It doesn't necessarily end even when your kids are adults.
Last summer, longtime friends of mine had a party to show off all their recent home renovations. And my DS #1 and his fiancee showed up briefly to announce their engagement (I knew ahead of time) and to show off the wedding ring. And - another longtime "friend" quizzed me as to whether they'd been living together beforehand - "yes". "And that's all right with you?" "Yes, of course it's fine". "Oh, well.." from her.
This was after just about the worst year of my life - I'd received my pink slip from my job only a few weeks after my husband had died. (She knew all this). This is one of the more joyous moments I'd had in a long time, and she chose this time to promote her extreme-conservative agenda?? In the end it does not really matter, we're not inviting them to the wedding..
(Evil kareng figures that pseudo-friend's own son, the teenage Prince who is a master scholar, athlete and philospher, probably has no idea that Mom was previously married and divorced very quickly. I'd be so tempted to casually drop it into the conversation if I was every alone with him, which wouldn't happen, and which I really would not do anyway. But let me have my fantasies...)
