If one of you wants to stay wherever you are living and the other agrees to move out, you can usually have the lease rewritten under the name of the one staying. Did that when I realized my now ex-fiance was a waste of time and energy. He moved out, I kept the place. (This works best when he's done something incredibly stupid that you can hold over his head to motivate him to get lost.)

why not just have herself taken off the lease. last time that happened to me i just walked into the estate agent and said i moved out and take me off the lease. was done in about 30 min. if your partener or the ex is still there they cant keep you on the lease surely

If you draw a line down the middle, make sure you get the half with the bathroom. Oh and put alarms and bells on it. Sarcasm and humor are great for stress relief :)

olivejuice001 is absolutely right. Most landlords would rather rewrite a lease than have potentially volatile tenants. It's usually less hassle from his/her perspective to lose one of you than to lose both of you. Have a chat with your ex about whether he wants to keep the apartment or if he'd rather leave and let you keep it (if either of you can afford it alone). In any case, make sure that the remaining person has all the keys to the place or future FMLs are inevitable.
