A member of the community asks:

“How would you all feel if your husband’s baby mama basically lived with your mother-in-law? She is over there every week and stays several nights. I walked in there today, and she was cooking soup for everyone. I feel like it’s weird as hell, especially when I, my hubby, and daughter go over there and she’s there.”

Advice Summary


While some people agreed it was a little weird, they also suggested that because her husband and the ex have a child together, she should just do her best to get along with her.

One person wrote, “Not wrong. Maybe be nicer about it and who knows you guys might end up being friends and even better parents to your daughter. She was apart of the family and she will always be until there’s a reason for her not [to be].”

Another woman added, “Maybe try to foster a friendship with her too. It would be good for the kids in the long run if all they ever had was a peaceful family.”

And one other commenter said, “If nothing inappropriate is going on then don’t worry about it so much. Remember she was a part of their family before you and I know in my family once you’re in we don’t lock you out unless you hurt us.”
