I need a recap on who is related to who. But s/d=step daughter who Chris (your son) allegedly cheated on? The twenty five years thing is throwing me off.
Anyway, it ended strong. Your house, your guests.
S/D is the crazy step daughter. Chris, (the Marine) is her soon to be ex husband who had an affair - if there was ever justification to have an affair, he had it.
The 25 year remark is how long the W/G and I have been married. For those 25 years I have tried to have a positive relationship with the S/D.
For 25 years I have sucked all of her crap, insults, disrespect and down right hatred of me. All I have ever wanted was to provide a positive and, stable environment for her and my kids to grow up in.
To be sure: None of them ever went without anything they needed or wanted. They had a nice home filled with kindness, love and support. They had everything that any upper middle class kid could want. Nice clothes. Opportunities in school to excel. Trips around the world. Support for any pursuit they wanted to try.
Now, these 30+ year old people want to act like high school kids in the middle of a breakup where you have to take sides and prove loyalty.
No I don't.
Who I have a relationship with or, who I host in my house has nothing to do with them. They don't pay my GD bills.
As for supporting the S/D: Seems everyone forgot that she lived in our house. For a year. Rent free. The W/G and I paid for food and watched Squeak and Stellie while the S/D holed up in the bedroom for 20+ hours a day. She wouldn't even eat meals with us.
I am done with her dominating our lives. I'm done with the conversations centered on her. If the other two kids want crazy in their lives, so be it. I want nothing to do with it.
