Cupid’s Advice:

It’s crucial after a divorce that your kids don’t think it’s their fault. If a relationship fails, you have to think of them first and if getting along with your ex is what it takes, then so be it. Cupid is here with some relationship advice:

1. Stay positive: Don’t spend too much time with your ex if you can help it, but when you do, make sure to keep the mood light. Don’t discuss bills or your past in front of the children. Always think of them first before you open your mouth.

2. Stay alert: If you feel yourself getting into angry territory with your ex, remember it’s only a temporary visit. Laugh it off when you feel yourself start to slip. Look to your kids if you get desperate; they’ll remind you who you’re fighting for.

3. Stay together: Be a team when it matters most. Try to make decisions as a unit and if you can’t, at least compromise. Find a balance so neither of you has the upper hand. Be aware of the volume of your voices when you’re around your child.
