  • Normal, no but doesn't necessarily make it WRONG if that's what you're asking. But it'd probably be very awkward for most couples.

  • well it's good that you are still really good friends with your baby's daddy... that's not very common... a friend of mine is best friends with his ex wife and he is now dating and she is married so it does work out.. maybe not for everyone... but if you lover is okay with it and it's nothing more then friendship then ther should be nothing wrong with it.

  • There is no right or wrong way to make a family as long as baby is loved, wanted and has all their needs met. There is no such thing as normal in relationships. If this is working for all of you and your child has a stable, loving home then keep it up!

  • What is normal, really?
    I think it is wonderful to have such a good friendly relationship with your child's father. Take that with being married to the one you love, I think your baby will be growing up in a very close, loving environment.

  • I think as long as you are first and foremost respectful to your husband's feelings and you remain respectful/ loyal to your marriage with him, then everything else is just hunky dory. And I agree what a nice fresh breath of air to see someone who has worked it all out nicely!

  • It's normal to have a best friend outside of your SO/DH, yes. Regardless if he was a previous partner or child's father. It is also normal to want to hang out with them on a platonic level. Note, that it's only normal on a platonic level.
