Yikes. Thanks for your support, Dad.
And I thought my dad can be a jerk. Wow.
Why must the rest of the family jump through hoops because the ex-wife fears she won't "be comfortable" in the presence of her ex-husband's potential girlfriend, when he hasn't even started dating yet? Yes, dad may be a jerk, ex-hubby may be a jerk, but it is HER decision whether or not to hang with them. Perhaps hubby will man-up and start dating Clara Barton, rather than the skank that this lady sees as her inevitable replacement. Let things play out for awhile, and quit screaming for attention.
fattyfatamy, you have obviously never been in her shoes or you are one that doesnt care for the feelings of others. Dad should show a certain respect for his daughter and tell son in law that he wants to maintain a friendship but he needs to respect his daughter and her wishes. Daughter just need not go to certain events, heck host one or two at your home with hubby uninvited or anyone who will try to bring him along. Dont let it stop your life, sounds like your family has your back.
@mnmaggiemn: Sometimes there is more to life than "feeling comfortable". Sometimes it's better to feel independent, or strong, or free of what others (especially jerks) may think. I've been in lots of situations that were unpleasant for various reasons, but I always knew that "these too shall pass". I certainly never needed (or required!) others to change their lives just so I could feel more comfortable. Try being strong sometimes. It is quite liberating!
