Most Helpful Girl
It really really depends on the couple. It can be extremely trying at times. Especially when past issues creep up. There's now two households, bills are split, etc etc. If communication breakdown was a problem in the marriage it will be during separation. However, I think its... make that hope it's possible to get past that. In the beginning and for a while emotions are still raw. It is possible to coparent effectively. Just takes work.
