For "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. And we're joined now by relationship expert and coach donna barnes here right now and I guess if you remarry your ex, you know what you're getting into but still a lot of risk. Nothing changes if nothing changes. I think if you're getting back together with somebody, there needs to be a very clear conversation about expectations and what is going to be different, because although timing has everything to do with a relationship too. Sometimes the love is there, but the situation, the commonality is not there and I think the longer time that passes before you get back together, if you rome and have had other experiences and nower's different coming back together and love is still there it can be better the second time around. The reason why, you have to keep in mind, you broke up but, donna, are there certain personalities more prone to remarrying. Co-dependence are probably more likely. Change is hard for people even when it's a positive change so you think -- if you have a hard time being alone. Any time you go through a breakup you naturally start going back to who was good. Who can I go back to and rekindle something with. Frequently it comes out of a neediness of not being alone and go back to someone. Understandable. Fair. I'd rather be by myself for all the right reasons instead of someone else for all the wrong reasons. Thank you very much! You said that. Who said that? A wise woman once said that. All right. All right. Thanks, donna.
