I have been involved with a woman that has a child with another man. I have lived with this woman for over nine months and weve talked marriage. It is really not too often, but on occasion when discussing their son or other issues, her ex talks to her very disrespectfully; he talks down, curses at her, etc.,. I dont like her to be talked to this way in general, but their relationship was very volatile; but I also take this as a personal sign of disrespect for me in that he thinks he can talk to her like this when I am in her life. To my knowledge he has never said anything negative about me as my understanding is that he doesnt want anything really to do with her as he has moved on with his life, he just likes the power over her; and I find this to be very frustrating and it is a HUGE issue with regards to our relationship as I dont think she is doing enough to prevent this from happening and it also tends to make me be somewhat distant will she and does she like this and will this always be (they have been broken up for two years) the way things are going to go? I really dont need a third party having any power within my own relationship dynamic. I dont know what I should do; be a man and confront the guy, just let it go as it is my girlfriends son clueless as to where to go? I told her not to take his disrespect; but I find that he has some power over her, whether due to their son or because I feel that their old relationship tendencies snaps back; or possibly there hasn't been any closure in her mind. Can this work as is?
