DamnYankees: Whats the normal etiquette for second spouses in this situation?


If the person is still alive you introduce yourself to the other parent. I dunno how it goes if the other parent died.

Why so "serious?"

If he's anything in real life like his character on HIMYM, as I'd like to believe, then great.

I like him as an actor because he plays awkwardness right. From "Freaks & Geeks" to HIMYM and "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", he's played his characters well.

I would think something like this. Seems the classy thing to do. "Hey, id like to be a stepparent to your flesh and blood, that cool? Youre still their flesh and blood and can visit whenever you want."

Just tell him to keep his dick in his pants this time.

It's all part of the plan. He obviously killed Heath Ledger, staged it to make it look like an accident, then stole his girlfriend. Some men just want to watch the world burn. Or maybe he's more Muppet than man now.

If I happen to come across him between taking my kids to Target or the park in Chicago, I'll pass your request on to him. Let's keep Fark real.

Went to a local youth circus production "Showdown" by Circus Juventas . One of the lead performers (playing Billy the Kid) looked nigh on identical to Heath Ledger, it was pretty uncanny.
Youth on the bottom left. Awesome performance

Hmm. One of my dad's aunts died when her oldest kid (of 5) was about 10. About 30 years ago, the father of those kids died. Currently, those "kids" (the youngest of which is over 50 at this point) all refer to her as mom, their kids call her grandma, and the rest of us her call her "aunt". And we refer to her current husband as "uncle". It's a little different because the woman in question was an extremely close family friend who grew up literally next door to my grandfather and his siblings. So adopting her into the family was really easy to do. But my feeling on this sort of thing is it's generally best to go along the lines of being open to adding people to your family. Thinking about it more, I guess one of my uncles who died at 42 has a similar situation. Our family has dinner with his ex-wife (the mother of his two daughters) and her current boyfriend on a weekly-ish basis and she lives in what was his house when he died. Death cures a lot of issues in these cases. It's actually probably a lot easier than when dealing with divorce, honestly.

I always liked to imagine his character from HIMYM was just his character from SLC Punk grown up. They even had an episode that showed even though he was all mild mannered and laid back, that he went batshiat crazy during fights.

I don't think that's quite the phrasing that someone should use. With all the flesh and blood, it sounds like a Clive Barker novel.

Hope he didn't mention blowing his L on some T's, or putting his P in a V. That would have been awkward.

Didn't they break up or divorce or whatever long before he died?

I'm not saying she's milking this, in fact I'm sure she's not. But I just had a memory of Cher attention-whoring it up after Sonny died even though he had a widow.

I was going to say something to the same effect, but just posted a pic instead. That scene on HIMYM when he is downstairs fighting with his brothers to that song called "Murder Train" is hilarious!

Its a little long but you will get idea after about 30 seconds

holy crap, it's probably been 10 years since i saw slc punk...i had no idea who j.s. was back then, but i've liked him in all the stuff i've seen him in the last 5 or so years. seems like a genuinely likeable guy, and (myself being the proud owner of a tattoo of ANIMAL) anyone that devoted to the muppets can't be all bad

How many times have they used Murder Train? I think 3 including the Dawson episode.

IIRC, they had called off their engagement and were living apart, but were hoping to work it out or something. Basically, their Facebook relationship status would have been set to "It's complicated."

He did the right thing. But that is what people should expect from one another.

His public persona seems alright. This is a nice story. It is not anything special.

They did, but they had the kid together. So it's still his parent's grandkid, and of course they care who might be raising it. That's still their blood relative, and to some people that's the most important thing in the world.

And Sonny and Cher still had this weird close relationship after they broke up--spoke on the phone constantly, I think she was pretty dependent on him. So her behavior after he died wasn't really that weird, in context. (cher doesn't really seem like the most stable of individuals anyway, right?)
 
2012-08-20 11:59:31 AM
There's something a little creepily specific on the whole "you can still come visit your kid" thing: something like that could easily get across tacitly. But at this point I'd say it's not anything that shouldn't just be brushed off as awkwardness in an awkward situation.

I trust the Daily Mail to have correctly captured the tone of the phone call.

I think it was more along the lines of a "Michelle and Matilda are spending a lot of time at my house in LA and you are welcome come visit her here anytime" thing.

He seems like a class act to me, good on all of them.

As others have said they had a kid and were still really close. I think she's been very classy and dignified throughout the process. Heath's family accepted the Oscar not her, and I haven't seen her try to use his name or their kid to gin up any publicity or cash. She's a good actress in her own right and also pretty dam hot, even in the shots I've seen of her without makeup.

So yeah, I'd hit it, and the fact the Jason Segel gets to do a movie with the Muppets and is now banging Michelle Williams shows that he's either a decent guy or has sold his soul for fame and fortune.

DamnYankees: Whats the normal etiquette for second spouses in this situation?


That's an interesting question. I'm getting married this December, and this will be fiancées 2nd marriage.

The interactions between the dad and myself will hopefully be rare. He had made some pretty big mistakes in their marriage, and the wife's wounds haven't fully healed yet, so while there is communication, it's very brief.

They have done a great job of keeping things civil, for the kids sake. She refuses to say anything negative about him in front of the kids.

Its nice when two adults can resolve problems like adults, and not like spoiled brats.

So in conclusion,

What was the question again?
