For whatever reason, the relationship ends. But the former couple manage to maintain some level of good will toward each other. Perhaps they even remain on friendly terms.
I have many patients with parents like this. Though their marriage has come to an end, they find a way of treating each other well. Or at least they put aside their differences in the interest of their children, and commit to being cordial in their roles as co-parents. They both show up for medical appointments, they take each other’s perspectives seriously, and they come to decisions about their children’s care together.Leave a reply →
