Curious how far others live from their ex's and how involved, uninvolved ex is with the kids?
Me: I live 1 mile from the ex. Did that mainly to keep things as the same as possible for the kids. Ex has a strange schedule and really unpredictable with the kids and his parenting time.
Pros: save on gas, easy for both of us to be involved with the kids functions etc, couldn't move back closer to family so being close to ex is good in emergencies
Con's: ex likes to show up spontaneously. When I was dating someone and he found out, he drove past my house to see if my boyfriend was here (while kids were with him)
I really like my town and the neighborhood, but sometimes feel like a 5-10 mile distance may have been better for me.
