How friendly should the hubs be with the ex-wife?

When my husband and I were first together, he and his ex rarely spoke and when they did there was usually a lot of yelling and swearing involved.

Does your OH "punish" you if you say or do something they don't like?

10 years down the track and I've only just started to notice that I actually get "punished" for saying or doing the "wrong" thing, particularly when it comes to the Skids.

PREGNANT: now I resent my SD, need help.

I'm 25, and happily married. My DH has a 11 month old daughter. We dating before she was born. Her BM wasn't sure who her father was. She was a very careless woman.

This is not ok!!

I have three BS ages 17-9, occasionally they will lie to get out of trouble. Is it annoying, of course it is. Do I let them think it's ok, never. My SO will get a little bit too upset about it.
