Ex-spouses and frequency of contact

My ex and I need to have somewhat regular contact due to our children and scheduling issues, but if there are no children involved, how frequently do you contact or does your ex contact you?

I wouldn't see a reason for that if there are no children involved and the ends are all tied up.

my mom and dad talk to each other a couple times a year, usually because they are both doing something involving me, my brother, or my nephews. Other than that not really much at all. I think the only time in the past 20 years they have had contact that did not involve us it was a few years ago when my dad had a SS/retirement question for my mom.

My ex stepfather she has had contact with once, to tell him to tell his creditors to quit calling her.... He was a couldn't keep a job dork then and now he's a deadbeat senior citizen dork. Every few years we get a few calls asking us to tell him to pay his phone/electric/etc. We no longer bother.

My ex and I are friends, so we talk more than most divorced couples do. Most of the time its about our son.

I have a teenager and I still only contact him if absolutely necessary. If there were no kids involved it would be zero contact.

I see and/or have contact with my ex at least weekly, usually several times a week. We have a few things not tied up - dogs, some financial stuff - but the contact is not always about those things. Our divorce was amicable (as much as something like this can be) and we are friends. Some days we are great friends and some days its a bit more difficult, but it's important to both of us.

I don't think a divorce has to mean hatred and avoidance. In my opinion, if it works for the couple, it shouldn't matter to anyone else - even new dating partners.

To be fair, though, I have two exes, and I haven't seen the other in over 18 years, and that is just the way i like it.

My ex and I had regular contact while the kids were growing up, but since they've become adults - nothing. The last time I saw/spoke to him was at DS' high school graduation.

So far there haven't been any events involving our children that would require both of us to be there (like a college graduation or wedding), but that would be the only time I would expect to be in contact with him.

If there are no children, never. It's been 37 years since I had any contact with my first husband.

My parents (divorced) live a quarter mile away from each other .

They are still good friends, go to my DS's events and are civil, etc.

Now if no children are involved, I can't see why you'd speak at all....

Nothing except to notify someone of passings/serious illness in the family if they were close during the relationship.
