NWR - 2nd Marriages - Is anyone else getting flack from their X?
Posted: May 7, 2008 11:43 PM
My XH and I have been divorced for almost 4 years. We've maintained a tense, but polite policy of co-existance for the sake of the kids. However, since I told him I was getting married, he has been a pure dick-asshole. He's currently living with his girlfriend and her kids, but he is constantly needling me about living with my FH.
He's been picking fights over child support, is constantly late in meeting me for kid exchanges (for my pick up, of course), whining about taxes, etc. A couple of weeks ago, he demanded to "inspect" the kids rooms to make sure they were clean and wouldn't make the kids sick (the kids haven't been sick in a couple of years!). I told him he had no right to inspect their rooms and he tried to pull the "I pay child support, so this house is as much mine as yours - I don't care who's name is on the title". This resulted in the first honest-to-God screaming I've done at him in my life (not even when we were married).
Just so you don't think I'm milking him, he pays child support, but I carry all the insurance, pay all childcare, summer camps, clothes, shoes, haircuts, books, work full time, and pay for costs that we are supposed to split according to the divorce decree.
