My ex husband and I have had no contact since before our divorce in 2006. Not that I would expect any, of course, since he was ordered to pay me several thousand dollars. - of course I'll never hear from him again.
My current DH was divorced for about 20 years when we met. He had a friendly relationship with her the whole time (they have two adult children). But he warned me that she was consistent about blowing into town and wedging herself in between him and whoever he was dating. And he allowed it. He told me he would not allow it this time. But she tried. Oh how she tried. Moved back here from China when he told her about us. I won't go into all the stunts she pulled, but my favorite was when she came to him the week before our wedding and told him she had a psychic vision that I was going to leave him in 3 years and take all of his money. Yeah ... There's no contact anymore.

14 trips and counting ...

I only speak to my ex regarding the children. Otherwise, no contact. If I liked him well enough to keep talking to him, he wouldn't be my ex.

My ex and I only converse (by email) when we need to discuss something related to our teenaged daughter. She just started university so I do keep in the loop regarding her progress. I guess I feel obligated since he's paying child support until she's finished university. I haven't "spoken" to him since the divorce was final two and a half years ago.

My husband was married once before for two years in his early 20's. It was what the kids call a "starter marriage" these days They divorced extremely amicably and decided to just get on with their lives. He hasn't spoken to her since but wishes her well. I even offered to try and find her, just so that he would know she was good and okay, and he declined. He speaks rather fondly of her and of course I am so intrigued to find out about her life.

Before the ex lost visitation rights (prompted by the kids) due to child endangerment/neglect, we rarely spoke. He stopped calling me after I got a court order that our telephone conversations could be taped by either one of us and were admissible in court (I guess it was no fun for him to call me anymore since the death threats were finally going to be admissible). Before that, he called me constantly, even after he got married.

I guess it depends. I know more than one couple that confused being good friends with being in love and got married. They got divorced and got back to just being friends.

I work with a guy who still shares a house with his ex 15 years after their divorce. He has the upstairs, she has the downstairs. And they date, other people.

I don't have an ex, but my DD does. She is recently divorced after being married for 3 years; dated for 6. No kids, but they did have a dog. She couldn't find a place that would let her bring the dog, so she let the ex have him (ex bought her out of their house). She hasn't had any contact since divorce was final; she couldn't wait for that so she could block his calls/ emails. He offered to let her visit the dog, she wants a clean break.

None, by choice. If they knocked on my door, I probably wouldn't answer the door
