Not really sure what I'm expecting out of this. But I'm not really in a good place to be berated about this, so please, play nice. Issue: Husband and I went to watch the Superbowl at my uncle's house. I had invited my dad to hang out with us. He came, but left in the middle of the game to go pick up his new girlfriend. He obviously knew we were going to be there, and did not bother to mention it to me. Background: My parents got divorced about 5 years ago. I knew they hadn't been in love for a long time, but it still hit me pretty hard, and was a huge change in my life. I think it was especially difficult, because I had been raised with a 'high moral standard'. No sex before marriage, no sex outside of marriage, no cheating, and divorce only under the most extreme circumstances. The divorce was difficult, but I could handle it. The worst part was my dad was shacking up with the woman he cheated on my mom with. I was very mad for a long time. But through circumstances I met her, had to spend some time with her (if I wanted to see my dad). Eventually I got to a relatively comfortable place with her (she was very nice, did lots of stuff for my sis, seemed like a good person). I was even okay with him bringing her to our wedding. 3 months later, apparently he has dumped her. (he had moved out a year or so ago, and I knew they were having issues. Although he NEVER discusses that stuff with me). He told me a few weeks ago he had a new girlfriend. I was , but let it go. Now he surprises me with meeting her, while I am not mentally prepared at all. My husband isnt much of a help with this. He mostly just suggests I should get over it, "like I did with the first girlfriend." As we were going to my uncle's house, I thought my dad might skip with us to hang with his girlfriend (he had said he might have plans). And my husband says "yeah, hes probably banging her right now." Since the divorce, my dad and I have never had a super open relationship. And I know I have zero influence over who he would choose to date. I guess maybe I'm looking for an easy way to get comfortable, instead of going through another 4 awkward years, or until he dumps her for some new girl.
