Would it be awkward/a bad idea for me to live in the same complex as my soon to be ex husband?

My husband and I of 7 years will be ending our marriage. Our two year old and I will be moving out of our home. As I've been looking around our city, I've came to the conclusion that our apartment complex is in one of the best and safest neighborhoods and within my price range. Would it be a bad idea for me to move into a different apartment in the same complex as my ex? What would be the possible problems I would be dealing with that would be different if I lived somewhere else? I also thought this might be a good way to share custody, what do you think?

I am a Paralegal in California. As to shared custody, it is nice but never seems to work. As for physical custody and move somewhere else. It will be best in the long run. I mean if you date, then what?

Its cool right after the divorce if the divorce isnt too bad but once you start dating somebody WILL get jealous. Unless its a big complex and you wont run into each other but if your gnna pass by one another daily one of you should move.

It is ideal for your children - but you will both have to put on your big people panties and get over it when you start dating. If you can be adult about the split and concentrate only on the children's needs it is perfect for the kids. I recommend Yoga or counseling to get through the first year of being that close to each other.

I think it is a great idea. You have your separate space, but your child knows that mommy and daddy are both nearby even if they aren't living under the same roof. Though you might want to have it on the opposite sides of the complex. That way neither one of you is tempted to snoop on the other ones coming and goings. Especially as each of you start dating. But see how it works, it might not always work out to be so close, but it is a good thing to try if you both don't mind.

I don't know. I wouldn't want to live near my ex. We live on opposite sides of the city, and that's perfect for me. While I understand your need to share custody, I don't think it's the greatest idea because you'd run into each other - possibly with other people that you might be seeing/dating. It can work out, but I think it would be weird...

It would be great for all of you until the day that either of you decided to date other people and the other person were to get jealous. That day may never come if you are both still in love, but cannot live together.
