Hubby and I have been married for almost 4 years now and dating for about that long. I still struggle with how to handle Mother’s Day for his mother, who has been pretty absent in his life (his dad did most of the raising of him) and even borderline abusive in the time he did live with her as a small child.
I have felt the desire to at least do something small for her since she did bring him into the world, but he is more resistant. Plus, add in the fact that most cards are super lovey dovey. (I looked for a card for about 30 minutes today.)
