Q & A

Scenario:I heard this on the radio yesterday, Ok there was a man who was divorced from his wife, but they remained good friends and they have two kids together, he is a great father to the kiddies, the wife lost her home due to financial difficulties. The ex-husband has a live in girlfriend who moved in with him a while back, seeing he and the ex-wife still had a good relationship she called him up and asked him if she and the kids could move in with him/the girlfriend for 6 months until she can get herself together?

The ex-wife and the girlfriend don’t really know one another very well, but the man is in between them both trying hard to do the right thing, he asked the girlfriend if they the ex/the kids could come and stay she said yes only on one condition, that he and the ex are NEVER home alone together in the house. How would you have handled this one? Would you let an ex-spouse live with you even if there are kids involved?

***NOTE:The radio host also stated that the girlfriend had a planned trip to ATL, but she canceled it for a later date lol.

    • Well he couldn’t see his children on the streets or the mother of his children so he did the right thing but the girlfriend maybe should have thought more of her relationship with the man and think that he would slide back with the ex ............
      If she is saying already she doesn’t trust him then this makes a bad situation worse - what happened to her self respect ?

    • Hello my UK friend yes I felt he did the right thing as well. And as for the girlfriend, she has her nerve she moved in with him so its his place and he has the right to do as he pleases even if he did want to be home with the ex/kids alone so what, and as you said where is her trust?

    • I think he did the right thing. In my opinion without trust you have no relationship.

    • It’s a rather strange situation.  Like Annie said, you don’t know how you’d feel till you were in it.

      I guess I don’t blame the girlfriend.  It’s probably not the man she doesn’t trust, but the ex wife.  It looks like the ex wife is trying to worm her way back in to his life.

    • Chuckling to myself... the X told me he was moving the 19 yr old daughter of a long time friend of ours (our best man for our wedding, in fact) into his shop apt to hide her from her stalker X boyfriend (who was 43)... and then she started working on him and you all know the rest.... he wanted a divorce to be with her except it’s now almost 16 months and I’m still married and stuck here.  

      I would like to believe they could all live happily together, but I have some misgivings that it would work out as intended and so I think it not a good idea. The man would be better off I think, offering to set up the X wife & kids elsewhere. Myself, if I lived with a boyfriend that wanted me to live with his X wife and kids and he saw it the only solution, I’d leave.

    • I feel the man should make sure his kids do not go homeless, but his X should go elsewhere and pick up her kids for visits.

    • Question is is why would his x want to move in? That is to wierd and think how confused it would or could get for the kids? No, I see no positives of having x and new under same roof.
      However new has some issues more like red flags. Trust is huge and x would have to know it would be difficult at best.
      If it was me lol as x id never ask and as new I wouldnt want another female in my kitchen so to speak....
      Its almost like a story line on a bad sitcom
