My ex hubs and I have a hybrid of 50/50. Its not a true 50/50. But he does see the kids every day pretty much after work til about 9. So for about 5 hours.

He lives with his crazy girlfriend and her son. He gets the kids every other weekend.

But what I am wondering is how would you deal with an ex that is nice when he isn't around his girlfriend or her son. But then when he is, its right back to the jackass he is. I feel I'm dealing with Dr jeckyl and Mr Hyde.

What would you do??

I would ask him " You are you always such a dick in front of your girlfriend?"

I had the same issue, except now he's a jerk all the time.

He told me the other day when we actually were able to talk. That she is a crazy jealous b. She thinks he still likes me. He probably does. I was the one that ended the marriage. Plus we were together for 6.5 years. Married for 5.5 and have two kids together.

He even told me that she will get mad when I give him pictures of the kids. It has nothing to do with the actual pictures but just for the fact that they came from me!

It's pretty common I think.

I would limit contact with him. No need to put yourself in a position to be treated like crap no matter how nice he is at other times.

He has the kids pretty much every day. So we have to communicate. I've been civil with him about somethings. That other women might have already pursued.

IMO he just needs to man up and tell his gf to get over the fact that he has to talk to me. We have kids together. That I am not like her and will not give up my kids.

Men don't man up when it comes to their current SOs.

My bf does. But I think maturity has a lot to do with it! My bf is older than me and he is older than my ex. I have found that I needed to skip a few years in order to find a good one.
