It hasn't happened for me but it has for friends of mine, who have gone on to have very long lasting relationships that are still going with former exes. Of course it depends on why you broke up in the first place but if you both truly loved each other and still did at the time of the break up then it is possible that you may come back to that person in the future.
The only way that you will be able to make the relationship work though, is if you both look at the past relationship and both realize how you contributed to the broken relationship and the steps you must take in order to prevent the same bad behaviour from occuring again. Perhaps you realized that you took each other for granted or were just too pushy or you need to work on communication. Once you have acknowledged where you went wrong in the past, you have to be willinging to forgive and forget, meaning the second time around has to be started fresh just like it was the first time you ever dated and start over from scratch with a better understanding of your own mistakes. This means that you can't keep bringing up the problems of the past but only focus on the present and future.1
