I’ve now been on my own for 8 years and have a fairly amicable relationship with my ex. In all that time I’ve not met anyone else as I’ve been too busy bringing up my kids who see their dad every other weekend. He’s had a few partners but only one who met and spent much time with my kids and at the time it was like a stab in the heart. I’e just found out hes now seeing someone new and it sounds quite serious and a every time the kids go to his she is there. When they come home I get loads of she said and she did and she’s going to strighten my hair from my daughter. It breaks my heart to think of my kids with another woman playing the mum role even tho she has her own kids who seem to be with their dad much more. And to make it worse she is friends with quite a few of my friends and its all a bit too close to home. I know I’m being stupid but can’t help feeling this way.
Nope you aren’t alone in this. My husband moved straight out of our home into the home of his new partner. She has 5 kids of her own – 3 of them at my daughter’s school – and my husband is playing dad to them and expecting our daughter to treat his new partner as mum when she is there. He had her writing a Mother’s Day card for her and has told me I can’t go to our daughter’s parents evening as he wants his new partner to go instead. (The school are not happy with this either to be fair but can’t physically stop him). It’s all incredibly painful for me and confusing for our daughter. The only good thing is that she lives with me most of the time and we have a good open honest relationship. She tells me everything bless her and I can only hope it stays that way.
No I know exactly how you feel my ex was with her when he left me and my 2 boys and last week sent me a picture of them with the boys saying yeah it looks like there unhappy you f**king physco she’s more of a woman than u ever were. They don’t have a choice she’s always there too and he now takes her up the school to meet my youngest from school with him.
You can make a separate appointment to see the teacher/s for parents evening I haven’t been with my ex since we split it’s too verbally/emotionally abusive on his behalf that i dont feel comfortable to do it with him.
