Okay, so HeFlutter told his ex wife that we’re engaged last night. She was beyond okay with it – in fact, she was genuinely happy about it. She’s been championing for it for a while. Today, I got a text from her that said, “Congrats!” I feel like I’ve slipped into the Twilight Zone… O.o

It has taken us YEARS to get here. We’ve really only been okay the past 6 months…the first 3 years HeFlutter and I were together, she hated me. Then she got some help, moved on, and we’ve been okay since then. 🙂

I think that’s actually really nice of her if she is genuinely happy about it. Its not weird unless you make it weird. A friend of mine actually invited like 3-4 exes that he’s still friends with to his wedding… he and his new wife and all the exes are all friends.

Hey, its great you guys can get along!! There’s so many times this isn’t the case, its refreshing to see it happen now and again 🙂

Oh that isn’t typical. But it’s a good thing! It’s better than the alternative- the crazy meddling ex-wife. I’ve seen that play out before, it’s horrible! Were you guys wary of what her reaction would be?

@jennifer_espos: Right after HeFlutter and I started dating, she tried to *make* herself okay with it – invited me out to girl’s nights and stuff. Then she saw us together at his sister’s wedding in September and realized that she’d been deluding herself and that she wasn’t ready for it. She could accept me as a person on my own, but not as the person that was with her ex husband. She blew up at me at his sister’s wedding, and has spent the past 2 years getting herself back on track. I was worried it might trigger another episode, but she seems okay.

I think it’s awesome that she’s happy about it 🙂 It’s not too common.
The guy I dated before dating my Fiance is a groomsman in our wedding, since he and Fiance have been close for a long time. When Fiance and I started dating they stopped talking but have become friends again since then. When Fiance asked him if it would be too awkward, ex said it would be the least awkward thing happening in his life right now, lol. It’s nice when everyone realizes that things work out in the end 🙂

i called my ex and told him and he was genuinly happy for me, even said ‘where should we send wedding gift” uh- that was a little much so i suggested he donate to local animal shelter in our joint pets name.
