Divorces can be pretty hard on families and individuals when they happen. Some get married, get divorced, and end up absolutely hating each other for the rest of their lives. But, there are others who defy the odds and decide that maybe marriage isnâ€™t for them—but, they can still be friends. This is vital for couples who are going to remain in each otherâ€™s lives, especially when they have kids.
One man posted a status on Facebook about his ex-wifeâ€™s new engagement and itâ€™s going viral because itâ€™s definitely out of the ordinary. While many believe that an ex-husband may be bitter and salty that his ex-wife is moving on, Blake Higginbotham has a different mentality on this. He wrote:
This is my ex wife. The mother of my 3 children. The woman who brought all 3 of my children into this world.

To anyone divorced, I encourage you with all of me to try and look at this from a different angle. Just because you didnÂ’t workout as husband and wife doesnÂ’t mean you canÂ’t be mom and dad.

Many people online were shocked and almost emotional over the bond that Blake and his ex-wife still have, and how they have worked to keep their friendship civil and alive to make sure that their kids have good role models in their lives.
We totally agreeÂ—this is how itÂ shouldÂ be.
