Do you think there are boundaries in divorce situations that should apply to all situations?

When people have different boundaries, what do you think can help alleviate drama?

How do you balance boundaries when you share children?

Answer to question #1 no, every situation is different... duh.

Answer to question #2, a married couple should have boundaries to protect their spouce. So if SM doesn't like BM then BM should not be allowed to step inside SM's house. and vise versa.

balancing boundaries? we SET boundaries and expect them to be followed... and if BM oversteps a boundary, she eother gets texted later on, or emailed... period end of sentence.... no boundaries are set to hurt children... they are set to keep a peiceful environment for the children

"How does it work that you would inform BM regarding the broken boundary?"

I said that "she would be informed"... not that I would be the one informing...

"What kind of boundaries do you have?"
