My DH and I have weathered the latest storm between us, and have found common ground again. We talked out our feelings, apologized for our missteps, and one can only hope these disagreements will make us stronger. We had a small get together last week at our home for SS20's birthday. Just family, and SD16 did make an appearance. DH said while she was here she said she wanted to get together, and then she called him the next day to invite him to dinner. He was pretty excited, it starts looking like maybe the clouds start to break up and things may move in the right direction. He took her to eat, and that evening I asked how it went. I could tell he was being vague, although he did say she was not planning to move back in here at all, and that she said she was feeling better about being in one house. Nothing negative, so i assumed everything was ok and I was glad they were able to start getting together. This week he seemed like something was on his mind, but he kept saying everything was fine. This evening he finally let it out. When they went to dinner, she told him she wanted him to give her money because since she wasnt living here anymore, he doesn't have to pay for her food or things she needs. She thought $40 a month would be good. And it was only fair since the boys are here (SS on school break, my son lives here while commuting to school) and we buy groceries for the house and include them in dinner out sometimes. Oh, and he owes her $50 because she was not able to go to a movie we invited her to as a family, but she and her boyfriend went to see it on a different day. Since we paid for the boys and their girlfriends to go with us, he needs to give her the money she and her boyfriend spent. From what he told me, he was so taken aback that he told he he would think about it, and has been stewing on it all week. He has texted her and called a few times to check in, and she has ghosted him except to text once to ask if he had made a decision about giving her money yet. Am I crazy, or is this messed up?
