Neely was like that for a time too. I wasn't jealous, but it would infuriate me when he would bend to her desires when I could see how manipulative she was being. But honestly I just think that's how men are. They take the path of the (immediate) least resistance. My ex hucrasband has children with another woman who is bat crap crazy (to a slightly lesser degree than Neely's ex) and he would constantly give in to her just to get her to shut up. Even if he knew in the long run the problem would extend or escalate, it was easier to just say yes and shut her up. His last child with her turned 18 in January and up until that time, he was still doing it because he hadn't been able to reign her in over the years.
