  • What? There's a number for it now? You give or you'll be given a second chance if you still love each other and willing to adjust from your mistakes/bad memories.. Throw it all away to start fresh.. if it didn't worked out again then (HOUSTON THEY HAVE A PROBLEM).. same like mistake.. 1st time its a stupid mistake or decision, 2nd time is already a choice.. I'm not sure if you'll stay as friends.. but for me.. grow separately, don't hold each others opportunity to mature and have a life..

    1 or 2

  • Shit happens, someone overreacts, someone went too far... Everyone deserves a second chance. If you learn from mistakes. I voted 2.

  • This is a question which should lie with the couple... No one else. If they want to get back together again, so be it.

  • If you break up during a fight, you two are not mature enough to be in a relationship, so I think breaking up for good is for the best.

  • I'm sure many couples that "make it" may have had a split in there somewhere.

    But in MY experience I have broken up and gotten back together with my two past boyfriends (one doesn't really count, it was high school) but anyway... both times we ended up splitting for good for the exact same reasons as the first split.

  • I think after any break up they should just stop being around each other altogether.

  • I think personally that we can meet the right person but just the timing is wrong. I think though only a second chance is sufficient, and that if you have to try more than that, its more so holding onto something that isn't there.

  • It really depends why you're breaking, like if one if you cheated then it's probably never a good idea to get back together but if it's something less serious that you can work through then I'd say 2-3 times.
