By newlife , September 4, in Loss of a Parent or Grandparent. Hello, my Father passed away last January; he and my Mother were married 53 years, my Mother is having an intimate relationship with an 80 year old man, she is 75, and acting like a carefree teenager. I do not begrudge my Mother having someone to talk to and to go places with; it's the intimacy that I don't approve of, she just got back from spending a week at his place and she has done nothing to help me and my two sisters try to understand or accept her new life. All 3 of us are deeply hurt because she announced to us in an email that "Gene" was the love of her life and we were all just going to have to accept it.

I am 36, so part of me feels like I shouldn't be so childish about this--however--they are an extremely insensitive twosome. My father will not speak of my mom; it's as if she never existed! He says constantly that he wouldn't change one thing in his life as it is today for anything. I don't know what my question is, or how you can help, but I am just so angry!
