Are You OK with Your Ex and Current Person Being BFFs?
Honestly, I think it's a positive if it can happen, but I have a lot of friends who are NOT ok with this.
The first question my friend asks me is, "Why?" Why do we need our exes to be friends? I think it's a good question and my initial thought and response is no. We really don't need our exes being friends now, do we?
I mean, what do they talk about? Do they compare notes? They must, right? Ugh, on second thought, no, I don't think it's a good idea.
I am definitely impressed with families that can make this happen and have the ability to carry this out for the good of everyone involved. With that said, I think it depends on who is involved. I can tell you right now, my husband would want no part of this. There is no way he'd be buddies with a new boyfriend of mine. In fact, he would have all he could do to refrain from a nightmare encounter. I have to add that I would not want to be friends with a woman who my ex got involved with, but I would want to be friendly. There's a difference. For the record, even just the thought of all this makes me crazy! This isn't ever going to happen, so I know I thankfully don't have to worry about it.
