I am finding it SO HARD to play the game of being nice and staying "friends" until the divorce is final. So our divorce won't be final until September, and he wants to remain friends. I'm really uncomfortable with the whole friends idea, after all, he has cheated on me repeatedly. It seems to me he sought friendship or a connection elsewhere. Friends don't hurt each other like this. So I try to keep all of our communication about the kids or the business of our divorce and finances. He wants to text and see how I'm doing. He gets cranky and nasty when I say I don't want to communicate. I'm afraid that if I don't play his game that he'll take the uncontested divorce and turn it into an ugly fight. I don't want that. But I am finding it so hard to do the chit chat and be "friends." I'm sure I can hold it together for three months, but it is not easy. I'm tired of navigating his moods. I don't want to have to deal with his insecurities or whatever it is anymore. Anyone else go through this? What did you do to lessen the stress and make it bearable?
