I'm writing this with great dismay. As I mentioned in my introduction post, I have custody of my two girls, with little to no involvement from my ex-husband.
Now that I am in this poly relationship, my ex husband and his new girlfriend (not poly) and his mother are now butting into my life and how I have chosen to live it. I have a wonderful couple that join me in this relationship and we all parent the children well. The kids are not necessarily "aware" of the arrangements, they just know that we all love them very much. As a side note, this is a triad in which we all live together in one big house.
My ex husband has made several references to the girls coming to live with him (even though he rarely does visitation with them) and I have told him it was an absolute no. It would devestate all involved, especially the girls. He has now mentioned going for custody of the girls and I'm destraught. Even though I KNOW that I am in the best interests of the girls, I'm terrified that a judge will side with them based on societal morals alone. My ex says that the children are being psychologically abused by our living arrangement because the girls know we all sleep in one big bed.
Has anyone else had this type of experience, or know of any good resources for us to look into?
