I highly doubt that you are the only one supporting her and the children with monthly CS payments.
She has expenses, food, shelter, bills, mortgage, gas, insurance, etc just like you do and Im sure CS doesn't cover all the above.
You might not be able to see those expenses as you are focused on her and her spending.
Does she work? Is she maybe saving alittle for the children's education?
Don't you want her to have some money set aside?
