    How can you speak about your mother in this way? Seriously, what do you gain from making a thread like this?

    But she has had children with 3 different men! This is clearly a disgrace...
    That is your opinion, I see nothing disgraceful in what she has done and I ask you kindly not to refer to her in such a derogatory manner

    Yes this is my point exactly. Her original boyfriend (my dad) was clearly not loved by her, as she left him for an old man. I asked my dad why she left him and he said 'Things just didn't work'. I know he's lying and that she left him because he was poor and that he couldn't give her the expensive things she desired.

    What does he being male have to do with it

    What about the countless men that leave their wives for younger women too? Who cares about them?

    I'm shocked at how many people think in the same terms as my mum. I doubt my mum would invest her time with a 67 year old man had he not been as wealthy as he was. Also, she was 25 and he was 67... That's a huge age difference! He's old enough to be her father possibly grandfather.
    I think she saw an opportunity for a better life but she left my dad for an old man. How could she have loved my dad? Clearly she is a gold digger...
    I find it strange that you seem to be more upset that she might have taken advantage of this old dude than she walked out on your dad?

    I mean really it's your dad getting shafted in all of this, the older guy got a great deal out of it.

    Personally I think you're just a troll trying to stir up anti woman sentiment.

    I know, even the OP doesn't seem bothered!

    The way I see it is he is the only one wronged in this situation :\

    Exactly. I assume you don't approve of that. Yet no one appears to be showing any concern for the guy that was left by OPs mum. All I'm saying.

    Its no more wrong than if she had left him for another poor person. The principle is Identical - she leaves because she doesn't love him for someone that can provide more happiness. Whether that be money, love or being great in bed, the outcome is the same regardless.

    It may have genuinely not been working, could be lot so things. If you care about people who can't do what your mum did then don't vote for governments that want to destroy services like the NHS that help poorer people. Basically don't be one of those richer people that closes the trap door behind them.

    I'm not particularly bothered about that either. People break up for countless reasons. My main issue on this thread is with how OP has referred to his own mother who quite clearly was putting her children's needs before her own.

    She certainly made the best choice for her child. We can not possibly fault her for that.
    That argument didn't work out so well for Jean Valjean.

    I guess it's because as a man I'm more lickly to encounter the scenario of being left for someone with more money which made me inclined to feel sorry for the young bloke.
