Despite our words of caution, Barbie and Ken have reunited for Valentine's Day.
After a 43-year romance, the pair broke up in 2004. Fans attributed the split to a variety of likely factors. Among the possible explanations? A suspicion that Ken found a new love interest: Ben. A website titled Ken & Ben fueled the belief.
In recent weeks, Ken used social networking sites like Twitter to regain Barbie's affection. Fans could also vote on whether the pair should get back together.
Never miss a local story.
Today, BarbieandKen.com boasts this message: "The epic romance continues! Barbie & Ken are together again!"
Alleged romantic fling Ben offered no comment about the rekindled romance, though we'll check his Twitter account throughout the day.
