If you don't love them, someone else will. I'm not even talking about husbands here, but kids. We have an 18 year old young man whose parents don't/haven't cared for him and he long ago adopted me as his surrogate momma. He just left my house. I fed him a hot supper and baked an extra ham and sent it home with him. His own mom would be ticked if she knew, but she won't do anything for him!
