Based on your career, housing situation and custody arrangement you may have less time with your kids.  If you are the one who moved from the primary residence, you may have less of your children’s personal belongings at your place.  This makes a rough summer when they are with you unless you prepare.  



Your marriage is over.  Your children will always be the love of your life, despite being the children of a love gone bad.  Ya.  It's not easy to think of it that way, but it's a reality divorced parents are forced to accept.  

Many couples that separate do so because living with one another is not in the best interest for each of them and their family.  As the divorce progresses, emotions run high and living in the same household can lead to otherwise avoidable confrontations and stress.  Many divorcing parents are overwhelmed by the division of marital property and determination of support & custody arrangements.
