A lot of shit has happened since my last update. Firstly, I wanted to thank all the well-wishers on my previous posts. Writing these posts has helped me process the stuff that’s happening, so I’m making another one.
My mom’s attorney, the one recommended by my mom’s gym friend Lisa, has been a great help. She walked my mom through what’s going to happen and reassured her. She started looking through the company stuff in preparation for the divorce proceedings and we found a lot of shocking stuff.
I don’t know why I was surprised by this, but my dad was having affairs for a long time. He used company resources to book flights and resorts at holiday destinations. There were receipts for many trips with multiple women, spanning the last 10 years. Because he was always absent from our lives, my mom didn’t suspect anything. It didn’t seem like he made any effort to hide these.
He also used the company email to talk to his secretary about the affair stuff. Turns out, they were fucking months before my dad asked my mom for an open relationship.
This is what we gathered from their emails – after months of their affair, the secretary didn’t want to remain a mistress. So, she started pestering my dad to get a divorce. But they wanted my mom to initiate it so that he could get a massive chunk of the company. The secretary came up with the idea of asking my mom for the open relationship.
They hoped that my mom would be horrified and ask for a divorce. They were caught off guard when my mom agreed. My dad got jealous when my mom started having sex.
After initiating the divorce, he deleted all his emails and told his secretary to do it too. Unfortunately for him, they were still stored the company email server.
I haven’t seen my dad in over a month. All of his communication has been through his attorney. He apparently wants half the company. My mom’s attorneys are still looking for more evidence, but they told us that they don’t expect him to get much with the evidence they have.
Lisa has been supporting my mom through the whole ordeal. She also got a divorce because her husband cheated on her, so she’s been helping my mom a lot.
