My chidren's step mother came here from another country. She knows very little English, and is now pregnant. My ex and I are still good friends, and he often tells me about his new wife's emotional outbursts. She has threatened suicide MANY times! She often runs out in the street in the middle of the night...Anyway, none of that is my concern. My only concern is that due to her unstable emotional outbursts, it is not safe for my children to be around her. My ex hardly ever sees the kids, but when he wants to take them out to lunch or shopping, the step mom always has to go too. My children are not allowed to be alone with him, because according to what he has told me, she wants to make sure that he will not love our children more than he will love the new baby. Also, when they are all out together, she is very clingy with him, and it makes my children feel uncomfortable. I do have sole custody, and the children don't have to have these visits. But I let them go anyway, because he has worked hard to get caught up on child support. So, I guess I am just wondering if I am out of line for requesting he leaves new wife at home when he is with our children? Thanks!!
