Do You Allow The Ex Over During The Holidays
It’s happens every year about this time, do you allow the ex over during the holidays to celebrate with the family? That was the topic of conversation on The Mike & Carla Morning Show this morning during “Group Therapy!”
A guy wrote in this morning saying that his aunt had invited his ex to the family Thanksgiving Day dinner. He was not real comfortable with it and wondered if he is over re-acting. On the other hand, he doesn’t want to be that guy that says, “…if she comes, I’m not going to be there!” But maybe he is that guy?
Is Your Ex Invited Over During The Holidays?
Of course, not knowing all the facts about the breakup, Carla Rea brought up a good point. If the guy’s aunt is still good friends with his ex, maybe it wasn’t that bad! We do know they weren’t married and they’re no kids involved. Mike O’Brian’s answer was just put her at the kid’s table!
Most of those that gave their input to the situation said that the it’s not that odd during the holidays. Morty, the executive producer of the show, said that his cousin has been married five times. All the ex-wives show up for the holidays. In fact, the family hasn’t seen too much of the cousin lately and really don’t even communicate with him. Problem solved!
But seriously though, what would you tell this guy? Depending on the break-up, would it really be that awkward? We’ll tell you this, if she comes over and the guy brings a date…that could make this a bit uncomfortable don’t ya think? But for who?
A lot of tangibles here, but some listeners suggested a couple of drinks, you watch football, eat…before you know it, all is good. Hey, you never know, you start talking again and before you know it, “…I’ll give her a ride home!” Tell us what you think at Mike&CarlaMailbag@963kklz.com
