    Default Does anyone actually have a GOOD ex??

    My 12 year olds Dad is marginally OK. He is sulky and moody, but the father of my other 3 is just amazing. Nasty and sometimes scary..

    Are there any good EX stories? I have a lot of years of dealing with him yet, hoping it gets better..

    My ex and father of my oldest boys is great. We parted ways amicably and have remained friends for the last 7 year's since we split.
    Father and ex of youngest 2 is horrible and I would be happy to never see him ever again!

    That's great that you can remain friends with your ex, I can get along ok with mr12s dad, but it's only if I agree with everything he wants, we both went to our sons Year 6 Farewell together with no dramas, as I said he's a sook though..

    I wish my other ex could vanish.. Really do!

    My ex is ok. Not fantastic but not terrible. He always turns up when he says he will. He pays CS and pays for extra things when I ask him to. I can't really complain.

    My ex is good. I feel annoyed with him at the moment but that's just because I'm struggling a bit financially and I feel like he has an easy life. But he always has the boys when he is meant to and extra if I need him to. He is very flexible and tries to accommodate my needs when necessary (I also do this for him). He is a wonderful father to the boys. He also is happy for me to call them when I miss them and sends through nice photos of them. I do wish he wasn't still in his current relationship (the affair that broke us) as there would be no stress whatsoever then. But all in all he is a good ex. I feel lately I'm the nasty one - which is only a new thing

    My ex is good with the kids, they love him and he adores them. He's just not a very good person, has certainly brought out the worst in me at times.
    He's not a flexible Dad though, it has to be his way or nothing unfortunately..

    I don't have an ex so this is a serious question. I know the divorce rate is like 50% and relationships sometimes just have a natural expiry date. But why would you have children with someone that is as awful as many people's exes seem? Do they all just change dramatically?

    I was with my exH for 11 years. Married for over 5 years. Both our children were planned. I thought we would grow old together. In answer to your question - yes it changed all dramatically the moment I realised he was having an affair with my best friend. He was still kissing, cuddling, being 100% attentive towards me. I was also 5 months pregnant with our second. We'd built a lovely home together just shy of 2 years earlier. Had a healthy social life, laughed together, planned out future. If I didn't see the evidence with my own eyes I would never have believed it. I used to be on a bit of a high horse not understanding why people couldn't make marriages work. Professing my husband would never do that - he was my best friend and shocked an enormous amount of people with his actions ... None more so than me. It's still a little hard for me to comprehend it fully. In my mind it is like for 11 years he was one person and overnight he became someone else.

    I'm not a single parent but I thought it would be obvious. Things happen, people change, sometimes the rose coloured glasses come off a little later after kids, abusive relationship, too scared to leave... Many reasons actually.
