I am so glad I found this group as I have no one in my family that I can discuss this with. The problem is not with my marriage, but my son and his wife.
We live in a small town where my son, his wife and 2 children live as well. We dont get to see them that often due to their hectic life schedule.
My husband works at one of the two big name hardware stores in town. One day while he was working my daughter-in-law came around the corner of an aisle in the store...with ANOTHER MAN! My husband said the look on her face was one of fear and surprise. She did not know he worked there as he had just gotten the job about a month ago. She introduced him as "their contractor." They are getting ready to sell their house and my son has been doing all the work on it to get it ready for the market. My son practically built that house from the ground up and installed everything....flooring, electric, cabinets, bathroom, etc., you name it. So they do not need a "contractor" and I think that was just something she said to cover up who this guy was. They were in the rope section, so why would a contractor need to bring her to the store to look at rope?
Anyway, we decided not to say anything to my son or anyone else about it as we didnt want to start anything without facts. Then yesterday another strange thing happened. My husband went to the park to sit and relax in the sun. We have all shade trees at our house so our yard is shady. He said he was sitting with a book and saw a white van pull into the parking lot. A woman gets out all dressed up, hair done and heels. IT WAS MY DAUGHTER-IN-LAW! She got out of the van and started texting on her phone and smoked a cigarette. He said it went back and forth for the duration of 2 cigarettes and then she got in the van and left. She did not see him as he was at an angle and had the book in front of his face.
So the question is...due to the first incident where she was with a guy, and now this second incident where she is all dressed up in the middle of the day and stopped at this park to text, like making plans to meet someone?
What would you do if you were in this situation? It makes me sick to my stomach to think she may be cheating on him.
I’ve been friends with her since we were in college. She and my sister were roommates so I’ve spent a lot of time with her eating take outs and pizza. We’ve shared all those tough time in college and broke months, post-graduation. In most romantic movies, she and I would’ve ended up together but sadly this is real life. I was offered a year of internship in Madrid and it would be stupid...
Long story short, I broke my wrist last fall, had surgery and rehab twice a week for 6 weeks with a removable splint; then, as that painful process was ending, had breast cancer, two surgeries and 6 weeks of daily radiation. The good news is an excellent prognosis; the bad news is that my BF of 12 years was not attentive at all to my needs. I had almost no use of my hand for weeks while it...
