As absurd as the idea might sound to some, it appeals to many. We have seen the kind of tropes in movies and heard such things in songs, but does it really makes sense?

After a breakup, it can be difficult to consider remaining “friends” with your former. With this individual, you’ve probably shared intimate moments and life-altering memories, so it only makes sense that you would want to retain them in your life. Avoiding them could be very difficult because sometimes when a relationship ends, you not only lose a partner you also lose a friend.

However, in cases where a breakup is a result of something as huge as cheating, do you still want to be friends? Isn’t it kind of funny to keep a person in your life that quite literally humiliated you or brought so much pain? Well up until now your answer might be a straight no but we have experienced such a situation too. When Syra Yousuf smiled and took pictures at the premiere of her movie with no other than her former husband. Indeed everyone has different circumstances and different relationships, we obviously cannot see through what really goes on in others’ lives. While she did give in to such a possibility.

While some relationships might end with drama and fights, others end with mutual consent and understanding. It may take some time or you might be sitting with them at lunch, as friends the very next day of your breakup. You might meet them after several years and become friends, or never be able to be friends with them and all of these possibilities are okay. 

There is no one-size-fits-all, and you need to prioritize yourself and your comfort while taking such decisions.
