Divorced and Forced

Holy shit, I'm not the only one living like this.  It's good to know there are others I suppose.  Two nights ago I had some ideas about this trend, and perhaps a way to have a business based on these concepts.  Divorced and living together in the same home.  Well, in my case, I'm not forced to live in the same house with my spouse, but to move out would mean everyone has to lower their standard of living.  It also means that I don't get to be surrounded by my kids and see them everyday.  That would be devastating for me and for them.  Sometimes when I'm away from them for 2 or 3 days I really  miss them and they miss me too.  So no, I'm not gonna have a custody battle when it isn't necessary and this living arrangement isn't for forever.  Thank Gawd!!

Oh, if you're living in this kind of arrangement too, and if you're a hot woman, in southern California, well we should meet.  I want to go over my ideas with you, and maybe have a glass of wine while we explore.  haha!!  I'm working on exploiting all angles now.

So, do you live in the basement and she on the first floor, or are you just in a bedroom and she in another bedroom.

I met a lot of fellows living like this in Kentucky. The situation used to be described by eligible women as "basement boys" which referred to guys living with the wife but separated or divorced as well as guys living with their parents again.

I think it is so great that you are willing to stay where you are for the sake of your kids. It takes a real man to make that kind of decision. Proud to know you!

I wish more people thought like you, Dewey! Your kids can only benefit from this arrangement for as long as you can maintain it.

You should come to the East coast Dewey. LOL!

I like a man who can be practical! You seem to have a great relationship with your children and you're only cultivating that further. Now all you need to ensure is a little private space for visitors ;-)

Packing my bags right now... (not living the arrangement but I do have other qualifications for your short list methinks).
