What common relationship advice do you think is overrated or straight out bad?

To me it's "if it's an ex they should stay an ex".

I think this advice is over simplistic because it assumes all people breakup for the same reason.

Now obviously, if you break because your relationship is toxic (abuse, cheating, disrespect etc) then getting back with your ex is most likely a huge mistake.

But if the break up happened because of external issues and obstacles, for example it wasn't the right time for either of you to be in a relationship, or distance, work etc then I think going back with an ex isn't a bad idea if those obstacles get resolved.

I look around me and see a lot of friends who at some point broke up with their boyfriend because of uni /distance, etc but who eventually got back together and got engaged.

I mean, it worked out for Prince William and princess Kate Middleton.
