Ditto...we have had some rough years after the ugly divorce. But now with grown kids and grandkids we connect via facebook , like old friends each with loving relationships of our own. Plus it helps that I'm on the East Coast and he is on the West Coast
I believe it's critical that they do if there are children from the marriage. I tried to stay friends with my ex but instead she decided since I divorced her she would ensure she divorced my children from their father and she succeeded. Are we friends today? Nada
I guess depends on the personalities. I know some people who are divorced, but still act as if they were married together.

Marriages hit rough spots, sometimes long ones too. Put two separate individuals in an intimate relationship and arguments/fights are normal, eventually, even if the love is still strong. The frequency of arguments may...
Why is it that when couples break-up or divorce, suddenly they are mean, vindictive, and retaliatory towards each other.They once loved each other passionately and never would have imagined they would behave like that.
Modern days witness a lot of divorces. This is spreading like an epidemic over the globe. There are many divorces now-a-days even in the countries where family bond was traditionally very strong. It creates a lot...
