I Live With My Ex-Husband And Now His New Wife Has Moved In. Here's Why It Works For Us.: Family : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
And that is what we decided to tell our 7-year-old daughter when we explained our transition. We were intentional in not using the word “divorce” or “separation,” and instead we told her we were uncoupling. We told her he was moving downstairs (the beauty of multi-leveled homes in California) and I was going to sleep alone in the master bedroom. Other than that, nothing else was going to change. We continued our family outings to the park on weekends. We continued having family dinners on Friday nights at our favorite restaurants. We shared our house and our time with her.
