We were on a break!

  Today, it's been two weeks since my girlfriend of many years and I decided to take a short break from each other. We'd been fighting a lot and felt like some space would help the situation. I found out today that, at some point during those two weeks, she decided to go and have sex with my (now ex) best friend. FML

That's what "a break" means. If you're on a break, it means you're not together. which means you and she can both see other people, unless that's expressly discussed prior and you both agree not to.

Wow that was scummy. I was in a similar situation where one of my ex's (I was dating her at the time) went and had sex with another guy I was beefing with. It's best to completely remove those two out your life forever and not look back. Don't allow any of them to even make eye contact with you. Life goes on easier when you clip toxic dead weight.

And?
if you went and slept with 20 women in that period of time, she couldn't say shit (obviously keep it safe and test it afterwards).

the only problem I see is the conflict of interest.

I want to agree, that it shouldn't matter. However, more than likely she would be mad. Either party will be mad at that. I personally feel a break would be do stuff for yourself, without needing anyone else, then go back to the relationship feeling better and more of yourself. But I fear most of these breaks happen because of another person, or wanting to be with another person, sadly.

you're completely missing the point. the point is that they planned on getting back together and she slept with his best friend. that would completely change the dynamic op and their best friend has also the dynamic between him and his gf. they go on a SHORT break and the first thing she does is smash his buddy, what do you think hanging out as a group would be like from then on? do you think he can trust her to be alone with him since she obviously didn't hesitate?

"Girlfriend of many years" Shit or get off the pot! She's moved on since you're still playing games. (I don't agree with hitting that close to home though)
