some tension has come up” but they always end up finding new ways of dealing with such discords.
“Fights between us did not disappear, we still fight. But when we approach a dead end and there is no understanding between us, we simply stop talking instead of packing up our things and walking away,” Kudlay concluded.
