I have to agree with the others. I found out this week that my former MIL thinks highly of me after all these years still....she said I was her favorite daughter inlaw out of the ones my ex has married.

The ex wife is no longer in a social relationship with your husband; only a co-parenting arrangement. She did not get divorced from the whole family. Maybe she steps around you and your hubby out of courtesy to you?
If she is not following the judge's order to provide communication; then he should enforce the order or file contempt charges.

I am friends with my ex MIL and SIL on facebook. It's not a big deal.
The other issues you are bringing up is for your husband to sort out. He could have petitioned the court to stop his ex moving.

I agree with the others. It is childish to want others to stop associating with someone who is, after all, family that is connected to that child.

Not seeing the issue in an ex continuing to have a relationship with your husband's family. My mother still has my brother's ex on facebook. My MIL still continues, 20 years later, to have a relationship with my husband's ex AND her new family call my MIL "nanny". In fact, they were listed as family on my FIL's obituary last year. So what if the ex send pictures to the grandmother? That's NORMAL! If your husband has problems with it, then let HIM say something.

I think you are jealous. I don't think this is about your husband or the child. This is about you.

They went to court he gets her all summer, spring break and Christmas break every year. Her mom is suppose to have a away for my husband to contact her and facetime her it was the judges order, but she didn't so we bought her a I pod so she could facetime us, well her mom keeps the wi fi cut off most the time on her I pod. AND her mom NEVER tells my husband anything about his daughter, we always find out stuff through his parents... and he is the father, but yet she is friends with his mom on facebook and can see everything her daughter does all summer through facebook and my husband does not have that access. His ex will send pictures to the grandmother and grandfather of his child that he hasn't seen in 4 months and will not send any to my husband. Then when she is here they will contact the grandparents about his daughter and not him. She lives with us in the summer his mom watch's her 2 days a week while we work. So it probably wouldn't be so bad if they actually let him be the father instead of his parent always taking over and TRYING to be her parents.

So... your stepchild's GRANDMA chooses to be Facebook friend's w/ HER grandchild's MOTHER? Get over it. If you want Grandma to see a picture, but don't want the ex to see it... keep your settings to friends only and tag Grandma in the comments instead of the actual picture.

Your husband only has his child for 9 weeks out of 52... it makes complete sense that the child's grandparent would want to keep in contact w/ the parent that has the child more. If your husband has a problem w/ how much he gets to see and contact his child... he should take it to court. He can get a court order allowing him to speak to his daughter on a regular basis. Both parents 'should' have the right to speak to their child daily if they choose... no matter where the child is located at the moment.
