Q&A: A Spouse Having Ex’s as Facebook Friends

Q: My wife is friends with two past boyfriends on Facebook and it makes me feel comfortable. What is your advice?

Gary: I think most husbands would feel uncomfortable with this situation; your feelings are valid. If in sharing these feelings with her she says that they are just keeping up, don’t assume that she is being disingenuous. However, even if she is being honest she should still be respectful of your feelings and wishes. Be open about your feelings about it. Don’t demand that she unfriend them, but sincerely request it.
