Interested in opinions and experiences. A friend and I have been debating whether it is possible/common/healthy to have a divorce where both parents stay friends, do things together with kids and help one another out. I don't know anyone who has done this personally and wonder if there is a reason for that. Is it human nature that when kids and money are involved it gets messy? Also. ..is it only possible until someone repartners and therefore better to cut ties earlier?
