Hi, I have been a ‘lurker’ for a while but due to an impending family crisis I have registered!
Any help appreciated!
My mother and father married much to the distate of his parents and they have never really got on, my mum hates his parents and they feel fairly similar towards her (there main reason for disliking her is that she is catholic - the first thing she said to my dad when she heard they were engaged was ‘you know you’ll never be able t divorce her!’) anyhow the problem is that whilst over the past 5 years things have gotten a little better his dad has now been diagnosed with (possibly) terminal lung cancer at the age of79. My dad feels ever so guillty and my mum is torn she cannot stand his parents for their behaviour - they felt it necc to point out to me at our first meeting that i was adopted (i already knew but!)- but she feels for them in this time they are not religious but she says prayers for them and doesnt know how to approach them, My dads mum is upset mainly because she will be left alone and this scares her i dont know what to do!
