A couple who chained themselves together as a way to test their love have finally untied themselves after 123... and immediately broke up. Ah well, at least you tried, eh guys?
Viktoria 'Vika' Pustovitova, 29, and Alexander 'Sasha' Kudlay, 33, from Kharkiv in Ukraine, linked themselves together on Valentines Day to test their bond, but it turns out that spending all that time together took its toll on the relationship and the pair are now very happy to be going their own way.
The couple used cutters to severe the chain with Vika shouting 'hurray' as they were finally freed from each other.
She went on to say: "I want to live my own independent life, and grow as an independent person."
While Sasha added: "Thank you all for supporting us. Look, we are now at a distance from each other.
"We were happy, and we are now happy to have had this experience in our lives."
On social media, Sasha explained why they'd decided to split writing: "Difficulties are snowballing.
"As soon as we find one plus in a situation, immediately there are two minuses.
"Vika wants to get back to the rhythm of her earlier life, she misses what she used to love to do.
"She doesn't respond well to my suggestions to keep doing what she likes to do alongside me."
He went on: "We are trying really hard not to escalate conflicts.
"I struggle with hearing noise when I cook, or on the phone.
"And I don't like to spend so much time by the mirror every morning."
After a four-hour long argument, Sasha posted: "Our resources are running dry.
"We need to relax in a big crowd, to let go of each other. We need to reboot.
'When we go shopping, we start fresh and happy, and finish up like squeezed lemons."
Meanwhile, Vika wrote: "We are a bit fed up with each other. It is complicated for me...
"I was nervous, am nervous and, probably, will continue to be nervous.
"Yes, I had flashes where I wanted to remove the chain, and jerked it. But then time passed, I calmed down."
The couple had planned to get hitched but now, much like their chains, that idea is on the scrap heap.
