Blended Life EP. 71: The Dreaded EX
Nov 19, 2020 Season 1 Episode 71
Blended Life

This episode is all about the dreaded EX!  Listeners emailed us questions this week asking for insight about being the new partner/stepparent and still having a very present ex in the picture.  The following are topics we cover on this podcast:

  1. Would you (Eric) marry the current version of your ex-wife, given how you work together now?  Why or why not.
  2. When Eric alludes to the ex always being in his life (always will be in contact with her), what does that really mean?  Is there any hope for the step parents out there who are biding their time until some sort of finish line?  Is there a finish line?
  3. Social Media and the ex; what boundaries should there be, if any?  Do you as the step parent have a right to privacy; to put your foot down when it comes to your spouse allowing the ex to “follow” them?  What do you do if you disagree on this issue in your marriage; where do you go from there?
  4. Are you crazy for being uncomfortable or even insecure when the ex is always there?  When they show up at family gatherings, when you are sitting between your spouse and his ex as they talk, when the MIL is giving the ex rides to these events...is it okay to have some expectations of boundaries or do you just need to accept it as the new comer

Our Purpose: Why is talking about blended families and life in general important? Because we believe that we can do better than what statistics say about second marriages lasting, about blending families making it, that’s why! A 70% divorce rate statistic for remarriages with children is simply unacceptable! Spreading life lessons, passing along wisdom gained from experience and bringing to light what is often happily left in the dark to hide, is how we all can learn to be better, to do better the second time around (in a #blendedfamily many lives depend on it). Together we can avoid costly mistakes that will end in the demise of our precious families.   -Blended Life
