But it's not a universal rule. I have a cousin who is married to a guy she dated in hs (not her 'first bf' either for anyone wondering, i guess she dated about 3 guys in hs? he was #2?), broke up, dated other people (pretty seriously) then reconnected like 8 years later and got married.

Personally, I'd let it be. I come out of the relationship a different person than the person I was when I was in the relationship. Life's meant to be travelled forwards not backwards.
I have had friends who have gotten back with exes and they are still with them, and very happy Sometimes it's a case of " better the Devil you know than the Devil you don't"
I did get back together with an ex, twice with two different exes and honestly, it's never the same no matter how much you want it to be. It can go two ways, either worse, or better, but thats up for you to decide. But now if I could change anything I wouldn't go back to them, it was wasted time and wasted energy.
