    My niece's husband Greg has been trying to hunt them down. He came over a few minutes ago to park and wait to see if any come in the yard tonight. My dad just came in from smoking a cigarette and told my mom, "Your buddy Greg is here, but I reccon you already know that."

    Essentially, my dad just accused my mom of cheating on him with my niece's husband. My dad accuses my mom of cheating on him at least once a week now. He'll accuse her of having another man just because she takes her dog for a walk on our farm. He'll accuse her of having another man just because she dares to argue back when he's mean to her.

    I swear my dad is flat-out insane. Not to mention evil.

      It doesn't help, but realize your dad is far unhappier than you are and he's just trying to weigh you down.  Plus, as you noted, insane and evil.

      Depending on his distance from you, you can use this to sympathize with him (as you may do after he's gone) or reflect upon it with a bit of pleasure when he's hassling you.

      Both responses are natural. And it's natural to manage both responses at the same time.  I've done it.

      always accuse the spouse of having affairs , they insult the spouse regularly, they are mean and nasty and threaten to never do. I have worked with victims of abuse for decades as a therapist and most victims wish, hope , pray the abuser will just them and never see them again.

      How old is your mother by the way? It sounds like you all and especially your mother have been living in hell.

      Give her a few years of peace?
