Why Do Broken magnets repel?

When a magnet breaks into two pieces, the two halves may be repelled. The two ends of the center are south and north, but it's not always on the side you assume. If the magnet has an axial field (pointing through the flat face), then the North and South sides will face the same polarity when it breaks, rather than the opposite polarity.
