Re: Moving after divorce with a manipulative ex wife.
Great! Disappear from her life and move on with yours. About the kids....when you have your kids be the best dad you can, and when she has them enjoy being a free man. As long as you know she's taking proper care of them when they are in her custody you have nothing to worry about. If there isn't enough communication, then buy them a cell phone so they can call you whenever they want. I personally make sure my kids know that they are my top priority. I go to the parent-teacher conferences at their school, go to their various sports lessons/activities, chaperone school field trips, check their homework, help with science fair projects, take them to religious activities, and let them pick activities they want to do with me. It's not hard to be the better parent and if you are then the kids will naturally take it upon themselves to keep you involved in their lives and there will be nothing she can do about it.
