Are you close to your ex? (the father of your kid) how about his new girlfriend?

I'm trying to figure out a certain relative of mine. Ayear ago she left her husband and 2 kids. He has custody and she pays child support. He has a new girlfriend with 3 kids. So in this ex husbands house there are 5 kids and a new woman. They both work weekends, so this relative spends the weekends with her ex and his girlfriend, the kids. I get the babysitting part, but why not show up in the morning and leave when they get home?

I just think this would confuse the kids. They no longer have a family unit, their mom runs off, yet she spends the weekends. I just never seen a situation where 2 newly divorced people like hanging out and with a new woman in the picture

I guess maybe they truly are better off as friends?

I think it's awesome for them. I think her kids will be fine. Much better than the 15 years + my parents were divorced before the could be in the same room together again.

I think it is great. Just becausxe you are not together does not mean you are no longer a family unit.

My ex and I have been going through a rough patch but for years we had almost no issues and have all hung out with even my dh.

No. My ex doesn't parent when he has the kids, his girlfriend does it for him. Luckily I like her, but I hate my ex, he is so self absorbed and only cares about his dick. It's a shame I had kids with him really, but at least one of us has a brain.

Nope! I don't talk to my ex or his new wife. He pays child support & only sees ds once maybe twice a year. He basically acts like ds doesn't exist. I'm very lucky to have a wonderful boyfriend who's an amazing father to my son.

My ex comes to all holiday gatherings and birthdays. I figured it's better for the kids. I have a boyfriend and they get along ok. He doesn't bring his girlfriends since they change every week and they usually are a lot younger (like 20 years younger).
