Halfway in between. They can withdraw with consent of everyone else. No state lives in a vacuum, so their actions affect others. Because of this, any secession has to take into account these realities.
Obviously, our country was founded by breaking away from another country, so I never want to categorically say they can never unilaterally secede. But it has to be the gravest of circumstances that can't be remedied through some other means.
I think there might be circumstances where secession might be justifiable, but they'd have to be pretty dire.
