Question

Is it ever appropriate to speak badly about your ex?

A recent CelebrityLove article about Russell Brand and Katy Perry prompted quite a few e-mails about the topic of dissing your ex, so we decided to post this as a new VeryUQ.

Relationships fail for various reasons, but when your relationship fails, should the ex be off limits? Is there an unspoken rule or code of ethics that one should follow after a breakup? Does it make you look like a complete lunatic when you bash your ex to others, or is it okay to vent?

We want to hear from you. Share your thoughts and comments below.
