My husband of four years, in the early 70s, walked out when our daughter was nine months. He visited a handful of times and then when she was four, I moved countries with her, although I did invite him to visit.
When she was about twenty she tried to get into contact with her father through her grandfather, with whom we were always on good terms. Her grandfather told her that her father had said he didn’t want contact, it was another time, another life. He had two other daughters.
His/our granddaughters a few years ago asked about him but I couldn’t say much. (They are fluent English speakers) I wrote to him giving him a positive update on his family enclosing a photo but of course there was no reply.
With Covid all around life is short. If your husband (you had nothing to do with the divorce) had had a baby before you met wouldn’t you try to encourage a relationship?
