7. Be Respectful of Your Ex

If all your ex hears from his family is how you diss him every time you're with his family, neither him nor his family will like you very much.

No matter how much you might dislike your ex, be respectful around his family.

They love him dearly and won't be comfortable hearing about all the things he did wrong.

Instead, try to avoid talking about your ex at all and focus on less volatile topics.

Just because your relationship is over, you don't have to cut off any relationships you made as a result.

You can still be friends with his family and even mutual friends.

It may take some time for everything to work out, but it will with a little hard work and patience.

Have you ever managed to stay friends with your ex's family after a breakup?
