Pictures of Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry With Daughter in London

If Your Parents Split, Did They Remain Friends?

Halle Berry knows she probably doesn't want to spend the rest of her life with one person, but it's likely ex Gabriel Aubry will be in her life forever. Cameras caught Gabriel, Halle, and their daughter Nahla looking like one happy (and beautiful) family in the UK this week, checking out the sites of London.

The September issue cover girl discussed the situation in Vogue: "We have always been friends, we're still friends, we love each other very much, and we both share the love of our lives. And we are both 100 percent committed to being the best parents we can be."

If your parents split, does Halle's plan for coparenting reflect your experience, or does it sound too good to be true?

They divorced about 15 years ago, when I was 10, and they haven't gotten along since. My mom bad mouths him still, and I hate it, he could care less about her. My ex (never married) and I don't get along well at all, but he definitely causes more problems in the relationship than me. I'm hoping we'll be able to be friends in the future, for our little one's sake.

When my father died in the hospital last year, I was holding his hand - and my mother, from whom he'd been divorced for 20 years, was holding the other one. Says it all :) I'm very grateful for the years they spent making efforts, which finally turned into real friendship, respect and affection. We kept having dinner as a family once a week, and we always spent Christmas and birthdays together. Neither of them remarried. Actually, he never stopped loving her. A few days before he died, he was all loopy from brain metastases, and he asked me if I thought she'd like to go to Mexico with him at the end of the summer. When I told my mom, we cried for hours. I want to be loved LIKE THAT!

Mine weren't friends for years and had a lot of bitterness toward each other, but recently they became, if not good friends, comfortable and friendly to each other. When there are big events, they're great with each other and invite the other to things like Christmas parties, etc. It's actually their respective new spouses that "conspired" to get them on good terms again, which I find really amusing, but it totally worked!

My parents are divorced. Good riddance.

My parents divorced in 2003 after 20 years of marriage. They still cannot speak to each other without arguing (it mostly comes from my dads end -- my mom can hold the conversation but my dad just feels he needs to argue about anything!). I would hope that if my BF and I were to ever split, that we could co-parent like Halle and Gabriel. I think it's amazing what they're doing for the sake of their daughter.

My parents divorced about 20 years ago. They have nothing to do with each other except when I visit them in Hawaii. My dad will usually pick me up from my mom's house one day for lunch or dinner, and if she or my step-dad is around, they're pretty civil. I sorta feel bad for my dad because he knows I prefer to be with my mom when I visit, but he really screwed up, so yeah...

No, not at all. They can't even have a phone conversation without it turning into some sort of argument. If they speak at all. But me and my brothers hardly to talk to my father at all either, so,...

My parents divorced almost 20 years ago and it's just within the last couple years that they are able to be in the same room together, and even that is always awkward. they had a terrible relationship (i was a little kid when they got divorced and my ONLY memory of them together is them screaming at each other) and will probably never be friends. how they were married for almost 10 years is beyond me.

My parents split up last year after nearly 10 years of marriage. As of right now they rarely speak and when they do it often turns into a fight. Its a good thing my brother and I are young adults because if we were still kids and my parents had to see each other it wouldn't be good.

My parents divorced after 25 years of marriage - almost 15 years ago. They still can't get along at all, though they have managed to be in the same room for a few major events (graduations and my wedding) - they were on opposite ends, though!

Growing up my parents remaind friendly. My dad and stepdad were even co-coaches of our t-ball team! But now though, I know the truth. My dad can't stand my mom because of things she did during their marriage, and put up a good front for the sake of me and my sister.

My parents are happily married after 31 years, so I don't have specific comments with respect to the question. But I must say, it must be hard for Halle and Gabriel to be this close of friends...I mean, I look at them here and I wonder what is the difference between what they're doing and what they did when they were technically together?!

They were lovers! They started a clandestine relationship after they separated. At first they hated each other, but then somewhere along the lines they started their clandestine relationship.
