I just spent over an hour in the store looking for a fathers day card and a birthday card for what might be my FWH (He lied and cheated for at least 7 years with the same OW). Do they make cards for cheaters? All of them say how great they have been and how loving they have been for the entire relationship. That doesn't work for me. I am still here and we are going to MC but I still haven't made up my mind about staying or going. My kids are grown and we are taking him out for combination fathers day birthday and annv all fall within the same week. I cant bring myself to buy cards that are not true but the kids will note if I dont do something. any advice?

If your kids are grown then they should be able to handle the truth that you're conflicted right now about a sentimental card, so are opting out of any card at all this year in the interest of honesty, integrity and authenticity.

Him = EX-d out (abusive troglodyte NPD SA)

HAHAHA, cards for cheaters.
Love you sense of humor.
Right? I don't want to get FWH anything from ME. Maybe a card from the kids with writing and handprints.
Same here. Eff him this year. If it's not genuine, I'm not doing it.

How about giving him a simple gift instead of a card. For example, a bottle of his favorite wine with a small card that just says: Happy Fathers Day, Love spldbrt614

I think I'm going with a blank card. ODS can sign it himself, and I'll sign for the baby. I'll encourage ODS to draw a large picture so that there's no space for my signature. Lol

Him: WH (31)

My ds7 found the perfect card, it has a chimp picking his nose and the inside says "I picked this card out just for you, happy Father's Day"
"For a minute there I lost myself"

WH's birthday and Fathers day are a few days apart, last year i sent him a text wishing him HB and HFD, kids didnt get him a card for either occasion, he was with OW and got a homemade card from her son
This year, considering I didnt get a Happy Mothers day, and birthday wishes were a day late, I dont plan on doing anything to acknowledge those days, let OW take care of it, he is with her after all
Not wasting my time with someone who chooses to be with OW, instead of us. Plus this is my son's first official Fathers day and my parents are here for a visit too. Gonna be a great time for all of us
Someone needs to come up with cards for us and our situation, the money they could make!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got one of the sappiest, mushiest cards ever.

I don't need you to be happy. I just need you to leave me alone when I am.
