In a droopy economy with more cohabitating couples living together than married folk, it doesn't surprise me that a lot of us continue to live with our ex's (or live with our ex's, again) after breaking up. I recently heard of one couple that were married for more than a decade, had kids together, and broke up when the gent announced he's gay. I'm not sure the announcement came as a surprise, but the guy moved out onto another building on the same property, and the former couple now co-parent their children openly and lovingly.
So imagine my surprise when I heard about TV show with a very similar premise. Happily Divorced stars Fran Drescher (of The Nanny fame) as the ex-wife of a now openly gay man, who starts dating again while still living under the same roof as her ex.
I can see the potential humor in the situation, but also the potential blow ups, miscommunication and frustrations. If anything, I would think that living with an ex would be more challenging (by far!) than living together as a couple. But you tell me: have you ever lived with an ex? What prompted the situation? Was it a positive experience for you, and would you recommend it to other former couples?
