What does your husband think? Honestly, he should be the one having the conversation with her. I agree with you that she should be contributing but it is hubby's place to approach the issue. My ex husband's second wife, so my son's first step mother felt it was her place to speak for my ex about everything. She would refer to my son as "our" son... meaning that he was hers... yeah, that didn't fly. My answer to her was that if my son's father wanted a say in what was going on he would contact me or I would make the decisions like our divorce papers stated and he would get the bills..... good luck.
