Kardashian fans could not help but notice one surprising
Guest at Kourtney's 40 th birthday party recently: her ex-husband,
Scott Disick And it was not even that surprising to see him in the guest list.
The couple has a history of peaceful coexistence and sharing of responsibility
their children together. They may not be together anymore, but Kourtney
and Scott even go on vacation together. It's almost too surreal to be
Meanwhile, other members of the Kar-Jenner clan have not had such
an easy time finding a common ground with their exes. Khloe Kardashian and
Tristan Thompson split a few
months ago after several incidents of infidelity, including that one time
with Kylie Jenner's best friend, Jordyn Woods. Thomspon did make a cameo at his
and Khloe's daughter's first birthday party, but it was super awkward for all involved.
So how do Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick make their
unique situation work It's a simple matter of adult.
They want to set a good example for other parents
When Kourtney and Scott first

Party in Mexico, none of them had any clue they'd eventually become the
standard for successful co-parenting while separated, yet here we are. The pair
broke up, got back together, had a baby, broke up, got back together, had
another baby, and then another, and all the while while keeping the drama going. The

In a 2018 episode of Keeping
Up With the Kardashians Kourtney tells Scott he should not be going into
her bedroom without permission. Disick agreed
saying: "There's obviously some
the boundaries that we both need respect, and I do not want you to be

together . Scott Disick, his girlfriend, Sofia Richie, and the couple's three

their children to be happy, healthy people is more important than vendettas or revenge
As Kourtney Kardashian has said Instagram for Thanksgiving
