Yes, I’ve been interested in writing about just that — to remember why you fell in love with your ex so you can at least continue to get along with them once you’re divorced.

The fact is, I still enjoy chatting with my ex. I see why we got together. But after spending any given amount of time with him (sometimes just a few minutes!), I also remember why I left.

But, yes, I’m doing my best to stay civil and, I dare say, even warm with him. This is not just for our kids’ sake but for my own mental health as well. Who needs the drama?

I write about relationships, women’s issues, and my highly imperfect life. Learn more about me: my.bio/theformerlymrs Support: ko-fi.com/ellesilver
