My ex-husband and I get along much better now that we're not married (lol). We've been talking about taking a "new family vacation", basically a regular family vacation but with new wife and live-in boyfriend in tow. While his wife is all for it, my partner is against it. He thinks it's weird and that it would be uncomfortable. He knows how important it is to me and my ex-husband that our children see a good adult example rather than a lot of fighting. Has anyone tried the co-vacation thing? Did it work out? Would you recommend it?

My ex-husband and I frequently take vacations with the children. We are both remarried and always bring along our spouses and their children too. It worked out excellently, and we have some great memories. It feels like we have one big extended family now, and its great to see everyone happy. At first, my new husband thought it was a bit strange too. But he tried it and saw that it was great for the kids, and good for me and my ex too!

Wow, I love that idea. My husband wouldn't go it but my ex and his wife would. My husband is highly jealous of my ex, mainly because my ex is more handsome then my now husband. Silly isn't it. I know our kids would love it as well. Any tips on convincing my husband to give it a go?

I am all for it!! I have been divorced for almost 4 years and remarried for 1 year. I have an 8-year old daughter from my first marriage and her father and I and better friends now than when we were married, too. In this day and age, nothing is weird when it comes to blended families. I think the best thing to do is what seems best for your family and kids. For my situation, my new husband and ex-husband have each other's cell phone numbers and contact each other whenever necessary for our daughter (for pick-up's and drop-off's, etc.) Though we have not gone on a co-vacation, I wouldn't see a problem because I know our daughter would totally enjoy it. But, you have to do what works for you guys.

i would hate it if my parents ever did that- talk about awkward and uncomfortable- thats a terrible idea
