Mom and I was just discussing this and I wanna know what you guys think.
I believe that that, a person should be allowed to still talk to their ex unless they're lunatics. You know what I mean? Let's take a Scenario of Josh and Sally.
Josh and Sally dated from age 25 - 30. They break up because they just aren't good as a couple but agrees to be friends because they are better friends than a couple. Let's say at age 35, Josh finds a girl named Brooke.
If Brook says "You have to stop talking to Sally if you want to continue this relationship." Should Josh stop talking to Sally?
I say no because unless it was a nasty break-up and Sally was the crazy one; I see no problem of them talking to each other. What you are essentially saying is "Don't date your friends." I just don't think a potentially good friendship should be immediately abolished after break-up. Some people are great friends but aren't great as a couple. To me, there isn't really a good reason to say no unless their ex is crazy.
If you have a problem with it, with no reason, then you're saying "I don't want her talking to my boyfriend because she used to have him." Yes, people are exes for a reason, but the reason isn't always so serious that the friendship afterwards needs to be extinguished.
What do you guys think?
