If you were to ask me a few years ago, that I would end up divorced, a single parent, and end up in somewhat difficult co-parenting relationship, I wouldn’t believe you.  Yet, here I am.  It’s better this way though and I’m glad that I am out of the relationship.  The hardest part is the co-parenting.  We have different parenting styles.  After being in this relationship – I never want to be in one again.  I am way more guarded now than ever.
