The recent Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber news has got me thinking. Do you think it’s possible for two people to break up in bad circumstances and then reunite when they’re older and have ‘matured’? Have any of you ever done that? How did it work out?

Me and my now husband got back after a year and a half long break up. We thought the break up was the total end but we got back in contact and realised we had both matured and still loved each other and now we've been together for 7 years straight and got married this year. I think getting back with an ex can work, but it is rare. If your relationship ended due to serious things such as abuse or cheating then no, I wouldn't ever recommend giving the relationship another shot but if the relationship ended because of a silly reason, because you were too busy back then for a relationship or because you were too young and naive in the past, then yeah - it could work in the future if you have both matured and want to give it a shot.

Yeah of course it can work, time and circumstances change people

Yeah it can work out. Often when people have a nasty break up (except when it's dangerous) the emotions are high, you're angry and just say hurtful words which are really empty. Over time all that dies down and you look at the situation with a new perspective and can really appreciate each other again and have a successful relationship.
