Your divorce is finally over; you've divided your property and settled on a spousal support amount. You think that all issues related to your divorce and custody have been discussed, argued about, and settled.
You pour yourself a cup of tea or a glass of wine and finally sigh with relief. Despite the animosity of the divorce, the threats about the children, the suspicions about income being hidden from you, you and your ex-spouse finally came to an agreement and decided that it would be best to always appear congenial in front of your children.
You toast to how smart you've been and to the fact that you can finally get on with your life.
Or can you?

You need to decide quickly because how you relate to your ex-spouse's special friend or lover will impact your children.
