My high school ex boyfriend was at the wedding with his girlfriend. We even did a silly dance from our teens together. One of my other exes was informally invited but couldn’t afford the flights so congratulated us from afar.

One of DH’s exes came to the evening reception of our wedding with her fiance. 

The only one of our combined serious exes who didn’t congratulate us was my somewhat psychotic ex, but then he was a prat!

No, but recently an exe’s mom friended me on facebook…lord knows why.  She’s been liking all of my engagement stuff.  I don’t know why I accepted…curiosity I suppose.

That ex is already married, for about a year or two.  Our families are close.  They didn’t let me know he was getting married but they told my family who of course told me.

Weird but who cares?! 🙂

One of my highschool boyfriends (EX1) posted on my Facebook wall, but the other (EX2) didn’t congratulate me at all. EX2 just got married for the second time, himself, and I think his wife has asked him to sever ties with me (we talked/texted up until they got together). Oh well, no big deal.

  • Wedding: September 2012

actually a few did, i’m on fairly good terms with most of my exs, one of them we’ve remained friends it wasn’t a bad breakup really so i expected that he’d be happy for me, another we had kinda a bad breakup but since then we’ve actually been able to work on our friendship and he’s really changed a lot so i did somewhat expect him to be happy for me too, but the one that got me is my most recent ex from a few years ago, we did not end on very good terms and he was sooo dramatic about everything, for months and months after we broke up he would post these sad poems on facebook and some got downright nasty calling me names and wotnot and i honestly did nothing to deserve it. even after me and Fiance got together this guy was still posting crap about me and i was just like really think it’s time to let it go but anywho, we’ve talked occasionally since then and he did apologize to me for all the drama and crap, but we still don’t talk often and i hadn’t heard from him in months but the other day i actually unexpectedly got an email from him that was very nice and saying congratulations and that he knows we have our past and he has regrets about how he behaved but that he cares about me and wants me to be happy and wishes us his best in our future together. it really touched my heart that he was decent enough to send that cause i know if one of my ex was getting married(i am the first to marry out of my past relationships) i’d do the same for them cause honestly i have no bad feelings towards any of them and hope all of them can find a good relationship

I have one ex, and he did actually message me on facebook to congratulate me on my engagement, which I thought was nice. We broke up more than 9 years ago, so even though we don’t talk much anymore, I’m always happy to hear that he’s doing well. Our relationship didn’t end on great terms, but then again, we were in high school.

Nope. Two of my exes I only dated for a few months each, so we didn’t stay in touch at all. I dated one ex for about a year, but our relationship didn’t end well, so we don’t stay in touch either.

When I posted on FB engaged, an ex posted that he liked it. I thought that was a nice gesture, however we dated in HSchool, so we dated when I was 16-17, now we are in our early 30’s. We have not seen eachother in person for 10 years.

My Ex-H wants to come to the wedding. Which my kids would love, but the Fiance would not. I’ve tried to stay friendly with the ex for the kids, and he’s not an incredibly horrible person or anything- he has been supportive of us being engaged and he’s very protective of me to this day, even though I’m the one wanted the divorce. But the Fiance isn’t comfortable with it, and I respect that. Plus, we are planning on having a very small, intimate wedding with family only. So I will have to figure out a way to break that to him somehow :p I’m not in contact with any of my other exess, thankfully!

My ex fiancée who I was with for 6 years (high school sweetheart) texted congrats when we got engaged and also texted me the day after the wedding to say I looked beautiful (saw guest photos on fb) and that he wishes me only the best. Also that he loves me. he tells me he loves me once in awhile but I know he just means he cares about me and that he holds me dear. We have both moved on.
