Divorce is painful and how we make divorce less painful for children is one to be really mature. If it did not work out between you and your spouse. For me it did not work out for me and my guy. And it has been a process to get on away from your hurt and anger with each other to the point where we have to work together for them. We might not like to be in the same room together but we have to realize that our mission in life is not just about you and I. It is about how we relate to each other in relation to our children. And they need stability in terms of not chaos and drama. They need to know they can count on us and they need to know that we are not going to be dumping, emotionally dumping, physically dumping, our anger and disappointment on them. It is not their responsibility. So my understanding is that you get really grown up really quickly.
