I was wondering if anyone has been through a similar situation. My boyfriend of 3 months has a 5 yr old son and an x wife. I understand he will always be connected with his x wife because of their child. I also understand he has given a piece of his heart to her because of their marriage and child. I too have been married and will always hold a special place in my heart for my x husband. My x and I never had children together so I do not have to deal with him on any basis. On the other hand, my boyfriend has to deal with his x on a weekly basis due to joint custody. She can be very difficult at times and it bothers my bf because he is concerned about the well being of his son. Every week there is some sort of problem with her that affects him. I can't help but feel insecure about the whole situation. Our relationship is very new. Although he says he's in love with me, and he has been divorced for 4 years, i still feel uncomfortable and maybe a bit threatened. Can anyone relate to how I'm feeling??????????????
I can completely relate. It sounds like you're dating my ex-boyfriend! Is he a lawyer, btw? My ex bf was also divorced for four years and had a 5-yr-old son and a joint custody. Same exact situation. It was bad because he was so preoccupied with his son and the ex wife was also a very difficult person. I felt the same way you do, a bit insecure and uncomfortable about the whole situation. We couldn't even spend any weekends together, except Sunday nights, because he was always with his son every weekend. Our relationship didn't work out partially because of these issues, and partially because he still felt not divorced long enough and couldn't see himself married again for a long time. I hope that's not true in your bf's case. I just wanted to say I understand what you must be going through. I don't have any children either.
