Jealousy over the relationship my boyfriend’s ex has with his family.
Little background. My boyfriend has three teenage kids, who have accepted me as their father's new partner. I am the first person my boyfriend has introduce to his family since he separated from his wife 3 years ago.
My boyfriend is a loving father and a reaponsible ex-husband. He is generous to the mother of his kids, her family and common friends. I was also married and unfortunately my ex and I were unable to conceive.
I have tried to be an extremely understanding partner, the three of us (the mother of the kids, my boyfriend and I) have tried our best to have a close relationship for the sake of the kids, which two are over the age of 17.
All kid's birthdays have been hosted at their mother's house as she refuses to come to our home. Therefore, I will be there with both families and take a big, comfortable smile. All for the kids.
The problem I am having is with the relationship his experience-wife has with his family. They will go on trips together, have lunches, get together for Christmas gifts, special events, and some time they will prioritize seen her than us. She is a nice individual, I get it But I wish she could step back and love on with her life! She is besties with my boyfriend's sisters and that relationship makes me uncomfortable.
He doesn't want to talk to his family about it, but he also keeps in touch with her family. Perhaps I am wrong, I just don't know how to deal with it.
