Exes are alternating periods at home with time in their house which can work well for children and save money if they get along. Divorced couples with children are increasingly turning to an unconventional living arrangement known as “birdnesting” to save money in a time of soaring housing costs. Under the agreement, both parents take turns living in the family home, often on a week-by-week basis, with the rest of the time spent in a house nearby. Lawyers say that clients are coming to them in ever-increasing numbers with such plans because birdnesting – or nesting – is cheaper than maintaining two family-sized homes and provides stability for the couple’s children. What are your thoughts LiveTribers? Why are divorced couples taking turns to live in the family home?
