The Mandatory Bennifer Guide to Getting Back Together With an Old Ex (And Not Screwing It Up For All to See)

You’ve probably heard by now that Bennifer is back. Yes, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, the celebrity power couple that got engaged in 2002 but broke up in 2004 before tying the knot, are back together and better than ever. Paparazzi have been stalking the Gigli stars trying to get a glimpse of their moony-eyed glances and PDA-packed rendezvous.

Seeing how happy these two apparently appear to be now that they’ve reunited might inspire you to get back with a former flame, too. But before you do, prepare yourself: you can’t just jump right back into bed with the person who broke your heart. Well, actually, you could, but we don’t advise it. Instead, consult this Mandatory Bennifer Guide to Getting Back Together With an Old Ex (And Not Screwing It Up For All to See), then proceed with caution.
