So my Mom recently (April) left my stepdad. They've been married or almost 22 years, and my younger sister and I are having a hard time with it. She's playing the victim, but the fact is she left him for a man she works with. We suspected as much but didn't have any proof until we met up with her the other day. She took us to lunch and asked if we'd like to see her new place. When we said "Ok", she said she had to tell us something, which ended up being that she''s living with the new guy. When we became upset/angry, she acted as though we had no right to feel that way. Excuse me? Yes, I'm angry! Are my sister and I in the wrong - or does this make sense to you?

It's normal that you feel angry or hurt. Especially if your SD was like your Dad growing up. But, I don't know all the whys as to your parents divorce (and you may not either). Right now, your mom is doing what she thinks is best for herself (which isn't a bad thing if all of her children are grown). This is going to be hard, but try not to judge the new guy before you get to know him. I've done that...you'll just end up feeling like crap if he's a nice guy. Good luck and try and stay calm.

I'm sorry you guys have to deal with this. No honey you are not wrong, Not at all! Mom has done something very wrong and I think she just doesn't know how or is to selfish to own up to it.
