What Orthodox Christianity says about heartbreak?Are there quotes from saints related to "heartbreak" etc?
When it happens, does it happen to prevent 2 people from marriage or it can also happen like a challenge to make their bond stronger( so that it can lead in a marriage with stronger roots) and their faith and trust to God too?

When your heart breaks...turn to God for strength.

...and know that time will heal this wound.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
