    I’d love to hear from anyone happily co-parenting & co-habiting with their ex-partner.

    9 months after I came out to my husband, lots of tears, sadness, late-night conversations and hugs, we’ve decided that’s how we’d like to move forward. Different bedrooms, same house. We’ve started telling friends and family and telling the kids soon too.

    would love to hear some positive stories.

    We both still love each other as family & friends and don’t want to miss out on things with our kids. We’re having open & honest conversations about meeting other people, and although it’s hard it feels genuinely positive.

    I know it’s not for everyone, but we think it’s for us.

    Hey @LaraB

    I don’t have any advice to your particular situation. I’m in a 3 way sorta relationship that defies any sort of definition and, so far, it seems to be working for all of us.

    each situation is unique. I applaud you for looking outside the box to find a solution and wish you the best of luck.

    Communication between all parties is the only advice I know!
