So it has come to this
My daughter told my ex that Grandma G had passed away and that the funeral went well. He said he was glad to hear that. He did not contact me directly to send condolences nor did he ask M to pass them on, despite the fact that this was his mother in law for 16 years and we been going out for two years before marriage. What would it hurt him to just be decent? But to do so would show he still cared but won’t admit it or that he blatantly doesn’t. Either way he has re-affirmed my image of him as a cold person who is devoid of all emotion.
I was tempted to send him a sarcastic e-mail thanking him for sending his condolences but then that would show I cared whether he did or not. I don’t really but it does reafirm what I thought of him and I am so thankful that he did me a favour by ending the marriage. Sometimes things can really turn out to be a blessing in disguise.
