The question of whether a relationship can last or not is determined by the people who are involved in it and not most of anything else. Breaking up four times might mean that you might not have had a good start, and haven't had a full year of going out might mean you are in a long-distance relationship, but it definitely is not an indicator of how things will turn out to be. Relationship is a story between two people, if they truly love each other and work to prove it, chances are that they've already been certain about their relationship's outcome.

I would like to start my answer, by explaining a bit about why do people break-up. This is in my experience. So I broke up with my girlfriend because she did not understand me. Not understanding a person, invites opposition, and opposition causes the fighting. I believe not that it is anyone's fault. I hope you've understood why breakups occur. Now, the 5th time, depends if you understand each other, from an emotional point of view. From a mathematical point of view, the probability of the relationship not working is 4/5. There is always hope however. My teacher once told me that we spend our entire lives living in the probability between 1 and 0. I hope my answer was helpful.

In theory, every relationship can last forever. However, in practice, sadly I think that particular relationship is a waste of time. Either have an honest conversation and see if you are good for each other, or give up. One must feel loved and respected, as well as certain and trust their partner in every way possible. Breaking up for four times doesn't show any of those, especially since it happened in a less than one year. From my own experience, once the relationship is broken, it can maybe be saved, but never the same. The crack stays between you two.

A relationship can last as long as you and your partner have the will to keep it going! It doesn't matter how many times you have broken up or how long you two have been together. More importantly be cognizant about how you feel in the relationship and make sure that you are being honest with your own feelings towards your relationship! As long as you feel happy and emotionally supported in your relationship and your partner feels the same then you two have nothing to worry about! It's about the quality and not the quantity of time that you have been together with someone.
