My ex recently suggested that a few times a month we have dinner together with our daughters. His reasoning is that he wants them to see us getting along and showing them that no matter what we will always be a family even if we aren't all together under one roof. He thinks its important for them to grow up seeing us still being kind, caring and respecting eachother.
The only problems i have is that i dont want to give them the wrong impression that we are getting back together because rite now its just not something that is gonna happen. Secondly we didn't end things because one of us didn't love eachother or anything he just put work first too much and i wanted him more family oriented and to put at least our girls first but he just could never stop working! I dont want to give him hope that now that he wants to try to change things will go back to normal although he says thats not what he's trying to do.
what would you do?

he WAS putting his family first. everyone thinks times have changed but they haven't. a man is and probably will want to pay and take care for his family. Do you have a roof over your head? food in your stomach? a car? if helps provide he's doing it right. family means even in stressful work situations you still stick together.0

I admire your ex. He wants to be very much in his daughters' lives and yours as well. There is nothing wrong with a man who works too hard but you have to talk to him about having false hopes of getting back together. Just respect the fact, he wants his kids to grow up with a loving and doting father. Your kids are blessed to have a selfless father like him. Many kids from broken homes wish they have a father like him0
