Woman Quarantines With Ex-Husband, Their Kids, His Wife, Her Ex-Husband & Their Kids!
Quarantine with ex-husband and the rest of this modern family seemed the best option for all during the coronavirus lockdown
Denise Albert never imagined living with her ex-husband again.
Crazy coronavirus quarantine times call for situations none of us could’ve ever imagined.
She explains the series of events that led to this set up on Facebook and in more detail on this post on ThriveGlobal.com.
Albert shares two young sons with her ex-husband, who is remarried.
Her ex’s wife has two daughters with her ex.
Just like all of us, Albert has been figuring this out as the situation quickly unfolds.
When one gets divorced we are reminded often, and it’s become ingrained in my head, to ‘do what’s in the best interest of the children.’Denise Albert, currently quarantined with one very interesting modern family.
Denise has another important factor to consider–she is a breast cancer survivor. She’s currently in great health, yet her battle isn’t so far in her rear-view mirror that she can’t consider it.
She does a great job going through the thought process that led to this set up.
Staying in New York City didn’t seem like a good choice for her or her boys.
It also didn’t sound like a good option for her sons’ step-sisters. The girls were having a Spring Break vacation in Vermont with their dad.
When he came up with the idea of everyone renting a house in Vermont, well, no one could come up with a reason why they shouldn’t all pile in.
So there they are.
All around the same dinner table.
There for each other.
There for the kids.
How is this all going to work?
Albert says she really doesn’t know. “Will we eat together? Family yoga? Morning hikes? Dinner drinks? How will it all work? There is anxiety. But we are doing it in the best interest of the kids. “
What do you think? Could you do it? Could you quarantine with your ex? How about with his new spouse and her ex?
Could you do it for the kids?
