I’m in my mid-20s and will soon be getting a divorce from my high school sweetheart (we’ve been together a total of 10 years). While we may no longer be partners, we’re still friends. My family is very small and I’m close to his parents; I consider them to be family. It’s hard enough to see my relationship end, but losing them too would make things even harder. Is it possible to continue talking to them? My ex says he’s OK with it. What about after we’ve each found someone new?
