The Thanksgiving brawl between Halle Berry's ex and current boyfriend has us thinking.

Halle Berry is seeking an extension to a protective order that requires ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry to stay at least 100 yards away from her, their daughter Nahla, and fiance Olivier Martinez following an explosive brawl between the two men on Thanksgiving morning. The scuffle began after Martinez reportedly told Aubry that they needed "to move on." He was most likely referring to the ongoing custody battle between Berry and her former beau.

Berry's holiday drama has us thinking about the fine line you have to tread when you're still in touch with your ex — in this case because of their daughter Nahla  — and have a new man in your life. And we all know there's nothing more awkward than the moment your ex love meets your new one. The questions is, what happens next? Are you the one responsible for making sure they keep the peace, or do you leave that up to them? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
