Obviously we are all here for different reasons and in different situations, but I feel like things are going way to smoothly. So this week my STBX has counseling this weekend and it's his weekend with the kids. So I am watching the boys while he goes and then he will pick them up and go back to his place. Next week, I travel all week for work and he will have them. In a few weeks, on the weekend he has the boys, he is invited to a party so I told him I will take the boys that weekend. He invites me to parties he has at his place. Yesterday, he brought me a Valentine's Day gift (a CD of an artist that I like and don't have) and I sent chocolate covered strawberries for the boys and him for their Valentine's dessert when he came to pick up the boys.
What has been your experience with this type of stuff? I feel like it's almost too amicable.
The follow up to this is that I contacted a mediator on Monday to discuss how mediation actually works. STBX wants to do a collobrative or mediatiated divorce. Has anyone done this/doing this? In my state, if you do not have all of the details worked out through mediation using attorneys or not, the divorce goes to litigation and the judge decides everything when you file after the 1 year and 1 day.
