God I can't stand BM. I am so good to her kid. SO. GOOD. To her kid. I enjoy being in his life and helping BF take care of him. And he loves me. I've never done anything negative to her, ever. Even though she's emailed me at WORK with passive aggressive statements, I was still very polite and said I want to stay out of her and BF's dialogue. She constantly belittles BF and nags him to parent in very specfiic ways. She's so easily set off with abusive language and threats and crossing boundaries that I told BF we need to pull back on how much we interact with her.
Ever since EX1 and EX2 and SD21 made their disagreement with us getting engaged be known, I've been on a mission: learning how to disengage from them and their drama and still hold onto my relationship. This sh*t is hard. We have broken up in the past due to this drama with them. FH has a tendency to run when it gets tough because that's all he's ever done. But he doesn't want to continue that behavior and he also doesn't want to let them dictate anything we do. He wants me by his side at every event, even if they don't like it.
My daughter is expecting her first baby. She had a baby reveal for the immediate family which did not include my hubby or my former husbands gf. My ex has never met my hubby of two years face to face yet. My hubby is great to me and my kids and would do anything for us. My ex is passive aggressive and drinks a lot. He was diagnosed with cancer shortly after the divorce and is very bitter towards my new hubby. My daughter explained to me that she did not want my hubby at the reveal because she didn’t want drama with her father.
