I am having big problems with my exhusbands second wife and have done for well over thirty years. My eldest son married her eldest daughter after she married my ex-husband.
She and her daughters are very strong characters and will not let anything get in their way whatever they want.
I have been accused of many things during this time and I even had to engage a solicitor to get a 'Cease and Desist' letter sent to my ex-husband and his second wife.
We share granchildren and great grandchildren and if the second wife can make family gatherings awkward me, she will and does on many occasion.
How do I keep coping with this? Put a bold face on and carry on as it everything was normal.
I am tempted to show my eldest son the cease and desist letter. I do feel like shaming the second wife, but would that do any good or would the situation get more awkward.
For example, as the second wife likes to celebrate christmas with her children and grandchildren, I decided that we could have an American type thanksgiving at my house, it happened one year. The next year I tried to repeat the meal only to find that the second wife had invited them over to her house for 'appetisers' before coming to my house for the meal. What did she do but cook a full blown meal so that when the children and grandchildren arrived at my house they were too full to eat anything. You could write a farce about it all. It is funny and tragic at the same time but it is spoiling my time with my family. I'm 72 and the situation is so stupid.
Any advice would be good.
