Wow, I’m amazed you’ve gone so long without meeting her! This is going to be the beginning of a lifelong relationship so I hope everything works out alright!

@rubybride718:  How would you feel about calling her and organising to meet up the day before or something for a coffee?  Get the awkward moment out of the way before her daughter’s special day.  When you do meet her I’d suggest a bit of bigging-up what a great daughter she has and how proud she must be etc…

Hope for the best!  My ex’s new wife and I get a long fine.  We will never be BFF’s but there is no bad feelings at all.

@rubybride718:   I haven’t been through it yet but I’m sure it will happen sooner or later.  I hope everything goes smoothly for you, good luck!

I cannot believe you have gone this long without meeting her. It would be ideal for you two to meet in person before hand and get the awkwardness out of the way but if she’s not open to it then just be as nice as possible. Its just as hard on her as it is on you maybe even harder.

I’m the ex and I’m the new wife to be.  I think meeting my ex’s new girlfriend was pretty hard, I knew this was someone who was going to be aroung my kids, probably knew some pretty intitmate details about me etc.

Meeting the ex was fine, we said hi shook hands and that was it for me, at least for an introduction. I do have to see her almost everyday due to the kids but it’s a civil relationship. I am the same as you I carry myself with class but have no problem putting someone in their place. After two years I’ve never had a confrontation with her.

It seems a bit odd to me that the mother would not want to meet you before now given you spend so much time around her daughter.  Good luck though – hope it goes well!
