My ex and I separated 8 yrs ago and divorced a year later. We have a son who is now 16 who recently decided he wanted to go live with his dad. The problem I'm having is if my ex is home, when I am on the phone with him talking about our son, I can hear his wife talking to him, responding to what we are talking about. This infuriates me!! My ex has a daughter who lived with us while we were married and when he talked to her mom, I always respected their privacy. I have repeatedly asked my ex to put a stop to this but he refuses. He says she's raising him now basically, so she is entitled. I was raising his daughter too and I didn't get in the middle of their business like she does!
I guess the easy solution is only call him at work . . . but that's not always possible, obviously. I've been told just to ignore it, but it is so irritating! I don't see why she can't respect our privacy!!
Anyone have any suggestions?
