I think you are really brave and a lovely human being for putting aside any negative feelings and reaching out to her! As far as being friends with her, I don’t think it’s necessarily weird but I would tread carefully with your husband and make sure it would be ok with him. It seems like it would really depend on the circumstances of their breakup, how long it’s been, etc.

you are not crazy.  you are a very confident and mature person for doing that.  more people should take your lead of openmindedness.  good for you.  i bet you felt so good releasing any of those residual negative feelings towards her.

Nope!  Not crazy at all.  Darling Husband and I are pretty close with his ex-gf.  She’s a great girl, but she just wasn’t right for Darling Husband.

Definetly not crazy! who cares if she is an ex of your husband you are both married now so it shouldnt matter at all! I would be friends with her too if I were you it’s not easy to make friends later on in life so if you mesh I say go for it!

I don’t think you’re crazy. It seems like you’ve gotten some of the weirdness out of the way. My question is — has your husband maintained a relationship with her at all post-breakup? How would he feel about you two being friends?

If you can be friends and now that it is completely over, why not but only if you both agree and because mutual friends. We are really good friends with my ex husband and he comes over and watches sports with my Darling Husband.  I could never do that with his ex because I know she still has feelings for him and it would open a whole can of worms,
