Is it unreasonable to refuse to reside in the same town where your ex-spouse lives?

Is it unreasonable to refuse to buy a home in the same town or city that an ex-spouse lives in even though it is an affordable location?

Not if residing in the same town/city in which your ex-spouse resides will prove to be more trouble to you and/or your minor children than its worth. How could that be?

If one of the reasons you divorce your spouse was to reduce or eliminate contact and interaction with your spouse, then living in close proximity to your ex-spouse, and thus increasing the odds of coming into contact/interacting with your ex-spouse would be counterproductive, would defeat at least one main purpose of you seeking divorce.
