So here is a list of the most common reasons your husband’s ex acts like she hates you. She doesn’t hate you, she hates what you represent: The failure of her marriage, the break up of her family, the woman her ex-husband became a better man for, the fear that she might have ruined her child’s life by not being able to make the marriage work. She’s afraid her kids will love you more than they love her. This could include showing up at a parent-teacher conference, forcing the kids to call you mom (yes, that does actually happen), calling the kids “mine,” posting pictures of the kids on your Facebook page, trying to co-parent with her by responding to messages sent to your husband, etc… She perceives you as overstepping boundaries by participating in events she believes are reserved for “mom” and participating in events not only reserved for mom, but that are “firsts.” These might include: taking your stepdaughter to buy her first bra or getting her first haircut; participating in any sort of cosmetic experience (hair color/new hair style/ mani-pedi day); talking to her about the birds and the bees; painting her nails or coloring/cutting her hair the way like it or similar to yours (even if your step is a teen and she requests this, it could still push mom’s buttons). For a long time she could just ignore the painful feelings that accompany divorce. She may even be remarried, but never actually grieved the loss of her marriage and family. When she looks at your strengths, all she sees are her weaknesses.An irrational fear, as the chances of that happening are basically nil, but a common fear nonetheless. Think of any sort of milestone and you can be sure that mom wants to be there for it. Enter stepmom, and suddenly it’s real and it’s in her face. If she never thought she was a good business woman and you own your own business, that insecurity is magnified.It seems Brady has it all together on the field, often called the best player in the league, not to mention ESPN NFL Nation reporters almost unanimously voted Brady to be the midseason MVP.But there is often drama, and the unavoidable scrutiny, when it comes to the women in Brady’s life.
” All in all, it seems she has adjusted to the situation and still loves Brady, saying he’s kind and a good man.I’ve never done anything to her.” And the truth is, not all exes who act out are high-conflict.Some just have a hard time adjusting to a new reality that includes a stepmom.John, known as Jack, was born on August 22, 2007 in Santa Monica and in July 2008 Moynahan opened up to Harper’s Bazaar about her thoughts during and following the pregnancy. When you’re suddenly pregnant and no one is standing by your side, even if you’re in your 30s, it’s a hard conversation.I’m a traditional girl, and I believe in marriage, and I just always thought that’s the way I’d be doing this.
