5 TIPS: HOW TO SURVIVE LIVING TOGETHER WHEN YOU KNOW YOU ARE DIVORCING
Updated: May 2
If you are in this stage of your divorce…I am sending you great big hugs and all the support I can muster. I found this to be the absolute worst part. Be strong and know that it only gets better from here.
Do your best to:
Distance yourself from your soon-to-be-ex whenever possible
Use brief, unemotional responses. Maintain as neutral a tone as possible
Make a schedule for the common spaces in your home to minimize overlap. Include time alone with your kids in the schedule, if that is a factor.
Plan non-divorce conversations with friends and family…in person or Zoom/FaceTime
Keep your end-game in mind…your happy and fulfilling post-divorce life is coming.This stage is excruciating, but it will end.
