My husband's ex-wife
My husband's ex-wife moved back to our home town 3 years ago. She has their oldest son that lives here too. When we have a family gathering at my husband's parents his Mom invites the grand-son and here he comes with his mother in tow. He brings her to all our family dinners, Christmas and New Year's, he even brought her to our family reunion. How would any of you handle this situation? She has even ask if I would care if my husband took her fishing when he goes. I said sure knowing he would not take her. Should I just keep quiet about this and let her continue coming or should I put a halt on it. She is certainly not a threat too my marriage.

I think you are being very kind about the situation, but if it was me I would find it very uncomfortable one. I would talk to my husband and express this discomfort. Perhaps you and your husband should have a chat with his eldest son. Best policy is to be honest and direct. There have to be some other factors involved- I mean if I was the ex, I would feel uncomfortable doing what she is doing. Out of respect for you- I would never do that. She might not be any threat, but her being at the family functions doesnt put a smile on your face either. How does your husbands family feel about it? I say time for the ex to move on.
Apparently you do view her as a threat or you wouldnt be asking How old is the son? And if neither you nor your husband see her as a threat then dont worry about it and the whole fishing thing She is probably doing to try and get at you Just ignore her.
