My husbands parents divorced like over 20 years ago and they are still bitter. Especially the ex wife and the wife of my husbands father. It all started about some money issue, I heard both sides and My husband and I stayed the hell out of it. Ex pays Ex wife spousel support and apparently an increase was overlooked, when found Ex husband paid in full like 10k! anywho... she said he was doing it on purpuse and he said honest mistake by his accountant....WHO CARES!
My problem is family functions like tomorrow is my husbands birthday. I have to throw a birthday lunch and a birthday dinner seperate of course so his parents don't have to look at each other! Same thing happen for my daughter's birtday, had to hold two parties, two cakes, two of everything and it was exhausting!
I am angry because I never get to enjoy these days because I am doing double work!
I told my husband this year for my Claire's birthday their will be one party, sit at oppisite sides of the room for all I care but if you can't put aside differences for your granchildren than they are being selfish and not setting a good example for Claire at all. She loves them all!
Do you think I am asking too much??? Will I create just an uncomfortable party and people won't enjoy themselves? This is why I have put up with it for so long.... trying to make everyone happy so the party is fun. Thanks feel better now I was screaming it at my inlaws in my head as I wrote it on here!
