In a celebrity news twist that no one saw coming, former Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey and his once estranged wife, Jillian Fink, are back together! The celebrity couple married in 1991, but filed for divorce after 24 years of marriage. Since November 2015 however, the couple have been spotted being very affectionate towards each other. According to Dempsey in a Evening Standard’s ES Magazine interview about the stalled celebrity divorce, “You have to work at everything. And you cannot do everything. Something has to be sacrificed.” A source from TMZ states the judge handling their case has issued an ultimatum on whether to proceed with the divorce or have it dismissed.

This is happy celebrity news! What are some things to consider before getting back together with your ex?

Cupid’s Advice:

Relationships come and go, but some former flames remain special in your heart. At times you may question whether it might be a good decision to give them another chance. Cupid is here to help you figure out whether you should get back with your ex:

1. Think it through: Before you rush to contact your ex, you should carefully consider the reasons why you want to see them again. Acknowledge if you’re in a good place mentally and emotionally before pursuing things once more. And make sure you remind yourself why the prior attempt at a relationship failed.

2. Talk about it: After you figure out whether or not you should try again with your ex, you can make a move to start the conversation. It’s important to get their input on the situation. Keep in mind that your ex may or may not feel the same way you do. You can’t force a relationship, so be honest and realistic when you talk to your ex about getting back together.

3. Move forward: Regardless of the outcome, you’ll need to move forward with whatever decision has been made. If your ex agrees that you both should get back together, then do so and try not to repeat what broke you up in the first place. If your ex doesn’t agree, then it’s time to move on and put your best foot forward to find the person who is best for you.
