It’s an eternal relationship debate: do breaks work?

Yesterday it was reported that Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney have ended their engagement. Then Gaga posted this message on Instagram that seems to leave open the possibility for reconciliation:

I never used to believe that people who say “we’re on a break” ever end up un-breaking. But I might be full of sh-t because my parents were divorced for over 10 years and my mother married someone else in between, but still eventually got back together.

Is it a celebrity trend though? This “break”?

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced they would be divorcing last year. They’ve yet to file paperwork and there’s speculation that they might be working to get back together.

Jillian Fink actually filed for divorce from Patrick Dempsey in January 2015. They called off the divorce a year later.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth ended their engagement three years ago. Last Christmas they got back together.

Gaga and Taylor have broken up before. So they have experience with breaking and un-breaking. I think though that the key to unbreaking is being honest about what happened during the break. Or maybe before the break.
