I have 4 children total, 2 who are teens 14 and 16 and 2 who are grown and out on their own (20 and 24). Me and my ex have recently filed for divorce, I found him cheating. He has stayed with his mistress. We have a temporary order that says that the 2 of our children who our minors have to go to his home once a week for dinner. He says they show his girlfriend no respect at all. The ignore that she is there (literally, they won't speak to her sometimes even if she speaks to them) makes references to her being a whore. My ex has a problem that our 14 year old is dating (just has a boyfriend, they are not allowed to go anywhere on there own and as they are both 14, they couldn't anyway) he told her he didn't want her dating and she said "at least I'm not married to someone else while I am dating him". There have been many instances like this one. My ex comes complaining to me about it, like he wants me to play bad cop and stick up for him and his girlfriend. I tell him that if they are in his home, it's his job to monitor his behavior. I also explained that they are angry and hurt, we were married for 26 years, their whole lives and one day I catch him cheating and he leaves me and they he has lost their respect with his behavior.Answer Question

I'm sorry... but how does he expect they would act?? While it may be brutal they are being honest. HIS actions have hurt them terribly - not your actions. He needs to be a man and deal with the consequences of his actions. He needs to be the one to deal with this... it's his mess!!
