When I met my husband, he was in the initial stages of his divorce. Fourteen years later we are happily married. He had two daughters with his ex-wife, and once the divorce was final my husband’s ex-wife tried to minimize his contact with them. We had to hire lawyers to make sure that my husband was able to visit his daughters. But now that my husband’s daughters are well into their teens, we rarely see them. They are busy with their friends and work on the weekends and rarely answer my husband’s texts and calls. We tried to be good parents, and I always made sure the girls had quality time with just their dad. We had plenty of good times while they were younger, which makes their current “rejection” of their dad so hurtful to him. How do I help him? I want to encourage him to keep the lines of communication open with his daughters, but it seems to keep him open to more pain. Is this the right thing to do?
