Each of you have the right to date and marry whomever you want but as you are saying, you have two young and impressionable teenagers. One would think that your ex would value the time he spends with the children and not bring along his date. Have you spoken to your ex about the quality of time he is spending with the children? Are the children uncomfortable around the girlfriend? Perhaps you and your ex could sit down and talk about "new relationships" and the impact on the children. Have you done any reading about introducing your children to a parent's new relationship? If so, you could give a copy to your ex. I guess the main focus is what the children are feeling about the 21 year old girlfriend and sharing this with your ex. Thank-you, Melanie Brubaker
