Would You Be OK With His Ex Attending Your Wedding?

In case you missed it, Bruce Willis married Emma Heming in Turks and Caicos over the weekend, and as I'm sure you could have guessed, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were in attendance. While I think it's great that Demi and Bruce have been able to maintain a friendship postdivorce, especially for their kids' sake, I don't know if I'd be OK with my new husband's ex-wife attending my wedding. While I know they've both moved on, I think I'd want my wedding to be all about us without having to worry about what his ex is thinking, or being reminded that he's taken the walk down the aisle before. Now that's just my opinion so tell me, would you be all right with your husband's ex-wife attending your wedding?

Hard to say. I have an ex who is friends with us and we all hang out in the same group. Although, I don't even like to know that my BF's ex is in the same city. I'm probably just being immature.

Depends on the ex LOL! If they're still friendly and she's cool toward both of us, then, hey why not, but if she's not that nice, nope. Then again, if she's not nice, there's no way, hub will keep be friends w/ them anyway.

Oh yeah... and all of his exes can come. Not a problem, he'd be marrying a secure woman, not a prison guard. :)

I didn't attend my ex-husband's but mostly because it was awkwardly planned (and then they used my favorite color! lol) and I didn't really know her since it was soon after our divorce (not over soon enough lol) But if I got married :fingerscrossed: I'd invite them and his whole family. It's my family on the longlist :ROTFL:

If I were in this situation (either side) I think an appropriate solution would be invite the ex but the ex shouldn't actually attend. I mean, unless you are "special" and still have a remarkable relationship like these two, there is no reason to see one another on your wedding day. But, from the other side, receiving an invite is nice to recognize.

Definitely, not an issue. They're your ex for a reason.

I would be fine with it especially if we had children together. It is obvious they both moved on years ago.

No way. To me, inviting an ex is a weird move, like you're trying to prove something or rub it in their face.

Nope! She'd better stay away! She only ever contacts him when she has something to brag about (her engagement, her motorbike) so b*tch better stay the hell away from my happy day. :D However, MY ex is probably going to be the best man. Go figure...

didnt tom bradys ex (briget moynyhan) attend his wedding with giselle? i guess its the comfort level of the couple with the ex

I'd be okay with it... I mean, if I'm getting married to someone I am going to feel 100% comfortable with them and trusting of them. And I'm not going down the aisle thinking about anyone but him and me! :)

Probably not, nor would I choose to attend an exes wedding.

I'm down. I'd love to show off to all of the ex's that he loves me and wants to marry me. It's a nice slap in the face.

Eh, yes and no. My husband's ex DID show up to our wedding which was especially uncomfortable because it was a VERY small, intimate wedding with only our families. However...the weird part was, although they dated for a while, when they broke up, she started dating his very best friend who he DESPERATELY wanted to be his best man. They are now married, so of course by having him as the best man, we had to invite her. I was definitely worried of her opinion of me, if she would make things uncomfortable...blah blah blah. I hated having to worry, so on that point, if I did it again, I probably wouldn't want her there. After realizing that my husband was there marrying ME and that was sort of the ultimate slap in the face to all his exes ( I WON lol) I didn't really care... and further more, after talking to her at the reception, I really liked her! She is a kind beautiful women and loves her husband just as much as I love mine. So really it was fine :) But there are some of his exes that I would have absolutely NOT allowed to be at the wedding.

It totally depends on he situation. When kids are involved it changes everything. I think it's great that everybody involved is so mature about it for the sake of the kids. I wouldn't want by bf exes at our wedding, because I'm weirdly jealous when it comes to his exes (while I'm totally not jealous with anyone else...and he has a lot of girls hitting on him in his job...) But we're still really young and non f our previous relationships were as serious as ours. So no exes please! ;)

No way in hell would I invite an ex to my wedding unless they were a close friend. It would just be too awkward.

it would be fine.

It would be rather odd, as he hasn't had any contact with his exes in over 5 years. They just fell out of touch. I haven't had contact with mine either, but that's a conscious choice on my part, and I wouldn't want him at my wedding.

Yes, I'd be OK with that. I'd be marrying the guy, why would I be insecure about his ex?

My husband was IN his ex's wedding ! ... and one of mine was in ours !, no ;)

I think I'd be okay with this. I'm really good friends with my ex, so I'd want my SO to be okay with my ex there. I wouldn't hold a double standard, so if my SO wanted his ex there, that'd be fine by me (unless she still had feelings for him).

We didn't really encounter this situation at our wedding because neither of us had ex-spouses or even long-term ex-boyfriends/girlfriends. But if my husband had invited one of his exes, I don't think I'd mind. If you feel secure enough in your relationship, it shouldn't matter who comes to your wedding. Unless they try to poison your champagne or something like no psycho exes, I guess.

if his ex was courteous and i was sure there was nothing to worry about, i wouldn't mind at all. in fact, i would probably be okay with my boyfriend's baby momma attending my future (and imagined) wedding. she can be crazy but i know i would want her son in my wedding.
