Getting along with Ex

I've read some of the post and thought wow I can relate to these women. Unfortunately my ex and I broke up when I was 5 months pregnant. The weird thing is that we get along much better. It sometimes feels as if were not even broken up. Its understandable since we only dated for 2 months before I got pregnant. Although we talked for 7 months it was to soon for us to have a child. The plus side of this whole thing is that I gained a best friend :)

It's a lot easier to co parent when you get along for sure. I have been divorced from my 1st husband for 9 years and we have done 50/50 shared care all of that time. Our boys are now 12.5 and 10 and are the most well rounded boys I have known for a while.
I wouldn't say my ex is a friend but we tolerate each other and can calmly discuss the care of the boys. I have since remarried and we all get together for the children's birthdays. It makes it a lot easier for the children if their parents can still get along even if they aren't together.
