When I started dating SO he and his ex-wife were on very good terms and I felt like they were fantastic at co-parenting.
After we started dating and were both invested she did start to give SO some grief (trying to change the visitation schedule and wanting more money even though he pays above what he is meant to). It seems before I came along SO would do whatever she wanted and now that I’m here if I feel like SO is being taken advantage of I speak up. For example: She said that if SO buys a present for his children he needs to buy one for her stepdaughter (she cheated on SO and remarried the man she had the affair with. Um.. No. It’s SO’s job to provide for her children, not your stepchildren.
However, she did calm down after she realised that SO wouldn’t be catering to her every whim and for the most part everyone gets along nicely.
I couldn’t imagine constant drama. It would be too much for me.

As a never been married mom I even have to say NO!! I actually prefer men with no kids, even though I have one. It’s enough to have to deal with one other household outside of our own and the trials that come with that. Adding another?? No thanks!! I don’t feel there was any vindictive ex or drama in my situation other than people learning their roles once dad got married. but it’s still no walk in the park

eeniebeans: Aren’t you lucky that no one thought they were “new mom/dad”!! I wish I was that lucky… My daughter is told to call her step mom “mom” No matter how much I express to her/ them she can call her whatever she is comfortable with.
