Have you ever had issues with your SO's ex (s)? If so, how did you handle the situation?

If your SO doesn't take care of this, instead of leaving it to you or to cause you stress, perhaps you have the wrong SO?

IOW, it is the responsibility of your SO to set the proper boundries with thier ex(s).

When I have had issues with a SO's ex I have him handle it with the ex. There have been times when this hasn't been enough and I have had to speak to the ex myself. So If my SO can't take care of the problem, then I have no problem trying to resolve it myself.  Sometimes we have talked to the ex as a united front. This is also good.

Be Well Always,

only once... we'd just gotten back from vacation and he went to go see his kids.  His ex was livid that he took me on vacation (we both split the costs, so he didn't pay my way) and never did her. I texted him while he was there. He happened to be taking a nap and was not next to his phone, which his ex took and began texting messages, as if she were him, saying he was fine, that he'd just finished having sex with her and to mind my own business.  I knew it wasn't him, so I texted back something very personal and snarky about her and her messy house (she is a horder) and all hell broke loose.  She even put the youngest on the phone to me, on whom I promptly hung up.  Then the ex started back up.  I pretty much let her have it, launching broadsides from the HMS Kendahke.  I do believe I sunk her little boat.

That was the first and last time she ever interacted with me.
