The entire relationship is not lost. The relationship has merely been reshaped to incorporate a healthy way for the participants to enjoy each other in a healthy way.
But sometimes the entire relationship *is* lost. Sometimes the hurt/anger/betrayal/whatever is so deep that there isn't a way to reshape the relationship - at least not at first and maybe not ever.

And when that happens, there is (at least speaking personally) a very deep sense of something being broken. Something being damaged. Just like a pretty vase gets broken: Maybe you can glue it back together and get some resemblence of the original, but what exists now is not what was. What was, was broken and can't be restored.

I dunno. To me "break up" is pretty accurate in describing the state and the pain felt, in most cases.
