As I'm making dinner, I hear my man asking his mother on the phone, What about my father? Have you heard from him? His parents were divorced 40 years ago, yet he relies on his mother for news of his father. His father never calls. He only cares about his son from his second marriage. He cares nothing for the surviving four children of his first marriage, or the daughter of his second. In fact, he seems to care little about his second wife. His first wife thinks she's had a lucky escape. I don't know what my man thinks.
