4 Tips for Dealing with a Challenging Ex-Spouse

You’ve probably heard stories of couples who get divorced amicably and somehow become even better friends after their divorce. Must be nice, right? Unfortunately, you find yourself in day-to-day combat with your ex-spouse, and you just don’t know how to deal with it.

A challenging ex-spouse can make your life miserable, but if you have kids, you’re going to have to learn how to deal with them. Here are 4 tips to help make it a little bit easier for you.

  1. Focus on the business at hand—Don’t get personal when you talk with your ex. Only focus on important business as it relates to your children so you can try to avoid conflict as best as possible.
  2. Try to be agreeable whenever possible—You might not always be on the same page as your ex, but if there are little things you can agree about, in regards to parenting or other issues, try to find that common ground.
  3. Recognize your own role in the conflict—Are you doing anything that’s making matters worse? Take responsibilities for your actions so that you’re not contributing to the ongoing conflict.
  4. Learn to forgive—You might still hate your ex, but at some point you need to move on. Do your part to forgive and leave the hurt feelings behind.
