18 things men say about their ex-wives


 When divorced people date, they talk about divorce. A lot. And that means talking about your ex. A lot. Which means through dating, I’ve heard a whole lot of thoughts and opinions from men about their ex-wives. Ladies, here’s how your ex feels about you:

  1. Until you split up, he never appreciated how much you did for the kids and the house.

  2. When you keep having fights with your friends it validates his opinion that you are impossible to get along with.

  3. You’re a really great mom.

  4. You’re messing up the kids.

  5. He wanted to be that guy who cheered you on as you pushed the baby out, and caught him as you squeezed the child out your bleeding vagina. But now that he did that, he feels differently about your vagina. He’s not proud of that, but it is what it is.

  6. He wanted to be that guy who loved you and found you attractive no matter how fat you got. But he just isn’t attracted to you now. No matter how hard he tries.

  7. He did love you no matter what.

  8. One day he realized he didn’t love you anymore.

  9. When you didn’t have sex for months and years, it didn’t just hurt his feelings. It devastated him, and made him worry about his manhood and himself. It was a really, really big deal.

  10. You insisted everything be done your way, which made him not want to do anything at all.

  11. Now that he’s on his own with the kids, he’s a better dad.

  12. He loved being the provider while you stayed home with the kids.

  13. Now that he’s paying child support and alimony, he really resents that you gave up your career.

  14. He’s a little bit happy that you’re struggling financially because maybe now you’ll appreciate how hard he worked how much you blew through all the money he earned. And by a little bit happy, he really means a lot happy.

  15. It’s not that he liked her better than you. It’s just that she liked him back.

  16. He’s so much happier now!

  17. He wants to kill your boyfriend.

  18. Sometimes when you have the kids and it’s late at night, he secretly wishes you’d text him and ask him to come sleep at home.

  1. Ms. Emma Johnson, I will say you got 2,4,10,11, 14 and 16 are correct. So you only scored a 33%, a little research is necessary. I will say every case is different, but when they go to court, it is surprising how similar the cases become. This unequal treatment under the law is what creates the most As for number 18 the court are men bad, women are good… screw the men!
    As for number 1: I wish I could have said that, but sadly it was not so.
    As for number 3: I wish I could say that.
    As for number 5: Wrong again, we appreciated her more!
    As for number 6: Men are really not that shallow.
    As for number 8: Correct, I was there for the children.
    As for number 9: Sex, really? By that time, why? I do not need her to fulfill my “manhood” or to make me feel better about myself. I did not ever need her to validate me.
    As for number 12: We are family men, one of us needed to take care of the children. The one who had the best opportunity to earn a sustainable living should work. Him or her.
    As for number 13: She never had or tried to have a career.
    As for number 15: You assume all men cheat, nope women do too. That is my case.
    As for number 16: I am much happier now. The new wife has opened my eyes, SO MUCH! Just for clarification. I met her two years after my divorce. The difference is astounding.
    As for number 17. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE GUY! Save yourself!
    As for number 18. Are you freaking kidding?! Only if she was not going to be there EVER again!

  2. #18 If a man wants to have sex with his ex-wife than he wouldn’t have left her to begin with! Men leave their family because they are beyond miserable there’s no way they would want to be within 200 feet of their ex! The past is in the past for a reason movin on!
    #17 Why would the ex husband want to kill the guy that got his ex-wife off his back he left her so she would f

    1. He left her so she would finally leave him alone if anything he’s happy she met a new guy maybe they will get married and the ex-husband wont have to pay alimony anymore! Its a win win for the ex-husband! I think for some reason you think the ex-husbands are sitting around thinking about their ex wives but that’s not even close to the truth!

  3. I think my ex is sitting around thinking “I better treat this one right” about his new fiancee. I wonder if he questions whether I will ever let her know that he tried to get back together with me two years into their relationship and I encouraged him to finish things with her and said I would not interfere, rebuffing his advances. Mine is not a better dad. He is less involved and enjoys his 85% free time traveling with his fiancee, which is what he always wished we had.

    1. Sounds like you played the classy card, good on you :) It took me a long time to fully appreciate that my ex and I are simply on different paths on this plant, even if we are frequently crossing paths. When I accepted that, I stopped trying to control him, let go of a lot of anger and we’re all better for it.
