I am a single father and primary parent to two amazing and beautiful children. For six months I’ve been dating a girl that has been struggling with a few things about my situation. She said it’s difficult to let go of her dream of marrying and having kids with someone for the first time. Also, just the mention of my ex-wife brings out anger in her. She gets furious when I have to go to appointments for my children and my ex is there too. She understands that there are no feelings there and I really don’t even have a friendship with my ex. But we are both committed to healthy co-parenting and this isn’t going to change. Is there anything I can do to help my girlfriend with this anger and help her uncover what’s causing it and how to come to acceptance? She feels terrible for feeling this way, but she doesn’t know how to get past it.
