Divorce Dating: Should you ever date your friend's ex wife or ex husband?

This is a very heavy question for a Sunday afternoon, isn’t it? Really, I”m killing time as I wait for my sister to pick me up for our afternoon at Six Flags over Georgia. While I abhor most “amusement” rides (really, except for the merry go round and the train, what is so amusing about these terrorizing apparatuses?), we do have season passes and we are besieged by a large contingency of nieces and nephews and what else are you going to do with kids in Atlanta, if not go to Six Flags?

But in the mean time, while I wait for the car to arrive (I still can’t drive, folks, even though I got the license a year ago and that’s a big problem in a place like Georgia) I thought I’d write something on the blog. Best I could come up with is whether or not you should ever date your friend’s ex wife or ex husband. What a sick question, eh?
Should you ever date your friend's ex spouse?

Well, look, I personally don’t think you ever should. When I put myself in those particular stilettos, I don’t like how it feels. The idea that a friend of mine could even want to date my ex husband is more than just a little bit icky. Therefore, since I wouldn’t like it, I don’t think I should do it to someone else.
‘Course, I’m not perfect. And I try not to say “never.” You live and learn. You grow as you live. You mature. You evolve. Right now, where I am in my life at this moment in time, my answer is absolutely no. You should never date your friend’s ex wife or ex husband. There’s something fundamentally icky about that. There really, really is. I mean, come on. Isn’t there anyone else you can find to go out with?
