No, you don't have to spend time around your daughter's affair-partner. Just stay close to HER. She may be in a swinging-door mentality and this new guy may be gone soon. Love her, and wait. Forgiving someone does NOT mean they have to become a part of your life.
i didnt notice if they had children. i would presume if she was 29 yrs old that she might have. the way she did what she did was so evil and unsuspecting by both her parents and her husband. i would have shamed her if she were my daughter. if i had to forgive her then it would take a long long time. she sinned and knew what she was doing. she chose to do it. she more than likely planned it. if i were the dad i would still be in contact with the ex son in law and let him know how this hurt him as well. they were all a family once. divorcing like that gets my blood boiling. i know there i a God and only He can judge but the father in this case was hurt by this. and he has a right to his own feelings. and can say how he feels about it to her.
It seems this father easily excuses his daughter......
She is as guilty as the guy she did the adultery with!
this is a truly difficult and heart breaking situation for the father. i have never been placed in this sort of situation. each person has to make - as you say - their own path thru this process, independent of the path others in the situation choose to do - easier said than done,and as you and the prophets have told us, this can only be healed and softened by the Atonement of Jesus Christ. that said - i know this is possible, my sister in law has been divorced 2x, and she has been blessed to be able to remain good friends with her former spouses and their families - perhaps pretty unique in todays world, but she has been able to do this. you get to field some pretty tough problems, and i appreciate your keeping the answers provided by the Restored Gospel at the top of the list for answering questions. keep up the good work.
Forgiving the daughter while being angry with the man she slept with is a double standard. She is equally guilty; you should be as angry at her as with the man. Or as forgiving. I think it would be a long time before I let either one of them in my house, and when I did it would be when I could let both of them in.
