Is it strange to be friends with exes?

My dh and I are friends with almost all of our exes, save for his ex-wife (she screwed his brother and left him with two kids, so can't really blame him there). Friends tell us that we're crazy for talking to exes and always talk about how we can't trust each other for doing that? One of my gfs told me "better lock him up because he's gonna go back and hit what he's already had before." Classy, I know, lol.

Anyway, are you friends with any of your exes? Do you think it's weird that we are friends with so many of ours?

 Everyone is different. You are friends with your ex. Nothing wrong with that

I speak to one but that's because we never slept together.. But then again I'm the kind that imagines all my exes died a tragic death and we can't speak of the dead

 I'm still really good friends with an ex of mine. We've known each other for over 20 yrs and were friends before we dated.

I don't talk or  am friends with any of them including my estranged husband who I have a 3 year old with.

 I just don't get how they don't understand that. I mean, okay, there've been a couple of bad breaks and those I probably won't ever talk to again, but with the rest, well, we were friends, dated, broke up, and stayed friends. These folks act like I should be out smashing headlights and slashing tires or something with all of them?

 LOL, the 2 bad breaks I had, I kind of feel that way about, too! If your guy was friends with his exes, would that bother you?

i think it's really mature and trusting of you to not mind the other taking to thier ex.

i couldn't do it..

 The ones I still talk to I was friends with before we dated, too. I think that makes it easier to be friends after it's over, too. Would you be upset if your SO stayed friends with their ex?

 Did you have bad breakups with yours?
