It’s sad, but it happens – people get divorced. The marriage success rates just aren’t what they used to be, and we have to figure out how to co-parent with our exes better. It’s just the way of the world. One divorce trend that people are doing? Birdnesting. It’s when you designate one home for the child, and the PARENTS switch in and out of the house.
Instead of packing your bags to go to another parent’s house for the weekend, you can stay in the same house and your parents will do the work. How crazy is that? The situation works for some couples, but all in all, comes with a lot of complications. Where does the one person go while the other is living at their house? How do you deal with one living space for the two of you anymore?
If you’re going to take part in this crazy trend, you’re going to have to set some ground rules. Like no snooping through your things or sleeping in your bed! That would just be messed up.
