  • You do what you have to in order to get by dear. sleep in separate rooms and be civil to one another. After all you do share a child and bickering parents only makes the child have problems down the road. Suck it up and be civil. Do what you can to get out or get him out as fast as possible if it bugs you that much.

  • I have a friend that actually lives with her husband, and her ex husband. It is crazy. But it works for them. Her ex husband is essentially a roommate. That is what you do. You act as roommates until it comes to your child, then you act as parents on the same team. That is all the advice I have for you. that, and if it works, awesome. If not, get to a point where you make whatever has to happen to make things work (separate houses, guest house, whatever) because having a child in an environment where the parents are fighting all the time, is no good.

  • I did it for 2 years. Like vbruno said, you do what you have to do in order to get by. It's not always easy but it's not completely impossible either.

    Good luck.
