My ex lived around the corner, so he saw his girls whenever he (and they) wanted. We shared custody and it worked out beautifully.

How do people do this? (I'm talking about the couples in which both are committed to their children.) Don't get me wrong, it's not something that I want to do myself, but I find myself wondering how one even works that out. Even if I did want to break up, I just can't get past the idea of only getting to be a part time parent, of only seeing your child on certain days. The very concept is heartbreaking, and it's not as though you can deny the child sufficient time with their other parent...

I get that sometimes it has to be done, but how do people get used to only getting to be part time parents?



It hurts my heart, too.
Idk I guess you try to think of the positives. Like the sleep, TV shows or cleaning you can catch up on that way when they come back home you have more time for them?

It's really tricky.

Well, thinking about it more since then and reading some of the replies about it, it sounds to be about the same as when the kid starts school.

Sure, your time with them is cut down by it, and you miss them at first, but after a while it rocks to have that time to yourself. That's not really so bad I guess.

I am no longer together with the father of my 2 young daughters. He and I still live together with his girlfriend, the other folks we call family(no blood relatives in that bunch), our kids, and 2 dogs. Next year my love will be moving out here and probably will live in the same house with the rest of this crazy bunch. If you think our house is like a hippie commune, you're not far off.

If you all get on, then it sounds great.
