    Like the men and women of the relationship!

    I want you to separate properly if you break up!

    Thanks for the workaround.

    This behaviour has produced a big issue lately because we released a version of our video game with things working wrongly: we thought a broken prefab would be fully broken, but it was not. So a part of the game was acting very weird till a client report the issue!
