DH finally got around telling his dad yesterday about his decision to get a divorce. Apparently it didn't go very well. DH went over there about 10 yesterday morning and then I got a call from him at 1215 asking if anyone was at the house. I told him no and asked who would be. He told me he didn't know if his parents had come by. When he got home he told me that he was only at his parents for half an hour before he got pissed and stormed out. He said that after he left he sent both his parents a text saying not to contact him and that he'd get in touch with them when he felt like talking to them. I felt bad that he's refusing to have a relationship with his parents because of this but then I realized he is the one choosing to do this and it has nothing to do with me. He actually told me that I'm not allowed to tell his parents where he's living after he moves out next month!
I guess what pissed DH off the most was when his dad asked him about marriage counselling. When DH said no, his dad asked if he thought that he would be able to look Jackson in the eye when he gets older and tell him truthfully that he tried everything he could to make our marriage work. I'm guessing DH didn't like the fact that his parents were questioning whether he'd really tried or not.
I decided to go talk to his parents last night so I texted his mom to see if it was okay. I didn't know how they would be feeling about me after DH stormed out like he did but thankfully they still feel the same way about me. They told me that Jackson and I are welcome to go there for dinner whenever we want and if we need somewhere to go after the lease is up at the house we're welcome to stay with them for a while. They also said that they're willing to help out financially so that I'm not struggling to make ends me and taking care of Jackson. My mil told me that I'll always be part of the family. I'm so thankful that I have such wonderful in-laws!
