I've heard it said that when you get out of a relationship, it will take you approximately half the time you were in the relationship to really get over it and honestly move on with your life.

What do you think about this theory? Total bullshit, or have you found it to be true?

Edit: After reading through various responses, I have to say that it's really interesting to me that almost everyone either says it took practically no time at all, or that it took much longer than the relationship actually lasted. Not too much middle ground. So to add to my question, what made the difference? Was it the circumstances of the actual break-up? Was it because of shared experiences? Or just an indescribable bond that held you to that person (or lack of such a bond)?
