Just got off the phone with exMIL. Apparently it's so nice that ExP is buying himself a lovely house. Isn't it great that he's finally growing up and turning his life around? No, itfucking isn't. Why couldn't he grow up and turn his life around and buy a nice house with me? Why did it need me to throw him out for him to get a grip and start acting like an adult. And now I feel like the bad guy for splitting up with someone who, when I was with him, was so spectacularly bad with money , regularly couldn't contribute his half of the rent every month! ,
I am still in touch with her because she has a very close relationship with DS. And also because she is a genuinely nice lady. We get on really well and she has been lovely to me both before and since we split up.I think we might have to stop talking about ExP's "news" when she calls though!
Ha! You'd really want to be on a mortgage with someone who couldn't get his act together to contribute and be a family when he already had a child?
Look, if having the biggest responsibility one could ever have didn't make him grow up, getting a bloody mortgage isn't going to. Be grateful he's doing his stuff somewhere where you aren't going to be dragged down by it.
Getting a mortgage isn't some kind of big sign of responsibility and maturity, sadly. Although I'm guessing his poor mother would desperately want it to be, hence her conversation. Nothing however will change the fact that he lost his chance at being a family with his son through sheer irresponsibility.
cardiff I was in your shoes a few years ago. Not a house, but driving lessons and a car. Yes exMIL its effing lovely that your son now has a car and can take the kids out to nice places, considering the selfish twat couldn't even be arsed to walk to the local park with me and DDs but now him and his teenage girlfriend other woman drive up and down the country taking them on "big days out" rage
It was lovely when, 4 months in, the exDPs newGF lost interest in the kids - they're still together - after 2.5 years, but she hasn't seen my kids for the last 20 months of that. And then I had to field questions about why Daddys girlfriend doesn't see them any more I've asked him umpteen times but I just get stonewalled.
