I don't understand why people can't be happy with what they have? Why is it they are always looking for more? My daughter had the best marriage. Her husband loves her more then life itself. And now she is throwing that away. I told her the grass isn't greener on the other side. But I guess she thinks I don't know what I am talking about. And now she won't even talk to me. She started a new job, and now I think she thinks the newly divorce guy would be better to be with then the man that really loves her. And what this is doing to my grand-daughter is making me angree. I just don't know what to do to make her understand that she should Thank God for the blessing in her life. Two months ago she claimed she loved her family and now she says she's not in love with her husband anymore. I wasn't born yesterday!!! So newly divorce guy is going to destroy her happiness and she is so blinded by pretty words. Does anyone have any sugestions?

she obviously does not value her family and is blinded by promises of a new love... sometimes, we have to admit that when we have grown too much accustomed to our current love, we are always looking for those sweet things we used to enjoy when our love is new... have you talked to her about this? at this time, i think she needs someone who can wake her up in her sleep and give her a reality check.

Obviously I'm an outsider in this situation, but sometimes being someone who loves you isn't enough, I don't think I could stay in a relationship or marriage if I no longer loved my partner, I think that can be just as bad an environment for children as the trauma of a family breaking up. In my personal experience, it was actually better that my parents decided to divorce and they're much happier now because of it, which makes my life happier too. Again, this may not be the case here, but I can only speak of what I know =) It is a shame that this is happening in your life, and maybe your daughter will be wrong and wish that she had taken your advice, but I guess at times we need to make those mistakes and take those risks in order to find out. I know it's hard to imagine that this divorced man your daughter is now interested in loves her more than her husband, or that she's truly interested in him, but maybe she really is. Maybe she hasn't been happy with her relationship with her husband for more than two months, but of course she still loves her family. Sometimes, even though it seems selfish, we need to pursue our own happiness. I hope everything turns out well in yours and your daughter's life =) Have a great day!
