Friendly exes: Possible? Or that's not 'no' that's 'h*ll, no!'
I'm curious about how we all deal with exes. Of course in cases of the unfortunate need for restraining orders good relations probably aren't possible. But most unions don't end by bombing the bridge and sinking the boat, they often gradually erode.
My ex and I are still engaged in raising two teens and over the years we have developed an amiable co-parenting relationship. We are respectful and for the most part friendly toward each other. Without the kids between us, I doubt we would have bothered but necessity outweighed animosity. It's just easier to get along than not.
How about others?
