  • I wouldn't get too close with just a girlfriend, it may not last. Once he marries then it is great if you can be friends.

  • Polite and pleasant, best friends, no. I believe everyone should be polite at the very least to each other no matter what.

  • There is no reason for you to have a "friendship" with her,she is just a supporting player. Parenting decisions need to be made by the parents. (I am a bio mom and a step mom, btw). Be civil and friendly, the kids will see that you have a good attitude toward her. I am friendly with my exes fiance, but we don't have a relationship.

  • Why not be friends? Just b/c she is dating your ex doesn't mean that the 2 of you might have something in common and become great friends... Dont let her status stop you from befriending her. I get along with my ex's girlfriend better than I do with him...
