Looking for Opinions.....
My youngest sister married my mother's sister's husband's sister's son. So he is related, some sort of cousin, but not by blood. And honestly, before they married, I never even met him. But he is close with all my cousins etc. He is the father of my neice and nephew. So no matter what, he will always be in the family. In my opinion, my sister should have thought about that when she married "in" the family. Just sayin....
They were married for 15 years, had two wonderful children and then divorced. My sister is a control freak and he was very child like, but a nice guy.
I refuse to be ugly to (or gossip about) him. He is my neice & nephew's father. Perhaps not the best father, but that is between him and his nearly adult children (17 & 19) now.
Here is where it begins to get sticky. My eldest sister is good friends with the ex's new girlfriend. (They've been divorced 5 years now.) My youngest sister thinks the rest of the family should be angry with the oldest sister because she is in camp with the 'enemy'.
So now, the youngest sister is trying to get the rest of the family to draw a line in the sand. I refuse to. Their divorce wasn't because of anything sinister. And honestly, he should have a medal for staying with her as long as he did.
I won't be told who I can or who I can't play with. Am I wrong on this one?
