My husband and I have a 3 years old son and got divorced in 2015. We were married almost 3 years and were together for a total of 9 years. During our time apart he started spending time with a girl that was like a little sister to him and she got pregnant. He determined he didn't want to be with her and a few months later realized he wanted his family back. We began to form a friendship after months of strictly co-parenting and I found that we had both grown a lot and were individuals that could now make a marriage work. Then he told me about the baby and that they were never in a relationship and she wanted to be with him and has had a crush on him forever, but she is also gay and very understanding and will just be okay. Now here we are, my ex and I dating and parenting, the baby isn't here yet and she is texting and calling him everyday just to shoot the breeze. I do not want to deal with a clinger and I have made it clear that if we enter into a relationship they can't be friends, but I don't think she is going to get it because she asks him to the movies and to eat all the time. I have made my stance clear that in the future she is not in it, but his son is. I just want to hear of any other similar experiences and insight. This is a really odd situation and not one I ever thought I would be in, which is why it took him so long to tell me. But we are great together and have the perfect loving, fun relationship.
