So my boyfriend and I just got into our first argument, because he has these random conversation that start off about the kids to something else. I tolerated it because that is the mother of his kids but saying I love you was the straw that broke the camels back for me. Am I over exaggerating?
I don't think that's right at all. It's one thing to obviously be on close terms with an ex who is the parent of your child. But to say you love them? Either you do it because you love them still, or you think you're doing it for the kid, which would only make them more confused because to a kid "if mummy and daddy love each other why are they not together" etc etc (that would be my view - coming from a child of divorce).
So I don't think you overreacted at all, did he give reasoning for why he says that?
Absolutely not, if he actually said that to his ex- I don't care if she's the mother of the kids, its undeniable that they will always love each other for that reason solely. But to say it I would be insulted.
No!! He should not say that to her anymore! Maybe they are still good friends and close and they can understand they will "always love one another" because they have children together and all that but they should not say it regularly, that is weird.
As for the the conversations about the kids, that's normal and you shouldn't be upset about it. But saying I love you to another woman who isn't a family member while in a relationship is wrong, in my opinion.
