If you're also a second (or third) wife, then you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. I'm still dealing with the trash talk of my husband's ex wife. Every so often there is a new rumor. I'm a drug addict, I'm pregnant, I'm a whore, I'm a bad mom, and so on. I know it shouldn't hurt my feelings, but it does. I understand being a little bitter about a divorce, but you have to draw the line somewhere. I just overheard (thanks to Myspace) that it was "pathetic" for my husband to take me to the same places that he took his ex wife. So does that mean we have to completely change all of the places that we go because she has been there too?? That's stupid and childish. And not only do we have to deal with her, we have to deal with all of her friends too. Because of the divorce, what used to be their friends are now hers. Because my husband chose to change his life for the better, ie, stop going to the bars, parties, etc., he is being put down. Seems backwards to me. I don't expect her to celebrate our happiness. I do, however wish she would act like an adult. She even went so far as to break into our house and write on our car! (There's more, but I won't go into any more details.)
My ex husband likes Ricky. In fact, I get along well with Ricky's first wife, the kids' mom, and her husband. I don't want to get along with his ex. I just want her to leave us alone. It's hard enough being the new girl and blending a family.
