My ex husband and his new wife only have the kids everyother weekend and they have plenty of time with just the two of them. They have been on plenty of vacations to the beach and camp ground and Florida with just the two of them and their new baby. They don't ever take my kids (they are the parents also). The kids feel really bad about it because we don't get to ever go on vacation, I just don't have the money. My ex and his wife are going to New York in a few weeks and once again they don't want to take the kids. My son wants to go very badly and I am afraid that they will think that there father dosen't love them if he keeps leaving them behind. Should I ask him about it or demand that he takes the kids? Actually when he is going to NY is his weekend to have the kids, and he wants me to figure out another time he can have them so he dosen't have to take them with him. I actually do think its his wifes decision. Her mother lives in NY and they are taking the baby to see her mother. Him and her went to FL to see her father that is why they went to FL. I wonder if her parents don't know she has step kids. Maybe she dosn't want them to know for some reason. She lived with my ex for 4 years now, they have been married for 2 years and there "new baby" is almost 2. This kind of stuff has been going on ever since he arrived. She married him knowing that he had 2 kids already. I think when you marry somebody that already has kids you marry the kids also. So she needs to treat them like her own, but she dosen't and now he don't either.
