Just my two cents...but, if you are a stay-at-home person then upkeeping the house to a conventional standard of neatness is YOUR responsibility first. Your DH is working to have the roof and the walls that surround you there and it's your job to work at keeping the inside running smoothly and whether your DH is a clean-freak or not, it just sounds like as a housekeeper you could use either outside help (which the expense of is daunting when there is only one income) or a...
Well, if this is a conservative state/county, she's going to have an uphill battle. Everything that she does that is perceived as "different" is going to be used against her. I hope she has a good lawyer....

I have a TOP SECRET clearance, I've been printed many, many times in my government career and have no problem with it, whatsoever. Not really sure why anyone would care if they were printed or not?
We all laughed so hard when this was on last year!!! :
Interesting responses! My dh has no problem (nor do I) with my exh coming in the house--he has always been so respectful of me and dh and dh's relationship with our son. His coming over/in has never been an issue. But, both dh and I absolutely do not want his ex's negative energy in our home, our sanctuary, ever.

Just a query. We don't-as it (to me) crosses a boundary that I just don't want crossed, and DH completely concurs--but I am curious as to what others do. Thanks for the input!
WOW!!! It is SO refreshing to see points of view that are so eloquently conveyed. THIS is why I have come to this forum in the past! THESE types of thought-provoking, useful ideas and coping mechanisms as well as just plain support. Really, honestly--you guys are great. : I certainly did know what I was getting into: a wonderful relationship with a man who is my absolute best friend and supporter in the whole world; he gets on with my son (and my ex)...

You can't deny visitation because you think your ex is going to have sex while your son is there. I would really focus on safety issues - have your lawyer talk to his lawyer about who will do child care, ensuring a safe physical environment, etc. A lot of family law attorneys recommend that their clients also hire a...
