totally wasted,man

A Facebook friend recently posted the question:
What do we waste?

He was talking about things like medication, education for people who don't want it - those kinds of things.  But I thought it made an interesting point about relationships and people.

At the end of a somewhat...no make that extremely...tumultuous relationship I was told that I had made my ex ''waste a year of his life''.

At the end of my marriage, I grieved that I had invested 15 years into something that no longer was.   Not for a second did I consider it a waste.

Which is true?  Is the time spent in a relationship that doesn't work out a waste? Is it an investment? Is it neither - just, as the Taoists would say, IS?
