I have told him repeatedly to not introduce me as is wife, in fact, I told him not to introduce me at all. I even gave him examples.
The thing is that he does this in front of my kids and other parents. I don't want to start things in front of my kids or other parents. Some know we are divorcing and live apart and find it strange that he still calls me "Mrs torn" or "my wife".
Its really confusing to my kids also. He has been doing nice things for me, like things I have no control over. I mentioned the tire on my car and at dropoff, he checked the tire and filled it with air while I was in my house.
I don't think he gets that we are divorcing. Actually, he doesn't want a divorce and is doing everything to stall.
Don't play that game.

I only had to do this a few times before X stopped doing this.
You don't have to make a scene, but you can certainly correct him. It only makes him look bad then.
Is there anyway you can stay out of the situation where he has the opportunity to introduce you to anyone by not being in his presence?
He also is the king of tire pressure checking, oil change inquiring, and help offering.
Not to t/j but he was also fired again (FFS!) and now his children, previously enrolled in any rehab therapy you can think of, no longer have health insurance. A real winner, that one.
F both of TG.
Just yesterday I ran into an acquaintance who had a recent conversation with him, the gist of which was, " yeah, we are having a GLITCH in our relationship ( yes he actually used that word!) and this transitioning time is difficult but you know, I'm hopeful. "
Which of course elicited all kinds of "oh your poor thing" responses, which of course was the point.
Idiot. We are DIVORCED - and you are still sleeping with MOW, AND cheating on her too! Bet ya didn't share THAT tidbit.
