Ex Spouse Etiquette – We’ve got a few tips for etiquette and advice on how to deal with an ex spouse. Breakups are hard to deal with, but many people find themselves in denial, and there’s others that want revenge. Follow these guidelines and things will get a lot easier.
First, do not invite your ex to your wedding. Believe it or not, many people do this in either revenge, or to make the other person feel jealous. There is no reason for them to be there.
We all probably know several people who don’t follow the common ex spouse etiquette rules. I actually know someone who asked their ex to give them away. What were they thinking?
Do not call your ex, with whom you do not have children, to check in. Allow your ex to move on with his or her life, and you do the same. You deserve better than this.
It’s never good to visit your ex or have lunch or drinks, unless you want to get back together. Honor your breakup and your new life the same way you honored your marriage. If you didn’t honor your marriage, learn your lesson and honor the divorce.
If you have children, you still need to follow ex spouse etiquette by not giving your children false hopes of your getting back together. It is more important for the children to accept the reality of their new life no matter how painful it may be. This way they can move on.
