I have some strange & sometimes confusing family relationships. I have two (adult) sons. They have different fathers. Dad #1 died when my oldest son was 2. I married Dad #2 when my oldest son was 7.
Two years later, when my youngest son was born, my mother and now ex-mom-in-law (mother of Dad#2) sat in the waiting room. Inside the delivery room was my now ex-hubby and my oldest son's paternal grandmother (mother of Dad#1). She was a neonatal nurse and I wanted her there with me.
My Facebook "friends" list includes sister of Dad#1, mother Dad #1, sister of Dad#2 and, yes, even my ex-hubby (Dad#2).
I was married to Dad#2 for 13 years and we've now been divorced for 13 years. (My sons are now 33 and 24) Lots of water under the bridge. Any hard feelings we had are long gone.
