The end of the line of a relationship may have been reached, however, it's not always easy to split up your movie collection and go your separate ways. You may be sharing a lease, or a mortgage. You may not be able to afford living in your place without that extra income. How are you going to share visitation with your new puppy Frenchie. What do you do then?
You do have an option of sharing the place with your ex. Granted, it's not ideal but sometimes it's just the economically sound thing to do. Even though former ‘Real Housewife of New York’ Bethenny Frankel has filed for a divorce from husband for three years, Jason Hoppy, they are still planning on living together. How does this work in practice?
You have to sit down and discuss your boundaries: such as cut out the sex, which won't make it easier to stay live together, dating other people, sleeping in separate beds. keeping the passive-aggressive snipping at each other to a minimum and even setting the move-out date. It may not happen immediately, but being able to at least think of when it'll end will stop it from feeling like never-ending torture.
