After going through the posts, it is easily surmised that no matter how kind or tolerant one is, the SKids will pit their biological parent in a triangle of hell. No wonder second marriages fail at a higher rate than first marriages. Honestly, I feel that playing ignorant to these skids is the best policy. Play up the marriage on Facebook, constantly verbally praise your partner (even when you don't necessarily feel like it), in front of them. That is real ammo that they can't handle. Anybody have other ideas to psychologically use to better our stance? How did it work?
