As the child: My parents are splitting up. I know that my 1st little sister (16 years) freaked out when she saw that dad had a woman over in the middle of the day (she came home early because she was sick--boy was dad surprised!) I'm pretty open-minded. My parents can have people over or whatever....but there is no way I'll think of them as family. Probably ever. But it's still early so who knows?
The closest I ever got to "ex-husband" is my ex-fiance. I do not speak to him. Not because I am being stubborn about it, it's because he is a horrible, mean person who cannot have a conversation with someone without trying to prove how 'superior' he is to them (myself included...during the relationship!) HE will call me stupid for not having as good a vocabulary as him (I've recently realized that i'm not stupid. It took me a long time to understand that he's just an asshole--excuse my language. There's no nicer way to explain him.) and a variety of other reason (pick one.). I'm still trying to wrap my head around how horrible the whole thing was.
Point is: he is NOT EVER allowed into our house. I feel like it would be an invasion of our safe little sanctuary.
His ex-girlfriends are alright. I mean, I would let them in the house. His 1st one is not an issue. They don't talk and she has no reason to come here but the other one is actually dating his best friend now (they're all cool with it, it's fine
) She's a sweetie. We're all pretty good friends so I don't have any sort of issue with aving them over for dinner or a hang-out or anything.
