How to reject an apology
SD37 & her father had a falling out several years ago. She tried to forbid him from maintaining a relationship with her soon-to-be ex husband (they became GOOD friends during her marriage.) After 9 months, DH finally called her, she came over, she cried, apologized for her behavior and they made up.
Last July, SD37 verbally attached me in front of her father, and WE haven't spoken to her in 8 months. DH really never understood her slights to me, but this was right in front of his face.
I have told DH if he wants to clear the air with her to go right ahead, but she is not welcome in our home, and he agrees. So I hope to never have anything to do with her again. She ruins EVERY relationship she touches; parents, cousins, step-brother...
We will be seeing her weekly at the SGKs baseballs games. DH will barely say hello to her, he tries to avoid her at all costs. In the unlikely event she approaches us, what do you say when rejecting a fake apology? "You'll never change?" "Too little, too late?"
My DH's feelings are "If she can't have a relationship with us without all the drama, then he doesn't want a relationship with her at all". Or is that the appropriate response?
