My dh's ex wife texts him constantly and it drives me nuts! Like in a how dare you contact my man more than me in a day kind of way. Dh does not want to spend $ to block her # so that is out. We have asked her to send emails unless it is an emergency but she never complies, despite the fact that email is not an inconvenience for her. She is just being contradictory. Besides that she asks us for $ all the time. Truth is she has the $ and is a tightwad. She will send sd to our house, obviously needing a doctor b/c she wants us to pay. It's stupid to make sd suffer but the ex is VERY tight & selfish. She asks us to send $ to help out with extracurricular activities. Isn't that what CS is for? Personally, I would never ask my ex for $ and would keep contact to a minimum. Do you ask for $ beyond your legal entitlement? Have you found yourself looking for any reason to contact your ex and when did you realize you look the fool?Answer Question

No, i would never EVER ask my Ex for money. Although, we have joint legal/physical custody & told the judge that neither of us needed child support from the other & she said OK. So, neither of us are obligated to pay each other anything. When she does have extra curricular activities, i will ask her dad if he wants to pay for part of it. Sometimes he does, sometimes he doesn't. But, we're financially OK. Neither of us need money from each other. If he is already paying child support, then he has no obligation to give her more money. I talk to my ex a few times a week. I have no desire to conversate with him, unless it has to do with my DD. I will avoid him at all costs if i have no reason to talk to him...lol.

Honestly, I do contact my ex about things that concern our son. He very rarely participates with anything our son is doing, but I am not going to let him be able to tell my son he didn't because he did not know. Will I stop? No. The reason, like I said, my ex uses I didn't know you had a game or a play or whatever all the time. Then my little one was upset with me (Mommy why didn't you tell Daddy?) So, now I text, and tell my son, hey I sent your Dad a text about your game. He knows you have one. As far as the money, I get no child support, but yeah, I do let him know when we owe on a Dr. bill or when he has extracurriculars that need paid for. That being said, he never pays them. But, if I got child support, I would not expect him to pay anything while my child was with me. But, when he was with him, yeah I would expect him to get what he needed. But, I would never not take my child to a Dr! That is crazy!!!
