|Coping with divorce can be one of the most difficult challenges a
person faces in a lifetime. Divorce brings up many painful emotions
such as, grief, guilt, anger, fear, and many other strong feelings.
However, ending a marriage does not mean ending the relationship,
especially when there are children involved. Setting aside strong
feelings may be the hardest part of learning to work cooperatively
with your ex, but it's also perhaps the most imperative.
This often involves working on communication, goal setting, and
careful negotiation of new boundaries and expectations as you move
forward as co-parents and ex-spouses.
