    We broke up many times during/in our three year relationship.

    We broke up many times during/in our three year relationship.

    Are both useable in this context if the relationship ended several years ago?

    Thank you.

    needs a hyphen
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
