Kate Hudson is no fool, nor does she have stardust in her eyes when she says that her divorce was "the best thing that happened to her."
The Fools Gold star and Black Crowes musician Chris Robinson divorced in 2007 but are devoted parents to their young son, Ryder.
Hudson told Cosmopolitan magazine that since separating, the two have found a rhythm that is quite harmonious and certainly not as out of tune as their relationship was when they lived together as man and wife.
“Look — Chris and I are still basically living together! We’ve figured it out. I mean, obviously, nothing’s perfect, but I could never look at our divorce as a mistake. If anything, it’s the best thing that ever happened to us," she said.
When a divorce is amicable, as many today strive it to be, the parents are in and out of each other's houses and some share the same domicle, but the parents leave while the child has the consistant home.
The secret, as she reveals, is to "figure it out." And with the help of places like firstwivesworld and more information on mediation and co-parenting courses, couples may break-up but simultaneously build a new family structure that can be quite strong.
