What should you do if your boyfriend wants to be friends with his ex?

Let him, just cause he wants to be friends doesnt mean he likes her. If he has children with the Ex. The children are #1.. That makes you at-least #2, A hard pill to swallow, But would you want to be with a man that would put his children anything less then #1? For many people, they like their ex as a person, they just had some major issues that they don't want in a relationship. If there are no children, being 'friendly' with your ex is admirable, it means he's mature and not crazy, but 'friends' meaing they hang out together (as opposed to a group of their mutual friends) would be odd. Give him some room by not being too jealous, but also say outright where your boundries are. Showing some concern will let him know you have serious feelings for him, but don't go crazy jealous either.
