This is the first Mother's Day I've had since I split from my husband...while I wasn't really expecting anything I thought it was rude that he didn't do anything at all. We split up just a few weeks before Father's Day last year and I still bought him something (from the kids, of course) but obviously he knows a 5 year old and a couple 4 year olds can't go buy stuff on their own. Now my boyfriend on the other hand who I've only been with a few months bought me flowers, a new dress and took me out to dinner. My brother still buys a gift for his ex, for his son to give to her, and he even buys her flowers because he says even though he doesn't love her he respects the fact that she brought his son into the world. Everyone else I know who is on good terms with their ex's get at the very least a phone call. I'm not too upset about it, just annoyed.Answer Question

Oh no! Giving up the expectations of gift giving usually happen when you divorce some one.

For the first 6 years after the divorce, I received no gifts from him. Now all of a sudden I get something this year. Of course he just went through a nasty split up, so I suspect he is just looking for a "booty call" Other than that, I've gotten nothing.
it is a rare case that the ex husband still buys gifts for the ex wife.
