We all remember the infamous "we were on a break" episode on Friends when Ross used his freedom a little too quickly for Rachel's liking. Clearly they were not on the same page with the definition of the term or the rules of their separation.
Typically when couples take a break, they need a little space to breathe in their relationship and decide on their own if their relationship is worth salvaging. Every couple has different meanings of what a break should entail, dating other people, not talking, talking but not spending time together, etc. Do you believe in taking a break in a relationship or do you think it simply prolongs the inevitable break up?
