Do You Continue Family Dinners After Divorce?

As divorce becomes more prevalent in our society, people are finding new ways to cope and new ways to define their families. It is no longer considered odd to be good friends with your ex, and some parents have even continued family dinners with their children and their exes.

Family dinners have traditionally been a focal point of American life. They are a time in which the entire family gets together and discusses their days with each other. Now, as divorces are changing the structure of families, some are opting to continue the family dinner, even after divorce. This arrangement is especially helpful for people who share day to day custody or for those who have visitation rights and may have a longer commute between parents.

As anyone who still has family dinners with an ex will tell you, it requires a great deal of patience and maturity. You have to be able to rise above any of your feelings towards your ex so that you can be co-parents together. Even when it is only for a meal, it's good for the children to see their parents interacting in a healthy and mature way.
