Default spokes

Are breaking spokes common? I guess what I am asking,do we break them from the torque or bumps etc. our wieght?? I am waiting on the brown truck to deliver but am still doing research. I have all ready wired my spokes together where they cross on the back wheel, I have yet to do the front. My donor bike is a cheap (but new) Huffy Cranbrook beach cruiser. I am pretty sure it has the thin spokes. What may I expect? I will be only riding on smooth surface and weigh 190lbs. Advice anyone?Thanks Jim
