Re: Need help: My relationship with my parents

I'm the "wicked step-mom" here (DSD is now 17) AND the can do nothing right mom (DS is 11)

BG: DH's first wife passed away when DSD was almost 9- DH & I later met & married (years after my ex & I divorced)


MY DM stayed married to my (not so) DF because she didn't think she could go it alone with kids on her own. I think another factor was that HER DM's parents divorced when divorce "wasn't done". Additionally one of my DM's sibs married someone who was divorced and that upset their parents (my grandparents)

My DM finally divorced my F when she had to make a choice between living or allowing the stress of living with him to kill her (DM had a heart condition - she later had a heart transplant). I totally supported my DM (she later supported me)

My DM & (now ex) ILs were POed when they found out why (ex) H and I were splitting up (another woman).
