What's that quote about relationships ending/marriages being lost?

I read (somewhere?) a quote by someone (an author? poet?) that when a relationship (marriage?) ends, a little language shared by the two is lost. I've googled all sorts of combinations of these words and cannot find it. Did I hallucinate this? Thanks!

Maybe Mother Night, Kurt Vonnegut, Nation of two - not sure which quote you mean specifically, but there are a few here: http://goodbooksincquotes.blogspot.com/2009/08/mother-night-kurt-vonnegut.html

Best answer: Are you perchance remembering this post from the blue?

(Also cf., this prior AskMe.)

Response by poster: 4 minutes. Is that a record? Thank you very much, those are both things I do recall now that I'm reading them again.
