You might not like her, or agree with his decisions, but abuse aside, you have no legal or moral right right to try to stop that.In fact, the more you try to control his life and his time with the kids, the worse life will be for the whole family. In fact, if this is you, I urge you to revisit your values.Within each opportunity area are specific actions parents can take. These simple actions can make a big difference in your children’s ability to thrive despite divorce. Help your children find safety and support that fosters a well-adjusted life despite the divorce of their parents. We were never exclusive and hadn't spoken in six months! After doing some soul searching, I realized my reasons were different for each person.With the first ex, I still relied on him for emotional support the way I did when we were dating, and seeing him with someone else made me wonder if we could still have as close a relationship.Because this is just the reality of a two-household family.He is the kids’ father, and legally he has a right to parent as he sees fit.
That is not the law of co-parenting for every family.A friend once told me his test of whether he's over an ex is whether it would bother him if they were dating someone else.Under that logic, I've never gotten over anyone in my life.That is right: Your romantic life is none of your ex’s business. Now, you may follow Gwyneth Paltrow and the pat divorce advice that informs you to constantly communicate with your ex and involve them in all decisions that involve the kids.Some people have really beautiful relationships with their exes, or friendly or civilized relationships. As in any relationship — platonic, romantic, familial, professional — you conduct yourself with dignity and according to the understanding of disclosure with the other party.
I know I'm not alone in feeling devastated over an ex moving on.
