During their time together, Jim formed a close relationship with Jenny's son, Evan. When they broke up, Jenny says she handled her 8-year-old with special care. "To me, he was number one," she says.

Because Jenny never sold her house, she says there wasn't a big adjustment in their living situation. "Evan was homeschooled there, and so he went there every day," she says. "There was a little bit of a safety net there."

Jenny says the biggest challenge was deciding what to say to Evan. "I'm really big on being really honest and truthful, and I just said, 'We are still going to love Jimmy with all of our hearts, but we're going to stay in this house while he's in that house and still have love hearts for one another,'" she says. "He seemed to really like that and was able to move forward."
