Is it OK for your partner to be friends with their ex?

Would you permit such friendship or not?

Dating such people won't pose any ex problem. Obviously the ex is out of the picture and is harmless to the new relationship.

The great ex

On the other hand, there are people who broke up with their partner amicably; torn apart not by acrimony but circumstances beyond their control, beyond fixing.

In some instances, the friendship will remain dear as if they never broke up.

How sensible does an arrangement as this sound to you? Would you be cool with your boyfriend or girlfriend staying friends with their ex [es]?
