 Lol. I was just curious.

My ex and I broke up in November. On Christmas, New Years, & Valentines we wished eachother happy holidays. But ever since he got this new girlfriend, we dont talk much. I dont think I will wish him happy anything, anymore,  unless he does first. Lol.

3 moms liked this

my friend buys her husband's ex wife a mother day's card and a plant every year for mother's day and has her husband give it to his ex wife.  She is the mother of one of his kids, my friend feels like since their kids are half siblings that she should get something from him as an acknowlegement that she is a mom....otherwise she might not get anything.

He used to. He'd even cry sometimes, and give me a card and a present. We have a Guardian ad litem for our daughter. She has interviewed him, and talked to him about how he gives me gifts for holidays, and he cries when he talks about it. But her report said that he doesn't provide any insight into why he cries.

 That's odd. Maybe some resentment for you two no longer being together?

It really depends on your relationship after the split.
I don't go out of my way to do it (call them up or give them a card) but if I see them on those particular days, I politely say Happy Father's Day, Happy Birthday, etc...but that's ONLY because we have a decent, non-threatening relationship. There are no concerns or jealous spouses.

When DH's XW still sent him Happy Birthday emails or calls, it was creepy, but that's because he didn't want the contact & she hadn't let go & was very untrustworthy.

My daughter is almost 7 and me and her father were split before she was born. We but a card for her to give the other on special occations and christmas we let her spend 10-20 dollars. Our relationship isn't what matters, it is hers with her father/mother
