Re: Sick dad's still alive, but mom needs to get out and meet a man

Hello M1942,

As we are not supposed to pass judgement on this site and it is not in my nature to do so, please allow me to say a few words:

It sounds that the marriage portion of your post is a relationship issue but allow me to go beyond that.

If your mother's heart isn't in it; resenting your father and failing to provide him with the adequate care that is needed;she needs to find someone(relative,etc.) or some facility that will do so.

A legal seperation can be discussed.

Above all else, she needs to be honest with him; subtly.

That conflicted feeling she's having may speak volumes as to her true feelings.

Perhaps a weeks vacation(alone) may put things into perspective.

What I have provided here is a difficult answer to a difficult question;simply food for thought.

Take care.

Respectfully,

Phoenix
