  •  My parents are of retirement age. (8+ / 0-)

    They are also divorced. My father married his long-time mistress weeks after that divorce was final.

    Heterosexuals of a certain generation have done more to denigrate marriage and family than all the gays in the world.

      I don't judge, it's not fair.

      I've a friend who barely speaks to his father after the father divorced his mom and re-married a woman 20 years younger than he.  My friend resents "that woman" greatly, as you can imagine.

      I asked him exactly what joy is this vendetta bringing you, or your family?  

      Your father loved this other woman, and she loved him.  After 30 years of marriage to my friends mother the relationship was dead.  It happens.  

      There's little enough joy in this life for any of us.  I can't find it in myself to bag on those who find some for themselves.

      Love is where love is.
