I don't usually post about personal stuff but this is bugging the tar outta me. Today we went to my SO's eldest daughter's wedding. I was really dreading going because it was the first time I've have to be in a social situation with my SO's ex. I went because I like his DD and to support him. So things were fine at the ceremony site. His ex and her sister each made a few smart*** comments, but I ignored them. Kept that smile plastered on my face. However, when we got to the restaurant where the reception was held things became strained. The big problem was his ex suddenly couldn't keep her hands off my SO. While we were in the reception area waiting to be seated my SO sat down on a low couch to wait. He was very tired from working the late shift last night. When it was time for him to stand he made a comment about how he needed help to get up (really just joking) and she (the ex) practically pushed me aside to help him. He ignored her offered hand and got up by himself. All through the meal she kept finding reasons to come over to where we were seated and would put her hand on his arm or shoulder to talk to him. Her sister sat to my left at the table and I ignored her dirty looks. I almost got angry when I was trying to walk behind her chair to exit the room for a minute and even though I said excuse me, can I get by? several times, she refused to move her chair in. The seating was very tight and she had moved her chair forward for several other people. Okay, so her I just blew off and pushed my way through. It's the ex getting all "handy" with my SO that really gets to me. They are not on what you would call friendly terms. My SO basically just ignores her as much as possible. If he has to answer a direct question from her, he makes it short. The only comment I made to him was on the way home when I said it was very hard for me to not stab her hand with my dinner fork every time I saw her reaching for him. Did I handle it right by keeping my mouth shut? Would you have had a good comment to make to her? BTW, as of a few months ago he is no longer my SO but my fiance'. We've just kept it quiet because we didn't want to steal his daughter's thunder.
