What would you do?

My husband's ex-wife is telling everyone that I am his mistress that he left her for. I didn't even meet him until they had been seperated for 8 months and then we were friends for a long time. What would you say to her?

  • Don't say anything. You will be the bigger person and she will look like the fool continuing to talk about you and her ex

  • I'd let her keep talking until she slips up.

  • Nothing. It doesn't matter what she thinks. Her marriage to your husband is over. Don't let her pettiness spoil your day. Anyone who knows you will already know that what she is saying isn't true. Just be the bigger person and let it go. I doubt there is anything you could say to make her change her mind anyway. In time she'll find someone new and she'll get over her past.

  • She just wants sympathy. Feel sorry for her that she has to be like that and move on.

  • She doesn't deserve your attention; acting like that indicates that she's desperate for attention/sympathy. You know the truth, and that's all that matters.

  • I wouldn't say a thing to her let her run her mouth all she wants. You know the truth and your Hubby knows the truth so that is all that matters. Don't go to her level she wants you to play into her drama and that is not what you need or want. Leave it alone. She will get over it.

  • Nothing, she doesn't deserve your time and energy.

  • i wouldn't say anything. who cares. if someone confronts you, simply laugh... you don't need to defend yourself against baseless accusations and you don't need to explain anything. anyone who is immature enough to participate in her drama isn't worth wasting your time worrying about their opinions
