Every story has a few sides, and the one his ex-wife has been telling doesn’t make much sense. He wants our help clearing some things up! His ex-wife has made it out like her sisters were the WORST people in the world (he didn’t even know about all of them until after their marriage was over), but once he met them…things seemed really, really different. So what’s the truth?
Here’s what he sent us:
Hey guys, I heard you guys say that every story has two sides. That couldn’t possibly be more true. There is one story that has always bothered me about my ex wife and her sisters. Unfortunately, I’ve only really heard one side, and it has never quite made sense to me. I always suspected that I didn’t know the full truth about it all, because my ex wife’s explanation has never added up. I’ve always been curious, but never wanted to start any drama.
My ex wife’s family lives up north. For years, I had asked to meet them, and she continuously told me no. This never made sense to me, because I had always been very close to my own family, so I couldn’t understand anyone who chooses to be away from their family for so long. Every time the discussion about her family would come up, she would tell me that she chooses to separate herself from them. She said that her parents were always controlling and resentful when she didn’t do what they wanted. When it came to siblings, she rarely mentioned them. In fact, for most of our relationship, I didn’t even know that she had 2 sisters. I had known about one, and she never wanted to talk about her. She just said that she was always awful to her and that her family was very different than her. She made them all out to be small town hillbillies that were resentful that she escaped the small town. I didn’t find out about the second sister until right after their mother died. My ex was planning on going to the funeral alone and I insisted that I go. She finally gave in, but she asked me to avoid her sisters. I was confused by “sisterS”. She explained that she had 2 sisters, one older and one much younger. She implied that they were terrible people, and she really wanted to avoid them.
When we got into town and I met her two sisters, I was so confused. I had spent all this time hating them, but when I met them, they were wonderful. They were so kind. They went out of their way to make me feel welcome. They were nothing like what she described.
Anyway, you can do the dirty work for me and get to the truth. We have been divorced for 6 years. No kids. I have nothing to lose. But I really am curious about what the sisters; side of this whole thing is because I grew to hate them, even though they never personally did anything to me. In fact, it doesn’t add up ‘cause they were SOOOOOO nice.
