Cupid’s Advice:

Though it may be tough to remain civil with your ex following a break-up, there are many reasons to keep things amicable post-divorce. Here are some reasons to remain civil with your ex after a break-up:

1. They know your backstory: Having been through so much together, your ex knows everything about you. Keeping them around as a friend is a great idea so that you have someone you can go to if you need advice.

2. Your relationship was too important to just end things completely: So, you couldn’t find a way to make things work as partners, but that doesn’t mean you can’t remain friends. After being together for so long, you can’t just pretend your ex doesn’t exist, so, it’s best to stay civil with them.
