I've been with my boyfriend for over 2 years and he has a 3 1/2 year old son. I've never had a problem with his son if anything I care a lot for him. It's just unfortunate that his mother is an immature, awkward woman. My boyfriend took her to court to gain access to his child and even forced parental rights on her as she refused point blank to name him on the birth certificate when their son was born. His ex girlfriend refuses to meet me yet tells her son that I'm a liar and has even accused me of hitting their son in a lawyers letter which was thankfully ignored! My boyfriend and I never argue unless it's about his ex and were now at the stage where we want to get married and start our own family but I feel I can't with her sniffing about in the background. She refuses to speak to my ex unless it's to accuse us of failing to take care of her son (she's never been present during contact -she even refuses to collect her son from our house). Is there any way I can get on with my life with my boyfriend?
