A good friend of mine had the bright idea of bringing up my XN. Not only did she bring him up, but she gave me great detail about the way he treats the OW. My XN of 4yrs left me for a high-school girl. He and I are in college.
It hurts and shocks me how much he is doing for the OW. Making her high school Homecoming a dream come true. Renting a fancy car, tux, purchasing her dress, making reservations to a fancy restaurant. I was lucky to even get him to go to TWO of our dances!(And no the fancy car/restaurant/dress were not included). Not to mention I got yelled at and made me cry both times because he did not want to be there.
This isnt the first time I hear about all the wonderful things he is doing for her. They've only been together 4months and he treats her as if shes stuck around for a long time and deserves all this special treatment. It makes me feel horrible. As if I wasn't worthy enough to be taken out on dates or have nice things done for me even if I did put up with all his crap.
Why is it that that they always treat the OW who hasn't put up with them much better?
