  • It makes you a better person in my eyes to want to keep in contact with them. When you were with your ex, you were a part of their lives as well. Just because two people break up doesn't mean that everyone else should get dumped. That is if the relationship you had with them was real.

  • No, not if you had a really good relationship with them. Just because you are still in contact, does not mean that you need to be in contact with your ex. Just be careful becaue they might run back to him and tell him everything that is going on in your life.

  • no I talk to my ex's family all the time. We were married and have a child together. I probably wouldnt be as close to them if we didnt have a child, but my relationship with them has nothing to do with him.

  • I developed close relationships with people in my exhusband's family while we were married, particularly his dad, his sister, and his aunt. They all made it very clear to me during the divorce that they still consider me family. We didn't stop loving each other because the marriage broke up. We still talk regularly and visit each other fairly often. He is remarried now and they also like his wife and have good relationships with her, too. It doesn't have to be an either-or kind of situation, there is always enough room in a family for another member and enough room in a heart for more love.

  • No. But if it bugs hubby, then I'd have to say no on keeping in touch....or tell hubby to get over it or compromise somehow.

  • Nope not at all. As long as you aren't asking about him or trying to reconnect with him, then you're good!
