There's another woman who was married, separated from her DH, got pregnant by new boyfriend while still married, and has asked for opinions on how to "make" her mom accept the new FI. The group on that board told her straight up what they thought, now she's a bit defensive. Maybe it's not an epidemic. Maybe it's a Pandemic.
