Question about meaning of phrase in text

Hi, this struck me as odd: "vous devriez peut-être considérer que la relation n'est pas n'est pas censée durer" - why not just "n'est pas censée durer"? Why the repetition?

Bonjour Carolize,

Chris is correct! Thank you for pointing this out! This typo has now been amended (the extra "n'est pas" has been removed).

Merci et bonne journée !

I think that's an error. You only need n'est pas once:

Vous devriez peut-être considérer que la relation n'est pas censée durer. -- You may want to consider that the relationship is not meant to last.
