Well, I never told anyone how much I spent on this or that; but I guess my dh told his mom what the catering cost was and she told someone else and the end result was dh getting a nasty phone call from his ex ( not ex wife-not that that really makes a difference) yelling at him because she lives on a budget and we shouldn't be spending X on catering and a golf outing for dh's friends.
For one thing, what business is it of anyone's to judge what we spend on anything? Why would anyone feel that's a necessary topic of conversation? Why would his ex think we owe her a lifestyle??? I guess I just feel like certain people who should be close to us and share in the happy time are just mean and hateful. I don't know how to approach the subject, or if I even should.
My main issue isn't even with his ex. It's with the gossips. I understand his ex is probably a bit jealous. Although calling dh and yelling at him is a bit childish. My ex husband doesn't expect me to wash his clothes and cook his meals like I did when we were together, and I don't have expectations of him, either.
