Dave:  So, did you see in the news that Eminem just got back together with his ex-wife, Kim?

Taylor:  I saw the headline, but I wasn’t aware of the significance.

Dave:  Yeah. It’s crazy, because he’s written so many songs talking about how he wants to kill her, how he wants to see her mutilated, dump her body in the river – and now they’re getting married again.

Taylor:  Strange.

Dave:  And a lot of people do that, right? They, you know…we’re together with somebody, we break up, we get back together, we break up.

Taylor:  Right.

Dave:  I don’t know. I go back and forth on just that idea. Once you break up with somebody, I mean, there’s a reason for it. That’s the end of it.

Taylor:  Well, you know, time clouds the decisions you made then, and those reasons might no longer be important to you, and, ah, or you may just want a little more danger in life.

Dave:  I like danger.

Discussion

Break-ups are difficult things. After spending so much time with someone, you suddenly find yourself alone, without a shoulder to lean on. Some people look forward to getting back into the dating scene, but they quickly find that it’s not as exciting and fun as it seems to be. It’s hard to find somebody you really connect with, which is why many people rekindle old flames.

Have you ever gotten back together with an ex?

When we are angry our mind is not stabil, and we just want to do anything to ride off our anger. So did Eminem at that time,its normal and happens with many people.
