About 4 months ago my parents got divorced, which I am okay with, and since then my mom has been running around dating every guy she meets. She is currently dating and living with a guy and already talking about marriage.
My mom and I used to have the BEST relationship ever...we could talk about everything and she would give me advice and I could call her anytime and she would answer, now not so much. I talk to her about once or twice a week and its never for more than 5 mins and the conversation seems strained. On the other hand my dad and my relationship has grown greatly. We used to not talk much but now we talk almost everyday and I really appreciate the effort he is putting in to keeping our relationship strong because family is VERY important to me.
I was checking my facebook tonight and my mom had posted some new pictures of her, her new bf, and his daughter. They were professionally taken and look really nice, but she is one that used to HATE pictures being taken of her. I don't have a family picture of my mom, dad, brother, and I since I was 8 and I am now 25.
How could she have gone from one extreme to the other??? I just feel like I have been abandoned by her and am starting to feel like not trying to keep our relationship going anymore. On the other hand I can't do that to my children and keep them away from their grandma. I don't know what to do and have tried talking to my husband about this but he doesn't know what to do either. I feel lost and there are so many emotions running through me I don't know what to think. I don't want these issuses to run into my marriage and start eating on that because we are in a really good spot and we are only going to get better.
