Should I live with my DH as roommates?

We don't want to be together anymore but neither of us can really afford a decent place on our own. I am looking but with no success.

  • I assume you have children and that will be the hardest part. But I have heard of similar situations that have worked. The first and best rule to lay down would be no boyfriends or girlfriends in the house......that would be way too hard on the kids, not to mention the two of you also.

  • You both need to get your own place.

  • I did it and it worked for me for about a yr or so until I could save up and get out. Then it was a good transition.

  • As long as you guys can be civil and both of you agree to it, yes. But i agree with another mom. No boyfriends or girlfriends in the house, or even meeting the children until one of you moves out.
