MY Ex-Wife . . .

I call her MY Ex-wife. Why? Because I am the one who has to deal with her EVERY day. To give you a quick run down of the situation, My husband was married to HER and they have two children together. She ventured out about eight months after their second child was born, to see if the grass was greener on the other side. When she found out it was not, she wanted to waltz back into mother and wife hood and pick up where she left off. My husband and I agree on one thing . . . trust and honesty. Once you have broken that, it can't be rekindled. His family, on the other hand, thought he should forgive and forget. I have been fighting for my place in this family for five years now..she is and probably always will be a thorn in my side. I swear it has affected me mentally, deally with her on a daily basis. For awhile, I spoke to her every day, until she copped an attitude towards me. I listened to the down-putting of my in-laws, my husband and even her own mother and grandmother. Once it was directed toward me, I cut all ties to communication. It is alot more peaceful now and she still cals everyday, but I do not answer. I swore when I was a young adult to NEVER marry anyone with an ex-wife or children. But when you get older, that becomes very difficult to find. So, you see now, why I call her MY ex-wife. To all of those womwn who have ex-wives . . . Cheers!!!

Hehe, I totally identify! I had the same situation, but my daughter is a college sophomore now, so I rarely have to talk to her mom anymore!
