I want to add, it's also super unfair to the children. My own father, who is 75, dumped my mother and is now together with a 55 year old.
So with that, he dumped the old wife on my brother and me. She was a housewife for most of her life and is somewhat dependent on help, maybe also experiencing some mild cognitive loss. After cleaning up after him for 50 years, she can now go "suit herself"; now that there would maybe be something for him to do for her, nah, he's out the door and got himself someone new for service and entertainment.
