Continuing to live with your ex while divorcing is not always possible. For example, there could be so much tension between the two of you that it affects your children negatively, and you could feel smothered or unfairly treated.
Divorce is still a prevalent aspect of American society. In fact, over 800,000 divorces took place in the United States in 2014, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
When you share children with an ex, a worrisome issue may arise when your ex starts dating someone and you do not like the person. Alternatively, your ex may have already been dating someone who seemed fine, but his or her personality has taken a turn for the worse.
