Living in your estranged husband's condo complex?

OK, this is going to sound just a bit nuts. But when we separated and sold our house, we ended up living in condos. We are about 14 miles apart. We see each other pretty much daily for our son's sake. He takes him to school every morning and we each get him two days at a time.
Well,I really like his complex and so does Jake. We are talking about my moving into one of the condos -- not too close to him -- for Jake's sake, for convenience sake, etc. I have talked t him at length about boundaries -- not really about dating because neither of is has, does or want to -- but to respect each other's privacy and days "off". OK - how bad of an idea is this?

    I honestly don't know because I don't know where you both are at right now, emotionally. Would it hurt either of you to live that close to each other? Would it be possible that boundaries wouldn't be respected? Eventually you both will date again if you aren't getting back together, how hard will that be on the two of you and a potential date to be this close?

    Just things to think about. I think in the right circumstances this could work.

      I think you sound like a very intelligent, mature woman Laura and if your sons dad is the same it's not a bad idea at all. You need to do what's best for your child. This is the perfect time to listen to your gut though. I think we all have an inherent feeling about this kind of thing. Moving is a long term thing and you know the father better than anyone else. If YOU think it will work, go for it!
