I have a female roommate. Together we pay less each for the house rental but more in total so we have a very nice place. We do not bang and never will. She is very attractive but that would queer the deal. Our kids get along okay.
It's a tricky situation to be sure and if her asshole BF keeps coming around I may have to move. He wanted us to move in together while he completed his divorce and then they'd move in together somewhere else. So, right, it takes 2 years to finalize a divorce. I call bullshit
it definitely can take 2 or more years to finalize a divorce
but good move on not moving in all together
1 thing i learned as a friend, family member, and accountant to many people who got divorced......EVERYONE with significant contact with divorcing people gets negatively affected
for example, i handle the tax matters for a few friends that have businesses, one of those friends and his wife (both own businesses which i handled at the time) were divorcing over the course of 2.5 years
our office had to deal with crazy phone calls, non/late payment of bills due to their disputes and such, bickering btw the 2 which would bleed into our shit
