Thabnks for following up. It's not practical for me to return to posts I have already responded to - the system doewsn't easily work that way.
OK, some things usefully clarified. Would i be useful for you to join some of these community activities WITH him, and attend them with him ?
But you're right, sometimes a spouse who doesn't feel happy or comfortable at home, for whatever reason, chooses to get deeply involved in community activities, so as to have a worthy reason to be out and active, without returning home for so long.
Where her activities can't be usefully or conveniently stopped, frustrate her by ignoring her and her comments, and showing no reaction to her. The reaction is presumably what she seeks.
As I understand a court order, it would not forbid her from using the same supermarket - but would forbid her from approaching either of you when there or elsewhere. And if she came up and flung her arms round him, that would be in contempt of court, with potentially serious consequences.
The fact that she's apparently pestering your friends, too, in much the same way, suggests this may not be so much a reaction to whatever your husband had done in the past ( which may have been in reaction, itself, to skilled provocation on her side ) but more an unpleasant hobby she seems to have, enjoying taunting and disturbing other relaionships, because her own has surely failed
