I mean we have 2 kids together. So we are going to spend some time together. But, my ex lives next door and is here quite often. It is nice for me because I don't always have to be alone with the kids and we can still co-parent. But would it be a deal breaker for you?

It's not weird at all. My aunt is pretty close to her ex and both parents love their son very much. They take turns in caring for the son and discuss problems with each other all the time. They also have dinner together with the son. Having a close relationship with your ex would probably make your kids happier. Many couples in bad terms argue all therime which kind of makes life a lot harder for their children. Take for example, my other aunt. She and her husband divorced for a about 10 years or so. Their daughter hates both the mom and dad. She live with her mom but treats her mom like ... (fill that in yourself) eventhough her mom works long hours just to pay for her. Her mom also pays her ex mother in law because out of the whole family, this was the one person that my cousin actually thought cared about her. She does not go to family dinners because she thinks everyone hates her. So yeah, I think staying in good terms is good for everyone, one less person to hate, one more friend, and your kids can prob be happy.0
