He Still Talks to his Ex Wife

Visitor's Question from a 31-40 year old Female
I have been dating my boyfriend for about a year and a half. We love each other. Can you help me understand why he and his ex-wife (who is remarried and has kids), still e-mail each other? They have been divorced for 7 years. No kids, either. I asked him why and he said that, she is part of his past and they dont have to be enemies. He also said there is nothing going on, and he is over her.

I just dont get it. Should'nt she get a life? Should I be angry? Im more confused and hurt. Why do you think this is happening? Is it odd? Please help, Thank you for your time...

RomanceClass.com Advice
Do you honestly believe that all relationships must end in hate? That's a really bad sign. If two people are in a relationship it should be because they care about each other. Just because you can't live together does not mean you must suddenly hate each other. She does have a life! Does that mean she has to stop talking to someone she likes, just because you are possessively jealous?

It's time for you to read through all the jealousy material on this site, and learn how to deal with this, if you really want to have a long term relationship (or with any other guy that has a female friend or two).
