I won't go into the full history of my life. But most recently (2 years ago) I was extremely sick after a back surgery I had. My mom came and stayed with me to help take care of me, DD, and DS while DH worked. In total she stayed for nine months and my dad visited several times. I never asked her to stay and I was always extremely thankful and expressed that all the time. After she went back home to my dad he said he wanted a divorce because he wasn't happy and didn't love her anymore. Fast forward a year to today and my mom said it was my fault they are getting a divorce because, "I stayed with you and took care of you when I should have been home taking care of my marriage." My parents have been married for 35 years, never had a good marriage, and have never been happy. If it hadn't been for the last year of pure nastiness from my mom, her accusation might have actually hurt. But I just can't get over the fact that she SAID it. What parent would ever say that? I've been racking my brain how a child (adult or otherwise) could EVER be the cause of a divorce. I called her out on it immediately that it wasn't true and it was her way of deflecting and avoiding responsibility for something else I had brought up to her.
But I'm curious...what are your thoughts? What is the worst thing your parent(s) have said to you?
