newlife Posted September 4, 2010 Report Share Posted September 4, 2010 Hello, my Father passed away last January; he and my Mother were married 53 years, my Mother is having an intimate relationship with an 80 year old man, she is 75, and acting like a carefree teenager. I do not begrudge my Mother having someone to talk to and to go places with; it's the intimacy that I don't approve of, she just got back from spending a week at his place and she has done nothing to help me and my two sisters try to understand or accept her new life. All 3 of us are deeply hurt because she announced to us in an email that "Gene" was the love of her life and we were all just going to have to accept it. We did not go to grievance counseling after my Father passed and we really should have, so now I am reaching out to find out how we accept and "deal" with this. Please help.
