Matt-maybe that is unfortunate. Maybe not.
To be frank, it took over a year of having his feelings FULLY RESPECTED before Maca let go of the topic of divorce.
Two years before he could stomach the kids talking about GG.
A month-you have made awesome steps towards facing what matters to you. But I don't hear that you feel respected or understood regarding your needs.
I am glad she is admitting to some unreasonable things in counseling. So that you felt heard.
And Jane-yes, I have written ad nauseum on putting kids first. In a variety of examples. Including DIngedhearts original thread.
But I have limited my comments here in recent years. I have other higher priority obligations.
I only read this thread today as someone pointed it out to me and I am sitting in the hospital with my pukey, prego kiddo while she gets rehydrated and antinausea meds.
