  • Thank you both. It's really nice to have a good relationship cause theres no drama and lord knows theres enough drama in the world. We were preggo at the same time as well that was pretty cool that the children got what they both wanted. My children are my world and his children are as well.

  • same here, even the kids school thought it was odd that me and bm were hangin together at kids concerts plays if i showed up first i save her a seat and same when shes first. my dh and her have 2 girls ages 10 and 9 and she knows i love them and to my our 3 year old shes auntie and my son adores her lol. now at times i do have issues but we talk. and i get her an x mas gift from the kids and she does to it makes life easyer and better and the kids see that we talk so theres no playing each other. my dh dosent care for her but i keep the peace and will deal mostly with her and thats ok. better to be nice/ friends then enemys.

  • I probably could have a great relationship with his ex. I adore their 2 grown daughters and she is very nice. We have certain characteristics in common as we are both very creative. I told her that in another time and universe, we could probably be the best of friends. However, for now, it seems weird. She dumped him for a friend of the family and my SO is paying her alimony for 5 more years. The morality of her accepting his money after she chose to leave - I just can't reconcile that. So we are cordial and friendly when we see each other at events. But that is about it.

  • Not only is it not weird, it also makes a great environment for all the kids involved. It's always a good thing when the adults all get along and I think that you guys are giving them a great example to grow up with.

  • No, I think it's great. We have dinner w/ my DH's ex and her husband, go skiing with a couple of his ex-girlfriends and their families, have dinner w/ my ex and his wife.... My attitude is if you liked them enough to date them, why do you have to hate them once you broke up?

  • No, count your blessings. It's good being in a non-typical situation.
