I love my son and everything, but I have to say that he has made some very foolish decisions in his life.
Probably the best thing that happened to him was meeting the lovely young lady who he chose to marry.
The sad thing is that he entirely ruined his marriage. This young lady was really nice and we were so happy to welcome her into our family. The thing is that our son drove her crazy over the years. She would always encourage him to take care of things around the house like the HVAC maintenance and repairs. She would tell him that she didn’t want to have to pay for costly energy bills if the HVAC wasn’t working at full capacity. She would also remind him to change the air filters regularly, and really she shouldn’t have had to do all of that. He should have known to do those things. It turned out that he kept telling her that he would take care of things like that and he would tell her that those things were already done. He kept telling her the air filter was already changed for example, and eventually the air quality would become horrible in the house and she would check the air filter herself. When she saw the nasty air filter, she became fed up with our son for lying to her. She figured if he would lie about things like that, who knew what else he might be lying about. She actually suspected he was cheating on her too, but she wasn’t able to prove it. Eventually they were not able to work things out, and they got a divorce. It was the saddest thing, but our son didn’t even seem to care. I think he made the biggest mistake of his life.
