Is this a weird relationship?

 My dad and I were talking yesterday and he told me my little brother's wife went to a concert with her ex-mil.

Now, here's a little back story - his wife was married for 2 or 3 years and had a baby with a really bad guy. SHe said the marriage was great at first, but he began dealing/using drugs and became abusive. Finally he got caught, went to prison, and she divorced him. A couple years later, she is married to my brother. Anyway, she has a relationship with her former in-laws now and apparently her ex-mil and her hang out.

Also, her ex-dh gets out of prison fairly soon....

Do you think that her trying to maintain a relationship with her former in laws is weird?

I don't think it's weird.  Does it bother your brother?

 I don't think so -and I don't think it's weird at all! But my dad is up in arms over it. My thoughts are that his wife has their grandchild, they are always going to have some kind of relationship. It's pretty mature that everyone can hang out together, kwim?

And I don't think it bothers my brother at all--jealousy isn't really in his nature!

It may be a little odd, but I don't really see a huge issue.

If they can get along, I say its great!
Both my ex MIL's hate me for "putting their baby in jail". I wish they could be more mature, because then they could have more of a relationship with their grandson.

 I dont think it's weird. I think it is good for the baby.

I don't think it's weird. Like you said, they will always have something in common.

No. I was never married before, but I still talk to the family members of some of my exes.

I agree with this.
