Ex's and their family

A couple seperates and divorces after 14 and 1/2 yrs. The (ex)wife had a daughter from a previous marriage that was 3 yo at time of remarriage, the couple had 2 children of their own during the marriage. The (ex)husband remarries a little over 2 yrs after divorce was final and has been married for a little over 8yrs. The (ex)wife remarries 9 yrs after divorce was final and has been married for 1 and 1/2 yrs.

How unusual, or not, is it that the (ex)husbands family still has relations with the (ex)wife and her previous daughter?

Doesn't seem unusual at all to me. They were her grandparents during the entire part of her childhood that she can remember. Divorce doesn't erase that.

Agreed! They will always have a relationship regardless of what happens to the family.
