I totally agree that for some this is very hard to do and what is a good gauge to determine when to throw in the towel? For me it is a matter of the pain/pleasure balance. If you spend the majority of your time feeling pain and anxiety then I believe you should move on or reshape the nature of your relationship. For some this is easy, for others it is definitely not.
If you have to resort to sustained medication to deal with your relationship then I also think it is time to move on.
