I have asked and told my in-laws that I do not want there to be any interaction between my children and my husband's ex-wife. She is still invited to family dinners, and in which cases we decline the invite. I thought my wishes were clear, since there is no reason to have continued contact or reason as to why she should know, recognize or be familiar with my family, just because she has difficulty letting go.
My in-laws were watching the baby, and when we pulled up to pick her up, to our surprise the ex was also there. I am furious. This wife had made incredibly rude comments to me in the past and made statements regarding if we had children she doesn't know what she would do. She continues to receive in depth psychiatric help, and i feel that not only as a mother, wife and protector i have the right to say who i want to interact with. Especially when there is no positives thar come and no reason for an ex wife to interact with my children. Anyone else in a similar situation?
