His Ex Wife

hi my name is susan and like many others i am finding dealing with his ex wife impossable. my loving boyfriend who loves me and his to kids a lot and would do anything for us. his ex wife no matter what i do she copies me some examples we gave his oldest son a his old cricket bat and done it up for him his son loved it. so she copies by getting her brother to give him his old cricket bat mind you before that the poor kid was walking around with a cricket bat that she had brought for $2 that nearly hit him in the head every time he went to swing it because it had a big crack in its handle/ number 2 when i died my hair she followed with the same colour / number 3 we took the boys away on a holiday and she had to take them away doing the same thing/ not mentioning the numrous other things/ then when i was at home by myself she used to ring and make coments like i have his kids and he will come back to me and she still acts like a crazy person because she dosent act like they are devorced even thow she left him. i just dont get it why she goes out of her way to make my life hell like i dont belong here when she is the one who left in the first place.

I am going through the same thing. My theory on crazy ex-wives is: she didn't want him but she doesn't want anyone else to have him either and if he does get someone else that person isn't supposed to make him as happy (or happier) than she did. He is supposed to be miserable with out her. And the kids shouldn't like you either because your not MOM and MOM should be the one to do everything for them and give them all the fun stuff. :)<br />

Having said that nothing you do is going to make her happy, short of breaking up with your man. <br />
<br />
But just know that you are not alone, and while you shouldn't have to put up with it. It happens more often that you think. And i suggest doing what I did - put purple streaks in your hair and see if she is bold enough to copy that one :)
