Is it weird to be friends with your exes?

I'm friends with all of my exes and my husband is friends with all of his, but our friends think that's weird and that it's not possible to be friends with your exes after you've been down that romantic road together.

Do you think it's weird to be friends with your exes?

I'm still friends with several of my exes.  To be fair, these were mostly men that I dated when I was either in hs or college and we were friends before we started dating, so it doesn't feel weird for me at all.  I think I have about four or five exes as my active fb friends.

No, not weird at all. I am friends with most of mine. Actually, the one before my dd's dad is now my best friend. Our relationship is better now than it was when we were together as a couple.

I don't think it's weird. My exes are good people, and I continue to have many still in my life. I've never dated someone that I couldn't stand later.

I don't. All of my close male friends are exs except for one. We got along great but a relationship just didn't work out. 

Of course I also have exs that I would like to run over with a car so I would think it's weird if someone was friends with ALL of their exs because somewhere in there there has to be at least one that you were glad to get rid of (or that was glad to get rid of you).

I am friends with my ex and his wife. They even spend a week with them last Summer in Spain (where they live). My husband is friends with two of his exes and their husbands do not like it.

 I'm only friends with one of my exes, but it's kind of special circumstances. I had known him for 5 years prior, he's my brother's best friend, we both consider him a brother and part of the family. We were each others first, first love, and first real relationship. We mutually fell out of love with each other but still love and care for each other, if that makes sense.

my hubs is best friends with his sons mother, so much so that she made him her daughters godfather. I am also very good friends with her as well and yes everyone thinks it is very very weird lol! i however do not think it is because it provided a healthier environmnet for ss when he was a younger child

Not weird at all for me.
I'm still friends with a few of mine. The ones that I'm not friends with have wives that dislike the idea of our post relationship friendship.
