Here is the link - The one I want to talk about is the second "question" http://news.yahoo.com/s/ucda/20080729/lf_ucda/wifewholeftandnevercamebacknowtalksofcominghome AS QUOTED FROM THE SITE: [i]DEAR ABBY: My son-in-law, "Tony," is very ill and probably won't make it. It is a terrible tragedy for our family. He will leave behind a bereft wife and children. During his last crisis I traveled across country to support my daughter, "Janet." My husband, "Doug," isn't Janet's father, and now he says he doesn't want me going to the funeral. He says I have spent enough time on Tony, and my visit was a "waste of money." He says Janet wanting me there is a ploy -- that she's "playing me." Granted, she had some hard feelings when I divorced her father and married Doug, but we have made up. I feel I need to be at the funeral to support her. There has been no love lost between Janet and Doug. He does not get along with his own kids from a previous marriage either. But should this interfere with my attending the funeral? Doug says my going would be a betrayal to him and has threatened divorce if I go. How should I handle this? -- TORN IN DES MOINES [/i] Alright so what are your thoughts about the husband "Doug"?? My thoughts are WOW insensitive butthole! What would you do if you were in the womans situation? I didn't quote Abby's response because I want yours - If you want to see it please follow the link. My BIG question is what would you do in this situation???

If I were this woman I would make plans to be there for my daughter *and* to divorce this jerk. He obviously cares about no one other than himself and, really, life is too short to waste a day of it with someone like that.

I agree! I think there is A LOT more to this story but we will never know. Either way she needs to be there for her daughter "ploy" or not!

I would say, support your daughter. If the bum leaves, good riddance.
