LONG BLOG

The weirdest question you'll never be asked... (non game related)

   0
Ok, this will require some history, so I'll backup before I ever put the transmission into drive.

I've lived with, and have been married to my wife for over 10 years now. We've both got past's, ex's, I've raised her two sons as my own for that long, even to the point that people often mistake me for their biological father. I've been there... for a WHILE.

We all just found out the other day (both the boys live on their own now..) that my wife's ex-husband, the boys real father, died almost 6 days ago. He'd go so far as to disown his own sons because he didn't want the responsibility of taking care of them, even 1 or 2 days a month. He'd even dis-invited, in person, his youngest son from the annual family picnic. This guy is a jerk, control freak deadbeat, but he is the boys dad...

BUT WE HAD TO FIND OUT FROM THE NEWSPAPER, almost 2500 miles away. His obiturary even mentions the boys, but none of the aunts, uncles, cousins, or anyone contacted them. That's how deep the jerkism runs in his family....

Now, everyone is feeling complex emotions, he was the ultimate assholz dad, deadbeat, back almost 10 years on a simple 40$ a month child support (the minimum he could be charged because my wife couldn't bear to put any further burden on him..). We've had problems getting our own morgage because of his bad credit. He has made my life diffucult, but I don't want him to die, he's another human being, and all human life is equal...

BUT, someone then asked me, does that make my Wife a Widow? What? ? Don't I count?

Talk about uncomfortable.

P.S. You can try to defend him, maybe I have a bad perception, but before you do, know this, my wife has a picture of him passed out drunk, with his car parked on the front lawn, running, with his oldest son in the back in a car seat (he took him to the bar with him, instead of sticking around the house, while his wife was at the only job being held in the household at that time)... still think it just might be my perception?

P.P.S... this is catharsis, so please don't think to judge, I needed to tell someone annomous, and you guys are cheaper than a therapist for single issues...
