I got an email yesterday from an ex-daughter-in-law.
I have always loved her and been grateful she is the mother of our two granddaughters.
But, she wrote a sad letter about how she feels our son is cheating her financially.
I don't want to be involved in this.
I don't want to know this or hear about it.
I do, however, want him to be honorable and do the right thing.
Which he told me he is doing all that the law has required of him.
It's so sad.
What I wanted to say to her was this:
This would never have happened; you wouldn't even be in this situation if YOU hadn't walked out on him, and abandoned your two daughters when they were just little.
It's true, you had second thoughts and came back to your daughters, but YOU have been the cause of this whole heartache.
And, I'm sorry that you are unhappy, but I'm on our son's side. I think he is doing what is required of him, and I don't want to be caught in the middle of this mess of your own making.
Ah, Life is hard.
And, divorce STINKS!
