Why do people ask?

When people find out that my ex husband has a girlfriend, the first thing they ask is ,"Is she pretty?" Why do people ask that? I didn't think he divorced because i was ugly. Do you think they think i am ugly and that is why they ask that?

  • Umm, I have no idea why they would ask that?! Maybe they are honestly just curious about her looks?

  • I have a very simple answer for you-they are stupid, insensitive jerks.

  • sidesplittinglaughter NM the fact that she couldn't be doing too much better since he is your ex? Her looks have less to do with what is lacking between the ears? Hahaha

  • Some people unfortunately have diarrhea of the mouth, they just say whatever pops in their little noggin.

  • i think its out of curiosity, more than being ignorant or wanting to cause ill feelings. also, so many times when the ex gets a 'new one', the other ex is quick to judge the 'new one's' looks, thus judging them as a whole person, which is wrong.

  • maybe they that because if it were them, they might have an issue with their ex marrying someone hot. Some people get jealous about that, even though its their ex. i highly doubt they think you're ugly...

  • do women as well as men ask this?

    i can expect this from a man, but you would think women would have more class

  • I have no idea, I have never heard anyone ask someone that question. It is simply bizarre. In all honesty it would lead me to rethink my lifestyle and circle of friends. It sounds like you're surrounded by a bunch of idiots!
