15 Men Confess How They Feel About Friends Dating Their Exes

UHHHHHHH, BRO-CODE VIOLATION MUCH?!

Full disclosure: Two years ago, I was a groomsman at a wedding where one of my good college friends married a woman I had gone out with for a bit. So, I may be a little biased when I say marrying someone your friend used to go out with is a crime on equal footing with carrying out a multi-billion dollar Ponzi scheme or just straight-up murder.

When you are born into this world with testicles, you immediately sign a contract with every other man on the planet. You vow to do things like not pee in a standing urinal next to another man, never let a man purchase man-Uggs and always offer up the last beer from the fridge (though code strictly states a fellow bro must always refuse such an offer).

But one rule stands above all else, and it involves dating and sex. FOR IT WAS WRITTEN IN THE MAN-SCROLLS,

THOU SHALT NOT LAY SKIN TO THE MAIDEN A FELLOW BRO SERIOUSLY DATED FOR, LIKE, A WHILE.

But what if this rule was transgressed? Obviously, this is a major offense, but is it enough to call off the bro-lationship completely?

TL;DR The heart wants what the heart wants, but that doesn't always mean the heart is right. The heart is like a very loud and decisive child that way.
