My ex was one of my best friends and also my class fellow from 5th grade to 8th grade. We had amazing understanding and he really supported me when I had a rough patch in my late teens. We had planned to get married but things didn't work out so we went our separate ways. I got married and have kids and a life which I love. Got in touch with my ex after 6 years. So no we're not having an affair but we did talk like really good old friends. After all we were best friends before we started dating. He's in a serious relationship and is planning to get married soon. So we talk and chat and enjoy each other's company. Is that wrong? One of our common friends found out about this and got pissed at me that what I'm doing is wrong. She told me he's a guy and they're usually blockheads. I should be more sensible.
I'm in a good place in my life and I know he is too. Unlike a lot of my fake and selfish friends, I know he's a really good and sincere one. Sure we had a thing but now we've moved on in our lives. Is it wrong to remain friends with your ex?

As long as his fiance' & your husb. don't mind, then I see no reason why you can't continue your friendship. I have a few male friends who I love like brothers. It is very possible for men & women to be JUST friends.

I don't think it is wrong. I would include your husband and your friends fiance' in the friendship. It should be friendship betwwen both couples at this point. You are now a part of a couple and should be in everything as one- not seperate.
