When couples are in the pre-divorce stage, communication is often strained, especially if one of the parties moves out and establishes another residence. When children are involved, it's important that the co-parenting continue, even if the marriage may not. Sometimes a major issue in the marriage is the method of childrearing, the ethics and moral values to be instilled and the manner of discipline to be enforced. What happens when estranged couples can't agree on these critical matters? Today we examine two cases of relationships that have become estranged, and yet, while the couples have split apart and are considering counseling to try to work things out, they still must continue their roles as parents. How do they learn to agree on what is in the best interest of the children when they are deeply embroiled in a battle between themselves? Our relationship experts help decipher the best way to handle co-parenting even when the husband and wife have separated.
