Married, living separately

My husband and I have been together for almost 5 years. We both have children from previous relationships. Our kids have always got along until recently. We decided it was best to split up. We separated for a few months but realized that we were both miserable without each other. After a month of trying to come to an agreement we decided to stay married but live separately for a few years. Until the children are grown. Has anyone ever been through this before? How has it worked out? Did you and your spouse make it after living apart?

I’ve never experienced that, or known anyone else that has. Even if it’s not “normal” don’t get discouraged… do whatever works for you two. Just make sure you are good with communication, and continue to work at a healthy relationship. Every relationship is different and that’s okay!
