My husband and I are getting ready to separate. We have a 10 year old son. Husband doesn't want to leave house since the divorce is my idea. But suggested that we get an apartment, he and I rotate staying between house and apartment so that our son doesn't have to leave the house. It would just be for a short period. In a way it sounds like a good idea but just not sure if it is. Has anyone tried this before?

It's worked for some people, but takes lots of money to maintain.

I'm not sure why it would cost more money, assuming that the parents intend to live apart from each other anyway.
And it does seem to me that it would be easier on the kid to be able to stay in one place.

If it were me I think I'd still want to maintain separate bedrooms in each place though--I think it would seem weird to me to be "sharing" a bedroom space even if we were alternating.
