Question Of The Day: Should Exes Put Their Differences Aside For The Sake Of Their Kids?

Former husband-and-wife duo Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe put their break-up behind them to join and support their son Deacon on May 14.

The exes looked relaxed and happy as they cheered on Deacon during his big soccer game, five years after their marriage ended acrimoniously. It was great to see them team up for their son, but are they doing the right thing?

They had a difficult split; Ryan, 35 moved on super quick with actress Abbie Cornish (it was rumored he cheated on Reese, 36).

Reese remarried in March, to agent Jim Toth.

But there was no sign of any animosity on Saturday. They seemed relaxed in each others’ company, laughing and joking together.

We loved seeing this fractured family come together for a good cause. What do you think HollyMoms?

Could and should you shrug off past problems to present a united front for your kids…. or is better to show your them your strong and stick to your guns?
