    • I received a friend request from my ex who I dated 20 years ago.  Not my high school sweetheart, I met him after hs but he was my first true love and first true boyfriend.  Anyways, I haven’t talked to him since maybe 2003, we lost touch.  I would love to see how he’s doing but on the other hand, I know my hubby would NOT be happy to hear this at all.  My husband is not on FB and thinks it’s dumb anyways.

    • I will not accept it.  There must  be a reason why he is now an X.

    • I’m still friends with most of my ex boyfriends and I think I’m friends with a couple of them on facebook.  Hubby knows that and seems ok with it.  He would not be ok with it if I really started chatting with them a lot.

    • Depends on the who’s......... I’m confident in my marriage and wouldn’t be tempted. But if it was just a silly crush from way back then why not!

    • Probally not only because they are an x for a reason. If it was someone that I dated a few times maybe...probally. My husband would be fine with it. But I wouldnt ask. If I choose to except its up to me about my friends but my husband knows I never would do anything that I wouldnt want done to me. Mark is the love of my life and my marriage is a gift so anyone I friend on fb would never hurt that.

    • I would accept it giving them a firm understanding that it is for friendship ONLY!!! I do have relationship with some of my ex’s including my ex-hubby after so many years of he and I NOT being cordial and always negative towards one another God has truly worked it out and he and I can chat and enjoy conversation without bickering or ill feelings towards the other. I also have some ex-boyfirends I still communicate with on ocassion but nothing of a regular basis so hubby knows of it and is not and has no reason to be threaten by them.happy

    • I would add them as a friend just to catch up, but if he started saying things that he shouldnt, I would de-friend him after telling him Im not interested in anything except a friendship.

    • If I wasnted to then I would.  My husband and I have our own fb accounts and use each others from time to time.  So we have nothing to hide from what’s posted on facebook.

    • Although, this may begin purely “platonic“, there are red flags warning about future temptations, especially if this had been a serious relationship.  

      If we reverse this situation and it’s your husband’s ex-girlfriend requesting to be friends with him on Facebook, would you be cool with it or would you be upset?  In all honesty, I would not be happy and I would question the ex-girlfriend’s motives.

    • Nope, I wouldn’t accept the friend request, if I was on FB. As hbrose says, probably best NOT to go there. And as Brimstone said, an X is an X for a reason.

    • I dont really see an issue with it...C‘mon it’s Facebook...you are online, not running off meeting in secret. I am friends with exboyfriends, old Highschool sweethearts even my exhusband and his family. (we have both remarried) Its great to catch up and see the photos of their wives and kids and laugh at who got fat and lost all his hair (grinning wickedly)tongue out
