Brad and Jennifer still share "deep friendship"

Filed under: Divorce & Custody, Celeb Parents

I will admit that when the whole Jen and Brad thing went down in 2005, I didn't hesitate to join Team Aniston. It just seemed to me that Brad was moving on to the next best thing without giving serious consideration to his wedding vows. Sure, Angelina Jolie was the mother of all temptations, but couldn't he have at least tried to resist?

If Aniston was angry and hurt, she likely had every right to be. Which is why it surprises me a little that Pitt claims the two are still good friends, telling Details magazine, "Jen and I still maintain a deep friendship and have a lot of life together that isn't erased in any way."

I am all for remaining on good terms with your ex. When I first met my husband, I was still friendly with my ex boyfriend. We had long since quit dating, but were neighbors and regularly exercised together. Sometimes we would meet for lunch and he even bought me presents on my birthday. The difference between our situation and that of Aniston and Pitt, besides unbelievable good looks, fame and money, was that our reasons for parting had nothing to do with a third party. Nobody was left embarrassed and humiliated, wondering what happened. That certainly makes being friends a lot easier.

What about you? Do you have an ex somewhere who you now consider a friend? How does that sit with your current partner?
