Divorces can be pretty hard on families and individuals when they happen. Some get married, get divorced, and end up absolutely hating each other for the rest of their lives.
But, there are others who defy the odds and decide that maybe marriage isn't for them—but, they can still be friends. This is vital for couples who are going to remain in each other's lives, especially when they have kids.
One man posted a status on Facebook about his ex-wife's new engagement and it's going viral because it's definitely out of the "norm."
While many believe that an ex-husband may be bitter and salty that his ex-wife is moving on, Blake Higginbotham has a different attitude on this. He explained:
This is my ex-wife. The mother of my 3 children. The woman who brought all 3 of my children into this world.
We got married young, had 3 beautiful children, and had a bitter divorce.
3 years later, that relationship is much different. We share the kids evenly and support them in everything they do. We act as a team.
The man she's with is a great guy. He's great to my kids, and they love him to death. As a father, I couldn't ask for anything more. I sincerely wish you both the best. I'm thankful for many things, including the relationship.
To anyone divorced, I encourage you with all of me to try and look at this from a different angle. Just because you didn't work out as husband and wife doesn't mean you can't be mom and dad.
Many people online were in shock, almost overemotional over the bond that Blake and his ex-wife still have and how they have worked to keep their friendship civil and alive to make sure that their kids have good role models in their lives.
