Hollywood's "Ben and Jen" show signs of amicable custody battle

For parents, making the decision to divorce can be difficult. Many Orlando parents cite their decision to stay together being due to the kids. While this may be best in some instances, unhealthy marriages may negatively affect children. Wherever you and your spouse are at in the divorce process, it can be positive to see couples that seem to be divorcing amicably.

Hollywood stars "Ben and Jen" have made tabloids over and over with their commitment to what appears to be an amicable divorce and custody arrangement. The couple announced their decision to separate several years ago, and while preparing for the split, the couple has been living on the same property (in separate residences), co-parenting their children. Ben has even received help for his addiction issues, even praising his estranged wife for her role in their children's lives.

These two have even vacationed together (with the kids) while hammering out the details of their divorce and child custody arrangement. It just goes to show that while a marriage may not be what it once was, it is possible to be civil to each other. This takes work from both parties, as both need to sacrifice to make an amicable custody arrangement and divorce process possible. Working collaboratively can really benefit the divorce process and the well-being of the children.

Of course, this may not be an option for everyone. However, it is good to know that the possibility exists. It is often in everyone's best interest to consider how an amicable custody arrangement would be preferable to high-stress situation.
