Summer may be the time for love and romance for some couples, but for 41-year-old actress, Tamara Taylor, and her attorney husband Miles Cooley, it’s time to finalize their divorce, according to People. The couple put the kibosh on their marriage back in February, with Taylor being the one to file for divorce. Since their union in 2007, the two never had any children. This has made the split a lot less messy, and it’s easier for each of them to accept the situation in order to move on from their failed relationship.

What are some ways to remain amicable after a split?

Cupid’s Advice:

Breaking up is never easy, which is true in any relationship or marriage. If you and your partner are going separate ways, it’s important to remain amicable towards one another. Cupid has some tips:

1. Give each other some breathing room: You’re both experiencing a lot of hurt, so it’s not going to help either of you if you’re constantly at one another’s throats. Keep some space between the two of you so that you can each take your own approach in handling it.

2. Be nice: You don’t even have to go out of your way to do this one. Just treat your past loved one with kindness, because it may be the end of the road now, but you did once love each other.

3. Don’t pick unnecessary fights: Obviously what’s done is done, so don’t waste your energy on arguments with your ex. That negativity will only stress both of you out more, so pick and choose your battles to avoid petty drama.
