That's ok. All estranged parents can do is learn to accept that you cannot change the behaviour of others, even adult children, and adapt to a different life (to how you thought it would be).
We're lucky, as we have a full life, and have never "lived just through the children". There's always some drama going on with all the others to keep us awake lol 😬
Our GCs, his and mine, are adult now, so any decisions they make are theirs.
I have got incredibly angry about DH's kids - his health isn't good, and I could well do without sulking, stroppy ACs adding to the fray 🙄. I don't know what motivates them, and I'm past caring now.
But, it is what is, and life goes on really.
Hope you and DH find contentment, regardless of what others are doing.😉
