So I’ve (m38) been divorced from my ex wife (f35) for 10 years. And we have two kids together (m12 and m10)
I remarried a year later while she’s still single. I have 3 further kids (f9, f7 f3).
I have my sons over every weekend. About 4 years ago, my ex wife opened up an online business and she’s been making 6 figures. While my wife is a stay at home mum and I make 30k to support our family.
So you can imagine how this difference has affected our 2 households. They live in a gated community, she drives a 2022 rsq3. And she and our sons go on 2 extravagant holidays a year.
My sons came over this weekend and started to tell me and the girls they’re going on a Disney concierge cruise in the summer. My daughters started crying saying daddy we wanna go, and when I looked online for the prices they’re priced at $5k per person.
It’s been all they’ve been talking about non-stop. I feel like their wealth is being shoved down our throats, when we can barely afford heating this Christmas.
It’s hard not to be hateful but I sent her a long text saying stop trying to make us feel less than. I also told my sons in private pls don’t mention holidays or gifts around the girls.
She replied by saying it’s not her problem how we feel, and when she does nice things for the boys. Me and my wife are the last people on her mind?
Am I reading into this too much? Or am I the a**h**e for saying she’s spiteful?
