  • I am but the mother is an awful woman and won't let us visit with DH's daughter. She is 13 and we are taking her to court to allow visitation and summers with us since the daughter is now 13 and has a say in things.

  • Wonderful and it helps that I wasn't the reason of their divorce. Even they get along without animosity.

  • Yep. Non existent. We hate each other. However, even though she is more than willing to bash me to the children, I will never say a bad word about her in front of them, or around someone that would repeat it, and I am always cordial when I am forced to meet with her face to face.

    Now, my children's step-mom and me get along fabulously. She is smart, beautiful, and a great role-model for my children. I am EXTREMELY blessed to have her. Sometimes we get jealous of each other, but it is nothing we can't express to the other calmly.

  • I am a step mom, the relationships with the children's mothers were either non existent, or grew to be polite/cordial when we HAD to be in the same place. My step children are all adults now, I am glad.
