husband wants picture of self , x-wife & their grandkids

My husband wants a picture of himself, X-wife and their grandkids. I am not included. I don't agree, and feel it sends the wrong message to everyone to include me! He said we can get other pictures. He says it's for the grandkids. I said I don't have a problem as long as I am right beside you. Your thoughts please...

While your husband’s desire to be photographed without you seems harsh, consider mitigating factors. How long you have been married may make a difference. I do not think his having his photo with this previous wife and their mutual grandchildren is an odd occurrence if their children were grown before you two married and you are not considered a grandparent by the grandchildren. On the other hand, exclusion does send a strange message to grandkids if they are calling you granny too.

I wish you good luck with this one.
