Several things cause a rod to "pull apart".
Excessive RPM's
Too much oil in the pan.
Cylinders with improper clearance.
Cylinders too thin ie: an old block at +060. This will cause the cyl to flex and gauld the piston.

These are just a few common things...

As always there are other circumstances and elements involved.
