X-husband got a roommate

If you’re divorced, and you don’t address any ‘roommate’ issues in some kind of agreement, then he doesn’t have to consult with you at all about whom he lives with. I know it’s frustrating. My ex moved in with his now wife before they got married. Fortunately, she was good to my kids. He didn’t consult with me-but I didn’t expect him to either. Unless the kids are being neglected or abused, your ex’s roommates are his to choose-I believe.

Dear baseballmom:

Greetings. ASK HIM! If he does not answer, then write him a letter and work through it. You have the right to know anything (within reason) that affects your children. Thank you and good luck.
