The ex sounds like a nasty and vindictive creature, and her new boyfriend is likely to have trouble with her. It sounds as though he spends more time with his kids than most divorced men manage to do. How often does she imagine he SHOULD see them ? Or is this a ploy to try to force him to get back with her ?
