Selfless Dad Still Mows Ex-Wife’s Lawn After Being Divorced For 28 Years

For many couples, marriage just doesn’t work out and they inevitably to get go their separate ways. This, of course, can go one of two ways. Either you decide to end things amicably and you get along anyway (whether it’s for the sake of your history or your children), or it turns into a bitter divorce and everything becomes a mess. The latter course is all too common, but it’s always nice to see two people who were once in love agreeing that they’ve outgrown each other learning to live as friends.

One daughter,Codie LaChelle McPhateshared a touching set of photos on Facebook of her father, who has been divorced from her mother for 28 years. Although Codie’s parents decided marriage wasn’t for them, her father still gets up and comes to mow his ex-wife’s lawn.

This is my dad, mowing my mom’s lawn. They’ve been divorced 28 years.

My mom has bad knees, and my step dad works out of town. When my younger siblings questioned “Why is your dad mowing moms lawn?” I told them “Because, She needed help, and he knew she couldn’t get out here to do it, so he did”

This is co parenting. This is how lucky I am to have 4 parents who respect each other, and know that at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is showing your children (Even ones that are 32 years old) how to treat people, and how to love your family, no matter how it came together.

It’s an incredibly touching story. It’s sweet to see that even after thee divorce, her father cares to help his ex-wife, especially because she has bad knees. Codie’s right, this is exactly how you co-parent.

People on Facebook were incredibly touched to see such a loving, caring family dynamic.

It just goes to show youdivorce doesn’thave to be messy.
