I really want a relationship (of some sort) with my ex and his fiancé...problem is either he refuses to let her talk to me or she is deciding to ignore me. I am not a needy ex-wife. I do not call the kids every night when they are there. I feel they need their time with their daddy, too. I am trying to stay out of their business...but when my kids come home talking about how she is always in a bad mood, dad is never around...and now I found out she has been spanning my son!! I can't do this anymore!! People keep saying give it time. I understand why they say this. It has only been two years. But my kids cry when they leave now. She made the statement that her fiancé did not ask for this divorce so I (as in me...the ex) should not get everything I want. All I want is for us to have a civil working relationship for the kids. I know this will not happen over night. I just need advice please...am I trying too hard? I don't want to be best friends but I would like to be able to talk to the two of them if there is something going on. Sometimes I think I am the only mom ever who wants to get along with stepmom...
