My wife's relationship with her ex-husband
Okay here's the deal. My wife and I have been married going on three years 1/14/2010. I've had some complaints about the relationship she has with her ex-husband when it comes to the children (19 & 15). Example, our 1st X-mas as a new "family" included her ex-husband there and interacting the morning of our X-mas together. I expressed to her "why can't we make this our event" the boys are old enough that the father can come pick them up and have "their" holiday together...the responce was "well we've always done it like this since the divorce". I'm like and what about us starting a new tradition, a new family. I'm not trying to tell her to push the boy's father out of the picture, just some separation, so we can have a go at making something that is ours? Please, am I seeing this wrong, she just won't budge on issues like this, HELP am I missing something? Am I reacting the wrong way?

Wow I am so sorry, she seems really horrible, you need to firmly tell her that you guys have a new life together and you will now have new traditions that do not involve her ex. That is just so weird and disrespectful for her to do that to you. Her sons are beyond old enough to have their own tradition with the father.
I am 1000% in your favour,You are in the right and i think your wife is still wed to her former husband. I,having been through it all see your marriage failing, sorry but thats how I see it
