Ex & I have a 2yo DD, we both have new partners. Ex financially supports DD, and had weekly visitation until he got together with his new girlfriend (an old work friend of ours). Since they got together we have shifted visitation to fortnightly, but it rarely is actually fortnightly and more often than not becomes monthly because his new partner 'wants to do things on the weekend without DD.' Recently, we attended mediation and upon discussing visitation, exDP said he wanted to start having DD overnight, the mediator gave us a break and told him to call his partner (they live together) to discuss then we'd reconvene; we came back and he said it can't happen. They have since discovered she's pregnant (3 mths now) and I'm even more concerned about what's going to happen with visitation, I feel like my poor DD is getting shafted when it comes to seeing her Dad because his new partner doesn't want their time to revolve around DD. We are all civil & I generally keep my opinions to myself in order to keep the peace, but I'm starting to really dislike her for not wanting DD around to the point that her Dad sees her less than he should.
How did you cope with your partner having another child? Did you feel the same? Why? Please enlighten me to the new girlfriends perspective, I need to see reason or I might explode!
