No I will not share this with you and your new wife

A little backstory... My ex dh left me for another woman. We have three kids together and so does this lady. They got married 5 months after the divorce (only after knowing each other 8 months). He's treated our kids like shit (stopped coming to get them, never calling them etc..) He has been very nasty to me in the past, mostly because I wouldn't sleep with him AFTER the divorce. Things are better now and we kind of get along.

So he calls me the other day and asks me for one of my recipes. It was his favorite thing I make and one of my family's recipes that I got from my grandmother. He says he wants to make it for his new wife and her kids because he thinks they'll love it. I said no way. That's my family's recipe and he can google a similar one. He told me to stop being a snarky bitch.

What do you think? Should I have shared it? I know it's just a recipe but it's the principal of it. Why should I share it with him? I know this sounds silly, but I'm still hurt about the whole situation.

I have certain recipes that I won't share. I certainly wouldn't share them in your situation.

Nope. don't share it. If he was making it as comfort food for your kids sure. But not so he can impress the new wife.

I never give away family recipes. How dare he. Is nothing sacred?!

I would have given him the"recipe". Took out a few ingredients. Added a couple.

No, I wouldn't. My recipes are only given to those I care about.
