Why is it, that when a relationship goes south, whether it be marriage, or just a partnership, the mother and the mother's family assumes most responsibility for the children who were products of that partnership?
Example: When I was pregnant, SO's sister insisted she would bend over backwards and yadda yadda to help me with "whatever I needed" for the baby. I didn't abuse it, or take advantage, matter of fact, I don't ask them for shit. Well, I figured she could come get the baby today since it's been a few weeks since she's seen him. Nope. She won't. So, to my mom's house DS goes.
Yet again, the mother and the mother's family assumes the majority of the responsibility. I feel like if you don't want to be involved, then DON'T BE INVOLVED. Gray areas are stupid, and I do not have time for it. This may sound harsh, but seriously. Stop being a fair-weather aunt. Just my opinion.
And don't get me started on how rude she is. HA! I'm respectful and cordial to her all the time, regardless of the fact I am not with her brother anymore. She, however, is unable to act her age (34) and return the favor. She treats me with blunt sarcasm and subtle rudeness. I've had enough.
ETA: I have been trying to reach her for the last couple of days. She ignored me until today.
