  • I have a few exes on Facebook. The ones I still get along with. There are a few I would never consider. I don't think it matters if you are married or not. But I know a lot of other people disagree and think you have to cut off all contact with all exes...I think it's an age thing, I am 37 and really don't have any patience for a man who would tell me who I can and can't be friends with. But that's just me lol.

  • it depends on how your husband feels about it. it also depends on when you dated them, and why they are friending you.
    if its someone you had a serious relationship with not long before you met your DH or whatever who may still have feelings you and your DH doesnt want you to accept them, then obviously no.. but if its someone you dated a while ago and theres no feelings left and your DH doesnt care, then yeah its just a friend request.

  • i have five exes on FB, and dh knows all about them. he trusts that its just social (it is), and its not standing in the way of our relationship. what's the big deal? we're pretty open with our pasts; no stone's been left unturned, y'know? he also knows that it ends on FB..its not like i'm making plans to see any of them, or rehashing old days hoping to renew some flame. that's crazy talk! we trust each other. end of story.
