Suppose a couple got divorced or separated, do you think they should unfriend their ex’s friends and relatives on Facebook and other media sites?

No, not if they are all comfortable & friendly and enjoy each other's company.

I guess it all depends on the individuals involved.

I think that is up to each person to decide. I am still friends with my x's nieces, we are FB friends and keep in touch. the rest of his family - no way.

Yes, I'm sure it depends on each individual's relationship with friends and family of the EX.

I have never unfriended any of my ex boyfriends, their friends, or their family. I am friends with all of their friends just like they are mine. I also don't remove photos that were taken of us. I have a past and I don't regret dating them. If my new boyfriend can't understand that I have had past relationships or is so immature that it is a problem then I don't want to date him anyway.

I can see that you have a very good point there and a good way of looking at this situation.

Yes, it can be a very uncomfortable situation, but it happens a lot and it is sad.

If both spouses have the same friend, they should both be able to keep that friend.

Yes, I guess it all depends on how important the friendship is.

I think if they were really good friend still they should stay friends on facebook.

I know that it all depends on the individuals involved. Some would stay friends and some would not.
