Biological mum / mother in law
This is slightly off topic to stepparenting but is still relating to the whole blended family issues.
i've been with my partner for almost 2 years, i have a daughter (5) from a previous relationship and my partner has a daughter (3) from a previous relationship.
my main reason for posting is i keep seeing things being posted on facebook by my partners mum - she tags my partner and his ex in things together, she tags his ex's mum in things about loving their grandchildren and i've just seen a comment to someone with her gushing about how well his ex is coping with their daughter and how 'proud' she is of her for coping so well. Considering im also in the same boat as my partner works away all week so im alone with my child all week on my own. Their was also a 'family photo' of my partner, his ex and their daughter left on display in the front room for well into a year in our relationship to the point where i'd mentioned it to my partner so many times that its not nice to see that i refused to go round as it immediately pissed me off. we've recently had a conversation on whether we'll ever have any more kids and he said he doesnt think so... so because we wont ever have a child together - i wont be thought of as fondly as his ex seems to be. Despite the fact that she has also caused nothing but trouble since they split up with kicking off and hacking into my partners app, getting people to screenshot my social media to then post it and slag me off all over hers (she blocked me so i couldnt see obviously).
i want to remove myself from his family as i'm sick of the sun shining out of his ex's arse when she's a manipulative cow at the best of times.
