Getting divorced in Virginia? Celeb Advice for Parenting After Virginia Divorce
Posted on Mar 29, 2012
If you're getting divorced in Virginia, you might have questions about parenting after divorce and relating to your ex. The aftermath of divorce is often a difficult time that can be tricky for anyone.
It's been 2 and a half years since Jon and Kate Gosselin's divorce. Although their breakup drama may be old news, their post-divorce relationship is still evolving. Kate recently spoke with Dr. Drew Pinsky about the way the former couple handles their interaction as they navigate shared custody.
Things weren't always easy for the couple. Their split, in the wake of adultery accusations against Jon, wasn’t a friendly one. In 2010, Kate said that she and Jon still hadn’t made up and that some of their children also had emotional issues because of the divorce.
Now, things are looking up. Kate reports that she and Jon live their own lives and that their relationship is “more peaceful” now than it was in the early months following their divorce. She says that it's not likely that either of them are doing anything differently; the change happened naturally.
Many couples find that time heals the initial stormy feelings between them and that they’re able to move on toward a friendlier emotional place. Even if you’ll never be best friends with your ex-husband you should try your best to be civil with him. It’ll make for a much smoother experience when co-parenting after divorce.
