Do ex partners are not allowed to be a friend to her ex partner's friends? Is talking with her/him means you are being destroying the trust and friendship? Should the ex partner will be offended to it?

Hi mauricel, It is a shame that this is sometimes the way it is. If your ex-parner was friends with these people before you two became involved, then I think it would be better not to continue the relationship with his/her friends. But, of course that would be up to you and the friends whether they want to remain friends with you. However, If you do this, you will probably hear about his new life with someone else. If this wouldn't bother you, then go for it.

Thanks, hearing news about his/her life with someone else may bother but as long as your can handle yourself carefully in that situation is out of the context of friendship. But bothers me is that the ex is thinking that the girl and the friend is betraying the ex partner. Which is definitely not true. Would she go on and continue the friendship?

Hi mauricel, For me as the ex-partner who wants to remain friends, it woud just be getldting to complicated. I would just move on and find a new set of friends. When you end a relationship sometimes your have to leave old friend behind with it.
