Tell me your stories about how your divorce was amicable and how your kids got through it seamlessly, and how you don't miss your kids too much when they're gone for their 50% time with their dad. And how you're all living happily ever after. Please.

I got divorced 11 years ago but we didn't have kids. It was one of the best decisions I ever made and Ive never regretted it.

I'm happily divorced. It wasn't a happy process but if we hadn't divorced I would very likely hate him by now, instead we get along and are somewhat friends.

That is actually my story. My dd stays with me more than 50% of the time though. But the rest is true. We still have family time every now and then and spend some holidays together. 

Love your kids more than you dislike your ex, and you can do this.

Do you miss her like crazy when she's gone?

I divorced when my girls were infants. We split when they were a month old. So they know no differently. They started EOW weekend visits at 9 weeks old so I'm also used to not having them during those visits. After a few years of turmoil between the ex and I, we get along now and coparent pretty well. He's never behind on CS.

Oh man. You're strong. I never could've done that when they were infants.

My kids were 3, 3, and 1 when I got divorced. My ex got them every other weekend, so it wasn't bad. They're 17, 17, and 15 now. They love both of their Stepparents and we all get along great.

I mean, yeah. It isn't like it was when we split. I had to get used to it. But they only live 5 minutes away, so I see her sometimes when she is at her dad's and we talk and text everyday. Now that she is older and she spends more time with me, I feel bad for her dad, but he understands that a teenage girl will want more time with her Momma.
