My mom is 15 years younger than my dad. I’m starting to resent him so much for the age gap.
My mom was 19, my dad 34 when they got together. The had me when my dad was in his early forties and my mom was in her late twenties.
My dad was always too worn out to play with me when I was a kid, or do anything strenuous like camping. I got made fun of for having an older dad.
He’s got the beliefs of a grandpa, like he’s from an entire different generation from my mom.
And now that he’s in his mid sixties he’s having all these health problems, and my mom has become his 24/7 live in nurse.
And it’s like he doesn’t even see how much he’s leached off her over the years, or that it’s messed up that she’ll never even have a retirement, and has to stay home and take care of an elderly man when she isn’t even 50 yet.
And he’ll probably die like 2 decades before her, and leave her alone, and then who takes care of her?
I mean I will and I’ll be happy to, but it just makes me furious that he was happy to let his family suffer and leach off them just so he could have a younger wife.
I know she regrets marrying him but she’s too good of a person to leave, and it’s honestly heartbreaking and I kind of wish he’d just hurry up and die so she can actually live her life instead of having it siphoned away by an old vampire.
