From The Last Samurai by Helen DeWitt:
There is a strange taboo in our society against ending something merely because it is not pleasant--life, love, a conversation, you name it, the etiquette is that you must begin in ignorance & persevere in the face of knowledge, & though I naturally believe that this is profoundly wrong it's not nice to go around constantly offending people.

There is also a strange taboo in our society that you have to be angry or discontent in order to leave a situation. Shouldn't a person be able to leave because they are simply ready to move on?
