He Is Dying of Cancer and His Family Thinks that His Ex-Wife Should Look After Her but She Doesn’t Want To

A woman finds herself in a difficult situation as her ex-husband receives a cancer diagnosis. Despite having a good relationship with him, she is unsure whether it is her responsibility to care for him throughout his illness.

They had a great life

The woman and her ex-husband used to have a great marriage – good jobs, two kids, and plenty of love.

But then he got sick

That all changed when he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. They went through years of painful treatments and recovery together, even moving to a smaller house near the research center where he was getting treated.

They split up

In the divorce, the man gave her the house and took care of all of his medical debt.

Fast forward to now, they’ve been divorced for a year, and his cancer has come back. He needs treatment again at the same research hospital and wants to stay at her house during his treatment.

His parents expect her to house him and look after him because, as they say, “he was generous in letting [her] have the house without taking his rightful share from the equity.”

His treatment was difficult

When he was previously getting treatment, it was physically draining and very expensive. The couple had to downgrade their lifestyle significantly, and the man became very depressed. Whenever he felt better, he would stay in his hometown to escape it all.

The woman didn’t object to this because she knew it was good for his mental health, but she was left managing the kids, the entire household, and her full-time job all on her own.

He was cheating on her

Turns out, while he was in his hometown, he reconnected with his high school girlfriend and eventually confessed to her that he was sleeping with her. That’s when the woman filed for divorce.

Her in-laws think she owes him

Her husband had fully recovered from his cancer by then, and giving her the house and taking all the debt was like his way of apologizing. Now his parents think the woman owes him and should let him stay at the house for the 2-3 months his treatment is at the facility.

She’s unhappy about what happened before

The woman wants him to be well and doesn’t want her kids to lose their loving father, but it would be a lot of work for her, especially if she becomes his nurse and caretaker again. She’s still really bitter about how their marriage ended.

People think she should help

Many people close to her are telling her that she should support him for the sake of her kids. But she’s wondering if she would be the bad guy if she said she couldn’t do that.

She reached out for help

One user said, “NTA. Let his girlfriend take care of him.”

Another said, “If he went back to his small hometown, I assume his parents were living there. The chances of his parents being unaware that their son was sleeping with his high school girlfriend when he came home is zero, zip, zilch, nada. They also betrayed you. You owe none of them anything.”
