When Ross and Rachel broke up, it was one of the most memorable moments in “Friends.” Some think it was due to his past experiences with his ex-wife, Carol, who had a different idea of what a “break” was. This is one of the most popular sitcoms in TV history: “Friends.” It was made by David Crane and Marta Kauffman in the 1990s. A lot of people think that Friends is one of the best TV shows of all time, but there have been some complaints about how some characters were shown and how bad they were as role models. Ross Geller is one example (David Schwimmer).
Following the lives of six young adults in New York City, the show “Friends” looked at how they tried to balance their lives with their jobs, their friends, and their personal lives. It didn’t matter who the main characters were on “Friends.” The show focused more on Rachel and Ross and their roller-coaster romance, which was the focus of many episodes, including the show’s pilot and finale. Ross and Rachel’s “break” was the most memorable moment in their relationship, and the rest of the characters always made fun of them for having it.
There was a heated argument between Ross and Rachel after a failed anniversary party the next season, which was caused by Ross’ jealousy over Rachel’s friendship with her co-worker, Mark. There was a fight, and Rachel called for a “break.” A few hours later, Ross had sex with Chloe, a girl from the copy shop. The next morning, Rachel wanted to get back together with him, but after hearing what Ross did, she broke up with him for good. Friends fans have been debating whether Ross and Rachel were “on a break” and what a “break” meant for a long time. One theory says that Ross’ idea of a “break” was very different from Rachel’s because he had a more open “break” with his ex-wife, Carol (Jane Sibbett).
When Ross and Carol first met in college, they married. By the start of the show, Ross was still struggling to come to terms with the end of his marriage, as Carol fell in love with Susan, and he had to deal with that (Jessica Hecht). When Ross and his wife split up, he felt very insecure and paranoid in every relationship he had. This might have changed his idea of what a “break” was, too. A theory on Reddit says that Carol and Ross took a break at some point. It was a “break” with a lot of freedoms, in which both of them could be with other people. Ross thought the same thing about his breakup with Rachel and didn’t think it was wrong to have sex with Chloe the same night. Rachel, on the other hand, didn’t think that way.
The author says that Ross said that Carol was the only woman he had ever been with. In another episode, it was shown that he got drunk and slept with the woman who cleaned his and Chandler’s room in college (he believed it was Chandler, but he reminded him that it was him who did that). When Ross and Carol were apart, this might have happened. They could be with other people, but Ross kept thinking of Carol as the only one. Fans of Friends might not be happy with this theory, even though it explains why Ross did what he did that night. This might not be a good idea. I’m sure that each person and couple will have their own idea of what a “break” is. Ross and Rachel didn’t have the best communication at the time and were driven by raw emotions, which led them to make bad decisions later.
