I just need to know if I am being crazy. My boyfriend and his ex get along great. They do a really good job co parenting their child. I have two girls he has on girl the exact same age as my oldest. My ex is an alcoholic who is out of the picture at the moment. I have had trouble adjusting to my boyfriends need to include his ex in everything we do. Examples. He asked my girls and I to go on a trip to an amusement park. When we finally got around to going he insisted we invite his ex and her boyfriend because they always did this as a family. I thought it was unnecessary and he got angry saying I was jealous. He insists that he wants us to be a family. We moved into together and we get along great. To ease the transition he wanted to get his daughter a cat. So we got her a kitten. Now he wants to send it with her to her mom's because it is HER cat. I am angry because I feel like we are never going to be a family if he can't cut these weird ties he has to her mother. We are running a race in our town we need partners mine is my best friend. He picked his ex because she is fit and he think he can win with her as his partner.Am I being crazy? Or is he just setting us up to fail by bringing her in to everything in our lives?

Those "weird ties" are going to be there forever. What he is doing is in the best interests of his child. I think you are jealous, TBH.
