I’ll spare you the ugly history. Just imagine the worst possible divorce that shows the true colors of the ex-wife, takes the father to the cleaners, and causes the young daughter to be estranged from her father. The father (my husband) is now very ill. After 15 years of no contact, the daughter wants to visit. In Covid times, that’s impossible, but a phone call is likely to happen.
Some of you have experienced greedy and manipulative relatives, but this is new territory for me. I have sympathy for the daughter, but I know that anything said to her will go to the ex-wife.
My husband doesn’t speak much other than yes or no. So, all phone calls are a bit awkward. I usually end of making small talk with the caller.
What advice do you have for me? I am afraid of saying too much. Thanks.
