Is It Right To Marry Your Friend's Ex? Can You?

This is a real story that happened within my circle of friends:

Scenario - My friend, Guy A, is a very gentle and cool guy, while Guy B is a gangster type rough guy. Both are good friends from the same tribe and area. Guy B has a very beautiful girlfriend who is also gentle and caring. But being the player Guy B is, he dumps her as he usually does to his girlfriends. Guy A doesnt waste time, he moves in and asks the girl out and within months he proposes. They are married now.

Did Guy A stab Guy B in the back, since he was 'waiting in the wings'?

If faced with similr situation what would you do?

Can you marry your friend's ex?

Nautillus darling ofcourse you will be nervous and your mind will stray to silly thoughts. But if there is true love theres nothing to worry about. Look we all have eyes and minds. My rule is look but no touching!

Nothing wrong with it. If he wanted her he wouldnt have dumped her!

You cannot have a hold over someone you dumped!

That's very odd. depends on how close i am to that ex. For much of my friends i can go ahead and have no problems with it.

There are some certain "friends" of mine who are more like family, for those set of 3 guys not even a prophecy will make me marry such a woman!

It really depends on the circumstances in which they broke up. Have a typical story. A friend broke up with her boyfriend for whatsover reason and we all felt for the guy. Like 4 yrs later this guy now goes after her closet friend who was her Brides maid. What beat all of us was that her friend actually considered going out with the guy. But her mother made life hard for and critcized that move claiming that if her friend didnt break up with her boyfriend they marry and that one now wants to have an affair with her will she agree.

It is true that things happen but the part of the world in which we live in frowns on such. People might actually say that you were praying for them to break up in the first place.

But if your motive is right and you are able to talk to all relevant parties and prove your point well with them and be sure that it is not infatuation or some other silly emotions that is making you make that move then go ahead.

If God wants you two together no jupiter can stop it.

I don't think there's a problem at all, unless the two of u are really close buddies, i would grab the opportunity with both hands. why did he leave her, they always say if one door closes another opens, i guess that's the case.

It doesn't matter.The main issue is that :Do the second man love the girl?

The other friend should endeavor to stay with one girl or quit

Maybe the question should have been asked a while ago, "Is it right to date your friend's ex?" If you have already made it beyond that point and are now considering marriage, then why look back? But to answer your question, No, I don't think it is right but it really depends on how close you are as friends.

What right has Man B to her.

Most relationships go on insuch a way that the girl belongs to the man and vice versa. If the girl strays the mn gets angry and maybe lashes out at her etc etc.

The girl does not belong to Man B -- whether in a relationship or not -- so who she marries is her business.

If presented with the opportunity to marry a suitable person, I won't deny myself of it because I happen to know her ex-boyfriend.

If you don't want me to marry your girl, don't dump her. Simple! See Would You Date Your Friend's Ex?
