This man has every right to his feelings and Carolyn just told him they don't matter. IF this daughter has mental issues, "mom" should approach daughter on it as it affects the boy. Carolyn is simply asking this guy to continue to enable a situation he doesn't have to. I'd recommend he find some hobbies or interests of his own and be able to do those instead of being forced to invest in a young child. This would give a clear indicator to his wife that he wants (and deserves) to enjoy his golden years...not raise another child.

You divorce spouses not children. Maybe her golden years and enjoyment include being a grandmother? Maybe he has an issue with keeping a relationship with the child of a former husband? Maybe there is a bigger underlying issue.

Grandma may be enjoying her golden years just fine being a grandma.
