A Custody Exchange Turned Boundary Dispute: Who Crossed the Line? ⚖️

In this tale of post-divorce co-parenting, a simple custody exchange turned into a boundary dispute. Our protagonist, a 40-year-old divorced father, found himself in hot water after his ex-wife accused him of disrespecting her boundaries. All he did was take a peek inside her house while dropping off their kids. Despite his attempts to clarify his intentions, the ex-wife remained adamant about her perceived disrespect. This led to a proposal to revert to their original public meeting place for custody exchange. However, the ex-wife saw this as a lack of compromise. So, who's in the wrong here? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🌐
