According to EOnline.com, Cavallari was blindsided by the divorce filings even though the pair have reportedly been having issues in recent months. They have now reached a temporary custody agreement which allows them both time with their three children. We hope these two can work it out and go their separate ways!

In celebrity break-up news, Kristin and Jay have at least agreed temporarily on how to take care of their children amid their split. What are some ways to compromise when it comes to your kids in a relationship?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Once you become a parent, having to put your children’s needs in front of your own is a must. If you’re looking for ways to do that while maintaining a healthy relationship, Cupid has some advice for you:

1. Set up a plan: In order to keep your relationship strong while trying to parent, it’s important that you are always communicating. Having open and honest lines of communication with each other will allow you to work as a team. Set up a plan to establish what is happening for the weeks or months ahead. By doing this you’ll be able to see what kinds of scheduling conflicts or personal events are taking place and who needs to cover what. Organization is key! Not only will this eliminate stress, but you will feel more connected to your family unit.

2. Think of your partner: If there’s something coming up that your partner has really been looking forward to, be sure you are listening to them and acknowledging their desires. Make a compromise and offer to take care of the kids so they are able to do their thing. In the future, your partner will definitely offer to do the same. Even if it means that you’re missing something you may have wanted, it’s important to think of your relationship.

3. Respect their decisions: Before having children, think about some of the awesome experiences you’d like to check off your bucket list with your partner. Once children enter your life you’ll be compromising a lot of time and money for years to come. Take this into consideration when family planning and try enjoying yourself for a little longer! Once you welcome children into your lives, make a plan with your partner for a vacation a few years ahead. Setting up a timeline will give you both something wonderful to look forward to with your kids.
