When you get divorced, you split a lot of different things up with your former spouse, such as money, possessions, time with your children, etc. One thing that you might not realize that you’ll be splitting up is your friends. You probably shared a lot of friends with your former spouse, and most of those friends won’t remain close with both parties.
So, what happens to mutual friends after a divorce?
For friends that you had before marriage, you can probably expect them to stay your friend after your divorce. But if you and your ex became friends with certain people during your marriage, that’s where things will probably get a little trickier. In many cases, gender seems to be the deciding factor. The girls stick together, and the boys stick together.
Of course, at the end of the day, it’s not your decision what happens to the friends you shared with your former partner. The friends are the ones who will do the choosing, and there’s not much you can do about it.
