    How to survive a divorce:

No sex with Ex, and don't give advice unless asked.

Keep contacts, few, brief, polite, for business, for parenting.

Don't ask for favors. Expect little from Ex. Take responsibility for yourself.
Use reason and be open to reason. Yield only to principle, not pressure.  Direct your anger at the behavior not your Ex.
Never arrive at Ex's unexpectedly, late, or intoxicated.
Don't speak badly of Ex near kids. Or make kids messengers, spies, or let them manipulate you.
Pay all dues and supports in full on time.
Visitation is for the kids! Help them feel secure, loved and good about themselves.
Take care of your mind, body and spirit. If you need help - get it! Don't go it alone.
Healing takes time. Love yourself. Love your kids. Spend time with people who care about you.
