Some divorced parents try to keep it civil for their kids — but some would rather never speak to their former spouse again.
This man is part of the second group. He wants to demand that his ex stop sitting with him at their child's sporting events, but he's not sure if that would be out of line. He posted on Reddit to get some advice.
One of our kids is 16 and plays soccer. I go to every game possible. His mom and I have an icy relationship that's best when we have minimal contact. The last four times I let my guard down, she burned me. She apologized and I got over it, but it started to become a habit and a waste of my time and money.
She has been wondering why I've been distant from her (i.e. refuse to take her calls and tells her to email me) and it's made my life a lot easier. The only time when I actually have to see her is at our son's games.
