We've been talking for the past few weeks about doing what's best for the children as adults. If you have an ex in your life and you have children in the union or children from a previous relationship, you will be called to co parent which can, if allowed, cause tension between the new person in the picture. The ideal situation would be for all parties to live in perfect harmony, right? However, we don't live in a perfect world and if selfishness, wrong motivations or strife exist, "Houston, we are going to have a problem."
The reason second time around relationships fail, many times is because we have not set boundaries with the previous. As a woman, one thing I know is that if the other woman feels she has the upper hand on you because of what the man does, it will cause conflict.
How does one get through?
Do you discuss what goes on in your current relationship with your ex?
When it comes to the children, how is our discussion? Should you always be available for frivolous conversation?
How does one make the ex realize that they are going to have to deal with the current person you're in a relationship with?
When is it okay to be honest with the ex and let them know you are in a new relationship?
It is important when there are children involved to maintain a good healthy balance in your relationship with the ex and the current. It’s never an easy transition, but many times we create our own defaults and downfalls, which often lead to epic fails.
