would you make friends with an ex-Sister in law?

ok, I just met my brother in law's ex-wife (my husband's brother's ex...)
They were divorced before I even met my husband.
But I really like her and we have a lot in common. Would it be weird to make friends with her?

  • Nope. There's nothing wrong with that.

  • No. There's nothing wrong with that. You can't live your life to suit your brother in law.

  • I said no, but that was no, there's nothing wrong with it. Not no I wouldn't be friend's with her. I'm not gonna delete to re post. You lose 5 damn points for that!

  • My best friend is my former sis-in-law. I even sided with her during the separation and divorce. Definitely did not make my brother-in-law happy, which made me even happier because I do not like him at all.

  • If there's no issues with it, I don't see a problem with it.

    Would I do it with mine? Hell-effing no. I used to be friends w/ my first SIL, but not after the crap she pulled on my brother after they divorced (it was her idea to divorce). And most definitely not my 2nd SIL (his second wife) after abandoning her son, my nephew. If anything, I'd like to punch her lights out.
