    Hi Everyone,
    I know this will be different for everyone but just curious in regards to what you did regarding your ex & his family on your social media accounts? My ex & his family are still on my Facebook account but to be honest I don’t really want them to be as I don’t want them knowing what’s going on in my life but I’m also worried by taking them off I will start World War 3. I know I can just stop posting or stop them from seeing a particular post but I like sharing important things with my family & friends especially interstate & it’s a lot of work to do exclude them every time.

    It’s not a big deal in the scheme of things but like I said just curious to know what some of you did & the repercussions.

    Thank you.

    Hi. Not sure you do have to exclude them every time. There’s an option somewhere on FB to put them on a restricted list, so they only see posts you make public. You can also unfollow their posts so you won’t see them in timeline.

    I removed my ex but over time we have become friends again so have added him back! I kept all his family on there as it was nice for them to see the kids and what they were up to in my time.

    I cut them all off. I was so desperate for my freedom from his controlling family. It was like ‘ahhhhhh .. I can live again’. It felt GOOD.

    I left everything as it was so as not to rock the boat. Having said that, we are not great fans of FB

    I liked a post or a meme that pretty much said ‘mamas need to step back and let their sons be a partner to their wives ‘ or something similiar. It actually had more funny stuff in it but i forget. This was before my ex husb and i split, his family went ballistic and caused so much drama. I happily unfriended once we split.
    Unfriend them all and their friends because they will use it in the future

    I’ve been thinking the exact same thing!!i really like my ex-husbands sister however as months have gone on and I personally texted her over Xmas but never received anything back although she sent a message on one of my fb post saying merry Xmas…basically it’s like we r drifting apart…I know part of me wishes to break free completely from his family although I’m sad too though if I unfriend they will think I don’t want to be their friends…mmmm…I removed ex husband ages ago (he’s ran off with his best pals wife).i feel it’s hurtful still being in contact with his family through kids and he doesn’t speak to Ny of mine.i read once ur in-laws become our-laws!!lol!!best saying ever!think it’s true though I would rather have an actual friend personally text me than a generic fb message or just being pals to be nosey etc a line has to be drawn at one point?!hope u make the right decision for u!!!xxx

    My sons dad is on Snapchat he recently added me but it was only because he wanted one thing.. now he is asking for videos of his son, first steps and all. Said he was coming up he recently moved to Christchurch and me in Wellington and I asked for dates like any normal person would so they can organise.. organised my message, ignored my message of “Your son looks cute carrying the teddy around aye” (at the library) ignored again so I said it’s rude to read and ignore messages. What to do!? Thanks x

    I would suggest unfriending and if anything says anything, just say it was the advice you were given by your solicitor .. or something like that!
