Ok here's the situation. My guy & I have been together for over a year. We have 4 kids between us, his are 6 1/2 & 10, mine are 14 & 16. The kids get along fine and like both of us. We have mine 24/7 and his 3 1/2 days a week. (We live in a different town from the ex.) The problem is an ex who comes across as not trying to be manipulative but is anyway. It seems any suggestions we make to her about the kids gets thrown out the window because she didn't think of it first, but her ideas are always great in her opinion and my guy can't see what she's doing. He will disagree with her on things but they NEVER argue about anything. They are a really bad mismatch but act like best pals when around each other and he expects me to do the same. I won't do that because she's 180 degrees different from me. If it weren't for the kids......I'd have absolutley nothing to do with that. (She has also ran through 3 or 4 guys at least since the divorce 3 1/2 years ago due to her controlling ways.) How can I get her to get a life and leave us alone? My guy and I only want what's best for the kids here.
