    Usually when you come across individuals like these it can be quite bothersome. To be honest with you, there is no "Blue Print" out there as to how you should deal with situation like these.What I personally think might be effective however, is not to try to go "toe-to-toe" with these exes. You see, it is simple as this - it takes two to start an argument, but takes only one to crash it! (As long as that person does not get up in your face), let he/she keeps talking; sooner or later it will register that it's over and it's time to move on. Thou I must admit that some of these exes keep bickering back and forth for long time, before finally giving up, especially when they have personality issues!

    Let your spouse deal with the ex!  If they have children they are connected for life.  Unfortunately some just never get over the anger...usually because they haven't found happiness themselves.  If you react to the angry spouse, they win.  Deal with her only when you have to and leave the rest up to him.  Hopefully, she'll eventually find happiness and won't be quite as annoying.

    Be better than the ex, don't allow yourself to get draw into any petty crap.  Stay positive and just know that you are not as annoying as she/he is.  Don't get goaded or draw into an argument - it really does take two and if you don't participate, you are the winner.

    Being a first class act, and not getting down and dirty with the ex, will highlight to your spouse the very reason he chose you.
