Bringing a new life into the world is a beautiful experience, especially when you have a child with someone you love.
But sometimes, you have a child with someone and the relationship doesn’t work out after. It’s life. I’ve noticed that there is always conflict with the new girlfriend of the child’s Father and the Mother of the child. Why though?
Is it the lack of respect for one another? Or is it jealously? I believe it’s both. I know exactly what some of you who may read this might think. This can happen between the child’s Father and the boyfriend of the Mother as well, but in this specific blog post, I will be discussing the girlfriend and child’s Mother. So, let’s dig right into these two particular problems.
1. The Lack of Respect for Each Other
We’ve all seen this in our families or witnessed some sort of altercation between the new girlfriend and the child’s Mother. Most Mothers believe that the new girlfriend doesn’t respect them so they do the same and vice versa. No, I’m not a Mother but I’ve seen this many times. The girlfriend might feel as if she only has to respect the child and the Father but I believe she should respect the Mother as well. It’ll lessen conflict and the child won’t have to be in the middle of the unnecessary drama. The Mother should respect the girlfriend as well. As long as the girlfriend doesn’t do anything to harm the child or talk bad about the Mother, there should be no problem. Right? Now I’m aware that the lack of respect may come from the Father bad mouthing the Mother with the new girlfriend, the father might have cheated with the new girlfriend, or other things but come together for the sake of the child.
Jealously plays a huge role in the New Girlfriend vs Baby’s Mother conflict as well. The new girlfriend might be jealous of the good relationship the Father has with the Mother. She could also be jealous of the fact that they have a child together so the Mother will always be apart of his life no matter what. However, the mother could be jealous too. The Mother might see how the Father is acting in his new relationship and not like how the new girlfriend is getting treated like she should have.
I understand that it may be hard, or you might not want to, but try to come together. At the end of the day, the child is at the center of all this foolery.
