Spokes don't last forever and I don't know why they break, but I can tell you that with my usual setup and ride style - 36 spoke wheels built by myself, ACI double butted spokes, Shimano or Campagnolo hubs, Mavic or Weinmann rims, 70kg rider weight, avoid potholes, lift off the saddle at bumps - I've never broke a spoke in more than 50000kms.
