Why Do Broken magnets repel?

When a magnet breaks into two pieces, the two halves are rejected. The two ends of the center are south and north, they are different, so in theory they must attract, but in real life they are rejected. The magnets behave as they would have suffered an inverse pole (like this NS SN). Magnets repel each other when they are placed parallel to one another. They attract each other when placed end to end.
