@MrsMaverick13:  Strange. The fact that she is so peristent makes me wonder if something else is going on, e.g:

A while ago a bee posted about an unusual situation: she found some old family photos from her ex-boyfriend (from long ago, her teenage years). Things like photos of his grandparents. These were analog (non-digital) photos so quite possibly the only copies, and there was a good chance the ex had forgotten she had them. She wanted to somehow return them, but didn’t want to appear creepy by sending a FB request. But nearly everyone agreed that the right thing to do was to somehow contact him and return the photos.

I’m wondering if something similar is going on here: that your ex has some legitimate reason to communicate with you; and he has enlisted his wife to make contact, so that there is no suggestion that he is trying to flirt with you.

So… is there some way to message her without accepting the friend request? (I’m no FB expert so I don’t know the answer). Simply ask, “Is there a reason you’re trying to contact me?”. Then if there is a special reason for making contact, you’ll know. If there isn’t, you can continue to ignore the friend request.
