A man named Blake Higginbotham taught the internet a lesson by congratulating his ex-wife, Heather, with whom he has three children, after she got engaged.
On September 12, 2018, Blake proved that a divorced doesn't necessarily mean that a relationship between two former lovers has to be toxic.
The father-of-three took to his Facebook account to share a very mature response to Heather's engagement and it has quickly gone viral.

THEY WERE HAPPY ONCE
According to Blake, a small business owner from Texas, he and Heather were quite young when they tied the knot. After that, the children came but their happiness didn't last.
Their relationship was getting worse and worse and they ended up filing for divorce. Now, three years later, the bitterness is gone and they have a healthy agreement between them.
Despite not being husband and wife anymore, they are still focused on raising their children the right way and, for that, they decided to support each other.
This led Blake to congratulate Heather on her engagement. He recognized her happiness and how in love she was with her new partner, who he considers to be 'a great guy.'
"He’s great to my kids and they love him to death. As a father, I couldn’t ask for anything more. I sincerely wish you both the best."

PUTTING THEIR CHILDREN FIRST ABOVE THEIR INTERESTS
Blake claimed that he was grateful for many things, including their relationship, and advised anyone getting divorced, or already divorced, to not hold onto negative energies.
His post was seen by Heater, who didn't waste time saying that they were a team, and that although rocky at times, their co-parenting relationship couldn't be better.
Unfortunately, not every breakup can be like this; Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are proof of it, and their divorce process has been dragging for quite a while now.
Their relationship is very toxic and it has been reported that Angelina almost lost custody of her children because she refused to let Pitt be a part of their lives.
