Hello-hoping to help you a little with your question. It sounds like you feel a little unsure of why the ex-husband is so close in not only proximity to you and your fiance, but also within the family structure. It may feel odd because having an ex that close to your daily in and outs can sometimes be uncomfortable, but what do you feel is the biggest worry with him being so close within the family still and only 5 miles away? Do you think the kids play a role in why the family still is involved or is helpful for the kids to have him that close? How does your fiance react to all of this?
