Hi everybody -
My husband is extremely close with his ex-wife's family, and chooses to spend all his holidays with them, his ex, and their only child. Since the ex can't tolerate being around me, I'm not welcome at any big family events. He can't figure out how to have all of what he wants (a happy me *and* this family at holidays). I get that he desperately wants to hold onto the family, and he wants to give his kid the kind of holiday she always had. But this is hard on me, and on our relationship.
Has anyone made this work? Any advice or suggestions?
