  • I would forgive but i wouldnt forget. Its not my place to really forgive. Its my sons. Its my sons mistakes he makes and I cant make him decide what to do becasue he is an adult. Sure I wouldnt like it if he went back but I would learn to get along with her for family sake. I wouldnt want to lose my son because I dislike and cant get along with hr.

  • While the mama grizzley wants to protect our kids from harm, he is an adult & its his relationship. It would be very hard to put on that smile & act like all is fine, but do so for your son's sake! He forgave her, and will want your support & to make things less awkward at family gatherings. Just think to yourself "And the Oscar goes to... ME!" -lol

  • For me it would depend. If it happened once and she was apologetic about it and worked hard to prove she was sorry and that things had changed, I could easily forgive it. If it happened repeatedly and I watched my child get hurt over and over again with no apology or anything, no I don't think I could forget

  • I agree, I have 3 sons, and it would be difficult, but I would respect my son's decision, and be polite. She is family. As mommy of two388 said, I wouldn't want to lose my son because I couldn't get past this.....

  • It wouldn't be up to you to forgive as she didn't do it to you.

  • I hope to be able to keep my nose out of it. If it ever happens to either of my children, I hope to tell them what I think of the situation and then let it go.

  • My MIl & FIL still love me & they know I made a mistake. I was so ashamed. People make mistakes. They love their son and so love who their son loves. Please have a forgiving heart. If they are truly trying to make it work, your support is important.

  • ok well im gonna tell you from experience i have the prick of an ol man and its hard to find someone to talk to about him because in the end him and i are gonna be back together and like it never happen but of course the person i chose to talk to about him still hates him becuase they care about me of course or i woldnt have chose to talk to them. its not like im gonna come to you and brag about all the good things he does i dont need someone to listen to that and cry on there shoulder about how awesome he is. so if you dont forgive or at least realize its his relationship and in the end hes gotta live it and lust let it go it might ruin your relationship with him and the next time he needs to talk to someone it might not be you or it might not be anyone and he will just suffer inside i hope this helps gl
