Husband's ex-wife still social with former in-laws
My husband's ex-wife seems to thrives on maintaining close ties with his family. They've been divorced for 5 years now, and we've been married for over a year, but still, she's quite social with just about everyone in my husband's large, extended family.
I know this is partly because she was married to my husband for 12 years & party because they have a child together. BUT, the larger reason is that she refuses let go and is hanging on with blood fingernails. She is now TWICE divorced, but she used to bring her former SECOND husband around to socialize with my husband's family. How strange is that? No wonder they're no longer married!
How do some of you deal with the tensions that are created when the ex won't let go of the former in-laws?? It's a frustrating and (at times) demoralizing situation.
And mind you, I know she's not entirely to blame- my husband's family bears some responsibility for inviting her over, accepting her invitations, etc. But sheesh! When is the line drawn and enough is enough? My hubby and I certainly don't socialize with our former in-laws!
