    Default Living together but separate??

    Does anyone have any advice on seperation?
    Long story short is I have moved out of our family home with our daughter and into my mum's spare room. My partner and his older son still live in our home and things are amicable so far (I think they expect it to blow over and I'll be back) I don't want to come back yet as nothing ever changes and mentally I need space. The problem is I run my business from home and have clients in and out all day from 7am -4pm. My partner and his son don't have anywhere else to go But I don't want to close my Business. Am I crazy to think we can separate but still share the house, bills and kids ... at least until we can afford to find and furnish a 2nd place? It would be ideal especially for the kids and financially I just worry that when he realises I need more time/space things will turn sour.

    Hi,
    I did this with my ex- partner for 8 months. It got pretty awful and tense when he realised I wasn’t changing my mind about the separation. And I don’t think it was an ideal environment for our Dd at the time.

    I think this can only work when things are very amicable and both parties want the separation. Perhaps you could trial it and have a back-up plan ready to action if needed.

    All the best, separation with kids is so hard x

    I don’t have experience as an adult with separation but don’t underestimate how much children understand/pick up during situations like these...even really young ones. Xx
