Even though the distress that you experience is uncomfortable, it serves a useful function. This uncomfortable feeling stimulates both of you to think about your relationship and your roles in it. It also gives you a push to get back together.
Most fights dissolve within a couple of days. Some breakups last for a couple of weeks. If the breakup is prolonged there is increasing likelihood for the relationship to fall apart.
