Courteney Cox says her split from David Arquette has made them better parents to their young daughter, Coco.The two separated in 2010, but regularly meet up to take little Coco on days out.
The actor is convinced the split has improved their parenting capabilities, reported femalefirst.co.uk.
"We weren't really dealing with what needed to be dealt with, which was how to stay married and be true intimate partners," she told Britain's Stella magazine.
"Now we're separate we're able to talk about all our resentments and the things we should have listened to each other on."
"We kind of know where it went wrong, and how we felt ourselves drifting apart. So now we have this really great, open relationship. We speak to each other all the time. If we don't see each other in a week it's a big deal. We're more patient with each other," she added.
