See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I would say I get along with my ex and that seems to be abnormal to some. My oldest daughter is from my ex husband, he and I have not always agrred but we do always place her first. He became homeless after losing his job a yr after our divorce. He got laid off and could not find another job so I let him move in with me for 18 month while he got on his feet. He found a job after 3 months but still need time to pay of debt. He would bring his GF around, who he has been with for 3 yrs and i brought my fiance around and we would all have dinner together with all the kids. They would all stay over and not once a fight. I moved to a new house with my fiance and all our children but my ex and his gf come by and eat and hang with us often. He is the godfather to my youngest son and helped me with him for the first 24 months of my sons life because my sons father wanted nothing to do with him. My ex still takes my son one weekend a month and thay have a tight relationship even tho my son thinks my fiance is his dad. We just all had a bbq at our house and invited my ex his gf and my daughters half brother then all went to the pool. We went to court because of the divorce but we do not follow the parenting time we do every other weekend at his house unless there is a special occation then we will change and add time. Like her half brother is only in town for a week so he has had her on my weekend so she can see him. I believe this has made things easier on my daughter and we never use her as a pawn, Communication and honesty works for the best.
Is this a strange relationship and abnormal?
