Basically me and my fiance are planning on getting married in July, and hopefully moving into a pad in Catterick soon afterwards. She currently lives in Reading with her 5 year old daughter from a previous relationship. We have been together nearly three years and I can't wait for us to live together. The problem is her ex. He is a bit awkward to say the least and has kicked up a fuss on a number of occasions about relatively minor things, he still tries to control her life. We have never stopped him from seeing his daughter and he sees her every other weekend. The other half told him we were planning to move away together and he went off the handle and claimed we couldn't and he didn't give us his permission to move and take his daughter. Now I can sympathise with his position but ultimately can he hold his ex a prisoner in the same town for his convenience for the rest of their childs upbringing? We have not said he couldn't come to see her just as often, and we even offered to knock the petrol money off his CSA payments but he claims he won't budge. Im sure this isn't a new situation and I wonder if anyone has any experience of it?
