Father dating after mothers death
I am 36, so part of me feels like I shouldn't be so childish about this--however--they are an extremely insensitive twosome.My father will not speak of my mom; it's as if she never existed! Is it wrong to fess up to him and tell him how upsetting I find all of this?
My dad, who got divorced from my siblings' mom when they were children and was distant from them for most of their childhood, talked about spending more time with his kids.She'd been having bleeding problems for a while, and her doctor sent her to the ER.She had had many health problems over the years, including a Hepatitis C infection from a blood transfusion in the late 80s and a stroke in 1995, but we didn't have any reason to think she was critically ill.Partly that is because you may be feeling a need to remain loyal to your mother and respectful of her memory, and you may be worried that your father will cease to remember and love this irreplaceable person you both have lost.
Remember how much you cared whether your parents liked your high school boyfriend or girlfriend?
i figured it was a way to distract himself from the pain.
