I don’t want them back, our relationships ended for a reason and I’m about to marry my dream man, but damn this is getting ridiculous!! Two of my ex-boyfriends, both of which were serious relationships, have gotten married in the past 6 weeks. 6 weeks!! One of them is actually my ex-fiancee and more than anything seeing him get married gives me a “thank god I never went through with it” sense of relief. I’m still facebook friends with the other one and am quite happy for him, save for the fact that I never could stand the woman he just married (she was always really rude to me when we were dating. Now I see why…)
No real reason for this post, just thought facebook wouldn’t be the appropriate forum for a number of reasons and felt the need to….well, I don’t know. Not vent, because I’m not upset or anything, just…unload, I guess.

Yeah, it is always a weird feeling when I hear about how my ex boyfriends lives ended up. My very first boyfriend went into the military after highschool and just married some woman because he was lonely. Now he is in a marriage he wants to get out of. And she has like 3 kids….
It really doesn’t matter to me, but it is def. weird to hear about.

I’ll go. My ex just got married… the day after me. It was a bit weird to find out, to say the least… but more power to him! he seems happy.
But yeah, it’s weird.

It’s the whole “both of them in 6 weeks” thing. I don’t keep in touch with my other long term boyfriend, if I did, I’d probably find out he’s getting married next month or something.
Thank goodness I’m so blissfully happy with my Fiance and can’t WAIT to marry him, otherwise instead of just being super weird, this would royally suck!

Seriouslllllyyyy. But I do get some satisfaction in knowing that they don’t have fulfilling careers and wonder how they are going to pay for it…bad media, I know.

It would be so strange if I found out that my ex was getting married. This is mainly because the last I knew, he either broke up with or was dumped by the girlfriend he had after me. I did check his social sites here and there after we broke up, and he seemed very desperate and lonely. I don’t think I could trust that it was because he actually wanted to marry the girl, at least not right now. In years, yes, perhaps it wouldn’t be quite so weird. I’d probably just be glad that it wasn’t me.

Only one of my ex’s from high school has gotten married, and he really deserves happiness. He was always a super nice guy, we broke up because we decided we wanted to be friends instead of feeling like we had to kiss all the time. Haha
However, the ex that I broke up with before I started dating my Fiance was a trip. Not a nice guy at all. He was always making very sexist and racist jokes as well (hmm…wonder why I dumped him…). He’s now dating a beautiful african american doctor. I’m not sure how that happened.

I found out my first love got married w/in the past year. I couldn’t stop laughing. I think because he was SUCH a nerd when we dated and I saw pictures of the girl who married him and I was like “Why would she do that?!”. That’s so mean, but it’s the truth.

I know what you mean. When I heard about one of my past boyfriends getting engaged (Wasn’t a great relationship, but we dated a year and a half), I also had a feeling of relief lol.

My ex proposed to his now wife on my birthday. Weird feeling 🙂 It is funny to see exes get married, especially because we so often freeze people in time where we left them, I think.

If it makes you feel any better, two of my exes got married within ONE WEEK of each other this past August.

This happened to me a few years ago. I am not joking when I say 5, yes 5, ex’s got married within a few months of each other. A few were serious a few were really short, but the crazy thing is, they all married the very next girl they dated after me. Talk about a complex. Although I waited a long time, I am thrilled to be with the man I always knew I wanted, and he wants me (and let’s me know every day).

Yeah I google/facebook stalked all my exes and found out that every single one of them is married too! So weird!

I think this is so, so true.
@tksjewelry: I totally feel the same way!! I had also discussed marriage with both of them (I was engaged to one of them), so it’s weird to see them finally take the plunge with someone else.
At the end of the day though, looking at my dear Fiance, I think I totally scored the “big” prize. 🙂
