    overheard comments from DB's Dad

    Advertisements
    When I first met my DB's parents, things were a little tense. It was clear that they had some concerns, I assume because he had been divorced not long before we started dating. I had known him as a friend though for years before we started dating. If his Dad is displeased about something or someone he's pretty open about it, but not so much the other way around. I had the feeling that he's a little more accepting of me now than before, but he's never come out and said anything to let me know exactly how he feels.

    The day before Easter, I was helping DB's sister with preparing for a move, and when I was walking through a hallway that led to a garage I overheard DB's Dad talking to a guy that was there to help with the move also. I stopped right before I entered the garage because I heard them talking about me. The guy said, "I know she doesn't look like his ex, but is she, you know, similar to her or anything?" DB's Dad said, "Oh hell no. They're as different as night and day." He would mention something negative about her and then say something positive about me. He then ended my saying "In fact, she's the one he should've married the first time around."

    The guy said, "He's not the only one to make a mistake like that." DB's Dad said, "Yeah, well, he chose wisely this time." It was very heartwarming to know DB's Dad feels this way, even if he couldn't tell me to my face.
