The economy and busted housing market of recent years has left some with roommates they may have never expected: exes. Whether going through a breakup or a divorce, we keep hearing about couples choosing to split ways but stick it out as roomies until their lease is up or their home sells. Do you know of anyone in this scenario? We heard about one couple who divorced and promptly build an interior wall dividing their home in two. We also came across this project (pictured above) that may come in handy in such a living arrangement!
What tips or tricks can you think of to ease the pain of rooming with an ex? Please share in the comments below!
