  • I think it depends on the circumstances involving the split and the age of the people. Maturity has a lot to do with everything.

  • My DH and I was married at 17yrs old. A year later we had a child. A year after that we divorced. So, our child was 1 yr old and we had been married for basically 2 yrs. We loved each other but we were young. 5 yrs later we got back together and married. We have been married for 12 yrs now and very happy. We also had one more child in the process. So yes it happens and yes it can work.

  • Of course they can. Depends on the people and the circumstances. Both people need to be on the same page as far as working on the relationship.

  • It happened to me. I divorced my husband. He got himself together, quit drinking, fixed his priorities and won me back after a long chase. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen, I'm proof positive of that! We're very happy now. I have the husband of my dreams and my kids have the father they always deserved. Good luck!!!

  • I would say absolutey. People change, situations change. Sometimes you don't know what you had until its gone right? I wouldn't say go back into the same situation or empty promises. Follow your heart...it is usually right.
