Holy crap I finally got published! A little back ground, we knew that mom and her now husband had gotten a marriage license almost 2 months ago but had never gotten it signed (therefor not legally married). We had talked about it the week before and she had told me she didn't think she'd go through with it because he is an alcoholic (like her), abusive, and irresponsible. We were shocked and more then a little upset that she had gone through with it, and that she hadn't told anyone about it, b

Op, if you haven't already, I might suggest Alanon or ACA (adult children of alcoholics). It sounds like you could use some sanity regarding your mother and her husband.

Thank you jenjen, I have considered this. One of my sister in laws is a councilor and has helped me with a few things but I know that in the future I may need more help. I've got a fantastic husband of my own, and loving and supportive friends who make my life awesome so that helps to. This definitely made my Christmas less awesome this year though.

They some things should never be shared, but this isn't one of them. Don't know why your mother wouldn't share this with her children, unless she was drunk and it happened in Vegas, seems like a very hard secret to keep.

Wow! Sorry to hear about this OP. My comment previous comment might hit close to home and I apologize if it offends you. I just thought that it might be the only reasonable explanation of why they would get hitched without your knowledge. I hope your mom can recover from her addiction and you all can find a way to be a family again!

Honestly, FYL. Your mom shouldn't have gone through with it, certainly not while having you and your family believe she wouldn't. Not to say it's not her life, and she can live it how she wants...but it generally sounds like this was a big bad decision on her part, and it will affect you. Sorry. Also, I hope she shapes up and makes amends, in the best interests of everyone.
