say the relationship is over, whether it was a happy ending or not, should you also end the connection between the people who became a part of your lives? just wondering. :)

I think you could. if you're in good terms with your ex but if not it's not advisable to go out with your ex's parents without him..

i think we can't just cut off the communication towards our ex's relatives or family after the breakup, right? but its hard not to. my younger brother's ex is my youngest god mother and i think she felt its awkward to be around us since my younger brother already have a new gf. but anyway, ideally the connection shouldn't be cut off...but we can't help it

guess it depends on how you break up. if you break up friends it shouldn't be to bad talking to friends and family. but unless there is a reason yoiu don't want to talk to them (like it hurts to much or they blame you for something happening) there's no reason not to stay in contact.

I don't know. In my case, I try till end to patch up so that the relationship does not break. But when inspite of all efforts, the relationship still breaks, then I do not feel like being friendly afterwards and avoid all contacts with that person. But in case I come in face to face contact, then I keep myself calm and try to act normal.

with that i'd assume that you didn't keep the relationship you had with your ex's friends/relatives. hmm, with a very protective wife, it's totally understandable. -_- thanks for your thoughts and your time, i appreciate it really. :) happy mylotting.

I'm still friends with my ex's and the family. In fact I get on really well with my ex's parents. Yes I think people should stay friends if they liked each other in the first place. This is if no one gets hurt along the way, I admire people that can put the pass behind and move on without hard feelings. I did it and I feel good about it, it's also better for the kids sake and also to feel at peace in our own mind.

I think I can't still be friends with my ex! For me, eve we ended, I still have kind special feeling for ex, so I kind can't stand watch he with another women kiss just infornt of me. I can bless for him, but I can't still be friends with he. Maybe far from each other is the best way to the exs. Maybe someday you found you still feeling for ex, it's kind dangerous to live still. Maybe just for me, I can't let the feeling change love for friends!

oh i don't have an ex-boyfriend really, i find comfort in not having one yet. haha. uhm, hm. well, i feel bad about how your relationship turned out with this man, i hope that in time, your heart will mend. so i think i'll take your answer as, no, you wouldn't want to have anything to do with your ex, with everything else that was involved with both of you within the relationship... right? thanks for your time, and your thoughts, wish i could hear from you soon. happy mylotting. :
