Twenty years after the divorce, Lenny Kravitz is on great terms with his ex-wife, Lisa Bonet. The pair were married for six years and had a daughter named Zoe, before calling it quits in 1993. Still, Kravitz looks back fondly on his union with Bonet.
“We were very young and it was wonderful,” Kravitz says. “Zoe’s mom and I now are best friends. It’s interesting because that’s how the relationship started.”
“We can still be friends” is far easier to say than it is to do. How do you go about rebuilding a friendship after your romantic relationship has gone sour? Cupid’s Pulse offers great advice for re-establishing a friendship after a bitter breakup:
1. Take it slow: Do not rush things. Hurt feelings left over from a nasty break up can’t be shrugged off. You need to give yourself and your ex time to heal before developing a platonic relationship.
