PsiChick: "While I hadn't seen him for five years, that had beenhis choice, not mine. I can't live my life blaming myself and wondering if things would've been different if I'd stayed. What's done is done and I can't change that."

His choice?  HIS? You  moved the fark out, you asswipe, and wanted him to come crawling back instead of growing up and parenting! Every second of his hell was probably of your making.

I seriously hope there's no limit on child-abuse statutes in the UK.

She won't have a leg to stand on.

orbister: No mention of a father anywhere, I see, though something about him is pretty clear.

The kids never went back?

It sounds like they cut her off before the amputation.

Her kids need to understand that she was there for a good part of their childhood and did for them as she could.

They should offer to take care of her. Say, for instance, she needed a ride to the hospital. They should go and pick her up and take her about 70% of the way there and then throw her out of the car. That's fair.

The one son who hanged himself at age 20 has a pretty good excuse for not being there.

PapaChester: acad1228: Sounds like the bastards needed abandoning.

Then you wait and do it a 18. At 16 they are stupid as shiat and cannot do anything themselves.

This mother deserves the old speeding bus into the pelvis routine.

Isn't that how that whole mess got started?

Mattyb710: I'm not seeing the problem. If she had waited 2 years before leaving everyone would agree with her choice, but since the boys were 16 it's all her fault. Our obsession with arbitrary numbers is baffling.

You sound all under age molesty.

Hmmm.  It appears as though "One reaps what one sows".  I must look further into that concept.

huntertom: Ah! Another happy love-related editorial from "love it! magazine".. wtf.

From looking at the cover of that mag included in the article, "Love It!" seems to specialize in schadenfreude.

Other headlines on the cover include "Too fat to marry. Words that made this big bride cry." and "A new kidney and a new Mistress! 'Organ transplant turned my man into a cheat'"

JonZoidberg: What a chav.  Chav is what you limeys call white trash, right?

IMHO, the kids were being little shiats but they were 16 and she needed to step up and be an grownup.  Amazing that she sees herself as blameless.

She did the grown up thing. She said "Ok, you are technically adults, so if you won't listen to me, you're on your own. Here's where I am if you need me." It's not very impressive that things got to that state, but given that they had, her action was reasonable.

It's my experience with dead beat parents (like my own father) that once they forgive themselves for their selfish and hurtful actions, they just expect everyone else to do the same. They no longer blame themselves, so why should anyone else? All the sudden your the bad guy for refusing to forgive YEARS of abuse and neglect after one tearful apology. This woman sounds like a worthless piece of shiat mom and I hope her kids never speak to her again.
