Can apply to non divorced former couples as well, thus the name. If someone's current and former squeeze get along well, it's TheMissusAndThEx.

* Averted and then possibly played straight in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' when it comes to [[spoiler: Toriel and Asgore. In the events that happened before the game, Toriel abandons Asgore after he declares war on humanity when his son was killed by humans. In the final leg of the pacifist route, Toriel and Asgore meet up again after a long time, but Toriel still hates her ex's guts for what he did and finds it near impossible to forgive him, especially after it's heavily implied that Asgore killed several children to harvest their souls so that he could break the barrier keeping his people trapped and go through with his plan. In the GoldenEnding afterwards, Asgore wants to make amends and he can be seen trimming the hedges at Toriel's school, implying that the two of them may be working things out.]]

* A same sex example in the first volume of ''Comicbook/SecretSix'' is Scandal Savage and Jeannette, who were a couple when they were imprisoned in a gulag together but didn't work out in the long run. Even though they're no longer an item they clearly care for each other a great deal and have no apparent resentment or hard feelings over their breakup, and encourage each other to pursue new relationships. It's safe to say they consider each other their best friend.

The increase in this trope can be attributed in the dramatic shift in divorce rates and public perception of those who have gone through with divorces in the last 50 years. While divorce used to be scandalous, it's now a fairly common occurrence, and this trope reflects the view that it's just a fact of life that doesn't have to permanently poison a relationship. Sometimes it even results in DivorceIsTemporary, though this is less common in more realistic works.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has Finn and [[spoiler: Flame Princess]]. They break up in season 5 after [[spoiler: Finn manipulated her into fighting with the Ice King and accidentally destroys the Ice Kingdom in the process]], and are on pretty bad terms after that, in "Earth and Water" they finally make some sort of amends, and agree to stay friends, but even then is still incredibly awkward, due to, in no small part, Finn still having feelings for her. This trope is finally played straight when they really do become friends again in season 7's "Bun Bun", in which Finn [[spoiler: admits that while he apologized, he never really understood what he did up until recently and apologizes again, stating to be truly sorry, she accepts the apologies, realizing how much he grew ever since then.]]

Increasingly common in media are situations where a divorced couple still get along for the most part, and in many cases still care about each other even though they're no longer together. In many cases the divorce happened because of distance, circumstance or the simple fact that people change rather than [[YourCheatingHeart infidelity]], betrayal or other serious problems, and the fact that they got divorced is treated as a fact of life rather than due to a flaw in the people. Both parties also generally agree that it was for the best for both of them.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Deconstructed}} with Lance and Maggie in Series 1 of ''Series/{{Detectorists}}''. They see each other nearly every day despite the fact that they're divorced, and outwardly appear to get along very well. However, in truth Lance hangs around and does boring domestic tasks that Maggie's new husband doesn't want to bother with in the futile hope that she'll come back to him one day, while Maggie is just using Lance for free labour and [[spoiler:mainly keeps him around because she learned about his lottery win and hopes she can convince him to give her some of his money]].
