hello – my wife and I have recently separated reasonably amicably. We have a 9 year old. We’ve made the decision to ‘nest’ for 2 years – to keep my daughter in the family house so no change for her and we rent a flat nearby and rotate around her (i.e. taking in turns to return to the nest). It’s tough going and has obvious downsides but it’s reassuring to know that the impact on my daughter is as minimal as possible – for now anyway.
