Co-Parenting After Divorce and for Never-Married Parents
Co-parenting is a life-long relationship. Your children keep you linked to the other parent even if you are parenting after divorce or never-married.
In fact, most divorced and unmarried parents have more years of co-parenting ahead of them than the actual years of their marriage or dating relationship. Removing the intimacy of a marriage or dating relationship can sometimes lead to improved communication and warmer feelings between the parents.
Of course, this is the ideal scenario for co-parenting.
