My husbands ex has sent me an email stating that she wants us all to start over and be one big happy family. This happy family will consist of her and her husband, me and my husband, and the two boys which she and my husband had when they were married.
Now here is my problem. She has stated this before. At that time, although it took alot of prayer and everything in me to do, I said ok and befriended her. She would ask for marital advice from time to time and we would chat about the boys and what we wanted to do with the children over the summer. By the time the holidays rolled around we had been exchanging recipes and workout tips, I mean the whole nine yards. We even exchanged Christmas gifts.
Then one day she just flipped the script. She started acting like she had control over my house and what went on in it, she started subplanted the oldest boys with lies about his dad and wanted the boys to hate me...I fell in love with the boys when I met them at 5 and 7 years old, they are now 13 & 15.
Then one day we got a letter in the mail for my husband to come to the dreaded FOC.
This really hurt my husband because when they got divorced it was stated in the divorce decree that the two of them would handle that issue on their own. Well she wanted more money, mind you she lives in a 2 income household and we have one income, so she took him to court.
She allowed her lawyer to stand up and call a man that has always provided for his children, and always been there even for her before she had a husband, the lawyer called my husband a bad father...I could have choked...Then in the summer the oldest boy tried to run away. We found out later it was because he was angry and that his mother had been telling him that his stepdad is actually his biological dad, well you can see how this confused the child; to be told that constantly and looking at his real dad is like lookin in the mirror for him, but she continued....I must stop here because I know some of you have some other things to do...but this is just the tip of the iceberg...
So, now what would you do if suddenly the ex just came out of nowhere and said, lets just be one big family, I smell an impure motive here, please help.
