Of course the ex doesn't sound like a prize. But unless the OP has real obligations (e.g., work events, urgent medical appointments), he can't expect the ex to watch their kids so that he can go out dating and having fun with other women.

Why not? That's basically what he is doing for her.

My understanding is that the OP's getting the kids every weekend is their official agreement. He should get this schedule modified officially, instead of relying on his ex to agree on a different schedule informally.

Of course he can. It's called "shared custody." Both parents should share the responsibility of raising the children. And both parents have equal opportunity to have a personal life on the weekend. Why should she get to have have all the fun...

Get a babysitter. Problem solved. That's what everyone has to do. You can't expect your wife to babysit when it's not her time or upset her schedule unless she just wants to.
