You happen to fall in love with a divorced guy and even if you’ve met him sometime late after his shattered marriage, you’ll still probably hear negative feedback from people around you. And worst of all when you have to spend the whole summer vacation with your new found prince charming with his ex-wife and kids. Whether you like it or not, you’ll have to face few or more similar encounters scratching elbows during family gathering, bumping the grocery carts at the shopping mall or witness the child theater play together in school. Oh my, it’s horribly awkward!

Crazy Love

So blame it to overwhelming love or some crazy cupid arrows which hit you badly that blinded you enough to think of these possibilities. In one way or another, you simply realized that long back and yet you remained steadfast holding on to your genuine unconditional affection. And no matter how you rationalize things to be prepared on some scenarios, sometimes you’d be caught off guarded and turned into uncomfortable situations.

Stressful Moment #1: She can’t move on!

She keeps calling you asking if she can speak to him. Or else, she always has reasons to define situations to irritate you. Don’t let yourself fall into such filthy bait. Don’t add coal to the fire when it’s burning hot. Otherwise, it’s tougher to put the flames off. Be calm and vulnerable as a dove yet be as wise and cautious as the serpent.

Stressful Moment #2: She keeps on harassing you

She flooded you with text. You checked your Facebook wall and you know she’s expressing her bitter sweet memories to her friends like an old wife whining and grieving on her long lost love. Now, she doesn’t stop there. She’s always hook up with something to make your blood boil. Stop your fingers before you regret it. The least you can do is play along with her game plan to ruin you. She often gets the sympathy so better stay tight-lipped. Depending on the severity of emotional damage, you can always keep old messages intact if the situation demands something really serious like bringing the issue to higher court.

Stressful Moment #3: You simply hate her

Husbands and wives always have those invisible bonds despite separation and more if there are children involved. It doesn’t necessarily mean physical connection but somehow it’s something more than words can speak. Don’t ever think it’s crazy when you just hate your husband’s ex for no reason. Even simple handshakes and his glares to her burns you fiercely.

In times like this, think with your brains rather and not with your heart. Stop drawing your self-made imagination to mess up with your mood. After all, he had ended the marriage and chosen to start a new life with you. Cheer up and stay positive.

Stressful Moment #4: She’s an attention seeker and it sucks!

Have you found yourself mingling around common friends or relatives? Everything seems alright until she tried to speak with her escapade with Joe to all people there. Can be bragging about how their fond time together as one happy family as if you’re an invisible puppet. And worst if your husband rides comfortably with the fun.

Although, it’s not always a good idea to accuse your partner about anything but it works better if you talk to him in private later after the party. Both of you need to set boundaries and limits to avoid hurting each other’s ego. The bottom line is – each party should work on things to benefit both. In the same way, you must also show confidence and trust to your partner.
