What's wrong with these SKIDS?
It is truly shocking how some of them act even after many years of their parents being divorced. My sister was divorced just 2 years ago, she has since dated a guy, which actually, none of us like...but her kids have been amazing. None of the three, ages 14, 17, 20 have complained to her or anyone else in the family about her new boyfriend, etc...when we see the kids, not once have they mentioned if their dad is seeing someone or not...I assume they do the same the other way around. Not once, even when my sister is with her new guy (which is another story), have I seen them disrespect this guy, nor my sister. And this is a rather recent divorce. Their parents were married for 20 yrs, so not like some other kids whose parents were only married for a couple of years. I think that even my DH has learned not to tolerate crap from his daughter by seeing that this is NOT a divorce thing, but a selfish, pain in the ass kid thing.
Heck, my husband has a highschool friend who invited his father and wife to his wedding, but NOT his mother's husband! And guess what? His mom and stepdad take care of his kids ALL the time for him to go party with his wife...heck, they are the ONLY ONES in this darn country that have taken care of my son for me to get a break one time about 7 yrs ago...so they are both nice people.
I really just don't understand how anyone puts up with these kids who disrespect them and want their DADDY to go to things alone with them. In my sister's house that does not fly at all. If the kids don't like it, too bad.
