My ex husband and I get along amazing. I wouldn't go so far as saying we are friends but we're on each others fb and he calls with issues and I'm happy to help. I would NEVER go to him with issues between DH and I but I have talked to him about work stuff.
DH is also friends with him and will talk to him every so often about football or whatever. The X knows I tell DH (and yes I do) pretty much everything we talk about and respects that I won't talk to him about personal issues with DH and I.
Here's the thing. His (ex DH) family bashes him for it and says its not normal. The ex is station in Alabama which is where I am from and where my family lives. We have joint custody of our 2 kids but since its so far I have them most of the time. We (DH and I) are planning a trip this Xmas to see my family and obviously the X will be there. Dh loves my mom and she loves him and same goes with my X. So pretty much everyone gets along amazingly. It's great, mosty stress free and so good for the kids. Don't get me wrong, the bginning of our divorce was really rocky and it was uncomfortable telling him when I started dating, but we've managed to grow up and decide the kids need to NOT go through all the bullshit so many other kids go through.
But his family seems to always want to start drama. It pisses me off beyond belief. Apparently we're suppose to be at each others throats and DH and the X are suppose to despise each other. Why is it so unacceptable for ex's to have a good healthy relationship ESPECIALLY when they have 2 children together??? Hell we were all planning a Disney World trip fall of 2014 with Us, My family, the X and if he's got one whoever he's with. I don't understand why people have to thrive so much on drama and cause it where there isn't any...
