Members dentholla Posted December 30, 2013 Members Report Share Posted December 30, 2013 My mother passed away in March of this year suddenly. Although she was very ill for many years her death still was a surprise. My Dad has since then done a myriad of things that make no sense to me. I expected his behavior to be erratic however some of the things he has said to me in the past 9 months are downright painful to hear...like how he was spending Christmas with his "new family". What?The reason for starting this thread is I am at a loss on what to do about his dating situation. I get it...people move on. I'm also okay with it on some levels. My parents were married for 42 years and he had a girlfriend within 6 weeks. We are here at the end of the year and I've never met her, been asked to meet her, and there is now drummed up "bad blood" because of the mountains of money that he is spending on her (not his money by the way...money he received from life insurance). I mentioned it and boom - hit the roof. Noone wants him to be happy. His girlfriend "needs". I say she doesn't need a $700 pair of boots - take her to Kohls or something.Has anyone else gone through this? He can't complete a phone call without hanging up on me because he doesn't like what I have to say. He's acting like a child. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
