      the court order prohibits that from happening

      No, not as a middle age adult.

      Still though, I would not like it.  However though, my husband is so much better than he could ever be.  That would give me warmth in the presence of his potential cold glare.

      I've had my ex wife over my house and have been to several social functions where she was present.

    Yep. I just looked the other way. Then ran into the ex husband in a bar one night. I just decided, okay, I'll be nice and friendly. I went over and said hello. He became irate, making snide remarks at me across the pool room. Then he walked over to my table, reached in his pocket, and pitched a penny at me.

      Sounds like a real nice guy.  But you're crying in your beer (NOT) that you let that one get away, eh?

    I have a few ex-boyfriends that I'm still friends with and I talk to my ex-husbands more often than I'd like to. 

    I have two daughters from two different ex-husbands.  Most of the time I have to track them down at holidays and the girls' birthdays to make sure they send cards, etc.  Also, when the girls' want to see there dads.  When my grandson was born, I paid the roundtrip airfare for my 3rd husband and his wife to come out from Texas to see the baby. It's really sad when you have to call the father of your child to remind him to send a birthday card or when you have to buy presents from "him" to put under the tree at Christmas, or when you have to hire a private detective to find him because his daughter wants to visit.

    I get more butterflies in my stomach thinking about meeting my husband's ex's.  His most recent one is just in the next state less than 50 miles away and when we go to visit his family out west, well the chances of meeting one of his ex-wives or ex-girlfriends are excellent.  Also, he keeps in touch because he has children with some of these women... children for whom I'm paying his child support.

    It's easy to drop an ex and never have to see or hear from them again, but once you have children, everything gets complicated.

    It took a few years, but my "ex" and I are best friends and hang out regularly.  (And that's after a pretty, pretty, nasty divorce.)  We pretty much have an "Old Christine" type of thing going - minus "New Christine".

    I ran into my ex at the mall, we had a really harsh breakup after 2 years of being together, that was about 4 or 5 months ago. We talked for a while, she kept complimenting on how i look and what not. I told her about my new job, asked her about hers, it was a really cool connection, until her new boyfriend came over. Most of me was asking-WTF you went this low after me?- I know her life isn't as easy as it was before, when she lived with me, and I know I miss her, I was getting ready to pop the question and I know she would have said yes, but things just didn't work out. It is what it is though.
