Why won't Husband's ex-wife let go of his family??Submitted by hoshort on Tue, 06/01/2010 - 6:59am
My husband and I have been married for 10 years and although his ex-wife made the beginning of our marriage a struggle, we don't have to deal with her much anymore. My step-son is 19. We have found out over the years that my husband's ex still tlaks to his parents and siblings - even sending them pictures of her and her new family. She was never close to my husband's family even when they were married. Recently, his brother just had a new baby girl. Now the ex-wife has friend requested them on Facebook "so she can get pictures of the baby". My husband asked his brother why he acceptted and he said she has been bugging him and sending messages for the last two months. He was tired of her bothering him. My husband sent her a message asking her to please move on with her life and her family and leave his family alone. She responded by saying she would "talk to his Mother and see what she wanted her to do". I could understand their being contact if they had been close when married - but they were not and all of his family lives many hours away. She has caused such a riff even between my husband and his son. It seems like a control thing to me. She says it is perfectly normal for her to keep in contact with his family because they are her son's family. My husband is also frustrated with his family for not respecting his wishes. I know for myself, I have no contact with my ex's family. If they need to know things concerning my son, they go through my ex. How about anyone else. Does this seems crazy to you??
