  • Yes, I am friends with my ex husband and his wife. Because we didn't divorce each because we weren't friends, we just weren't good at being married to each other.

  • I am friends with an ex BF from about 8 years ago. We dated for about a year & a helf. We were close. I still talk to his mom. We do not talk often, but we occasionally catch up on FB. He has a live in GF, I am engaged to someone else. We are stictly platonic. I am "friendly" with my XH.

  • I'm friends with a few of my exBFs. We were friends before we dated , the romances just didn't work out. My DH knows them and we all get along. My DH also has friends who he dated at some time.

  • Yes I am. My ex-husband & I were friends before we married, but the romance part didnt work out. He was also an excellent step-father to my daughter while she was growing up. They too are still close. I'm still friends with an ex BF whom I spent 9 yrs with. we just grew apart, but parted as friends. Both of these gentlemen are friends with my husband as well. I think it speaks volumes about a persons character, when they & their ex or ex's remain friends years after they've split up.

  • no, but only bcause I moved away and couldn't think of any reason to stay in touch, some people are ex's for good reasons.

  • No. Because I may forgive, but that doesn't mean I'm foolish enough to keep someone who lies and manipulates (etc) in my life.

    I'd honestly give anything to erase those three years from my life completely.... But I guess I have to suffice with him being out of the picture - or as out of the picture as he can be when he's dating my husband's cousin....

  • No because we broke up for a reason, which for two of my ex's was lying and hiding things.

  • Yup. My ex husband and I are friends. We were friends before we got married and we should have stayed friends. We are both happier with our new partners. If we did not have a son together though we would not have kept in contact as I don't keep in contact with any other ex's.

  • My ex and I get along very well and his new wife likes me now that they are married (they were together for 6 years before they got married and I think she felt threatened that we got along, as if I would ever want him back. But little did she know, there was no way in hell I would ever want him back LOL). We get along, but I wouldn't call us "friends"
