You, me, all of us are familiar with this question.
Can they?
Should they?

It rather hinges on why and how two people break up. Who, after an acrimonious separation, would particularly want to stay friends?

Some were never made for each other, but they have a strong connect.. In those cases friendship can survive.

What complicates these matters is that separations are rarely completely mutual and equal; there is the leaver and the left. If however they are children, the parties may have to be 'friendly', even if they can not quite manage to be friends.

No!!! Even if the relationship did not work, the love is still there. You remember all your intimate moments of passion; and there is no way to turn the clock back. 6, 7 years later maybe, but I'm not that old yet :p

I have never been divorced, but I have nevertheless had a few ex's. With a small e I should say probably. With one young man we had known each other since school days and we simply grew apart over time. We remained friends, and we still exchange the occasional christmas card. Both of us just naturally felt the same way.

It gets painful.....jealousies and complications......its better to make a clean break, after all you did not break up for no reason

It all depends on how the relationship ended. If the couple decided to part ways mutually, figuring that it was actually not love holding them together, then being simply friends is an option to be thought of. But a relationship ending on a bitter note leaves a bad aftertaste that is hard to get over.

I feel sometimes couples break up too late...they leave it for too long.......so when they finally part ways there are many bad memories.....many words that should not have been spoken.....people can really hurt each other if they want to....especially when they know each other's weak spots.

guys are more often ready to be friends after a relationship than women. I don't really know why that is, but I read it somewhere.

I think women tend to feel more vulnerable and at sea. Men often bounce back faster.

Unless they get dumped. Guys don't want to stay friends in that case :)
