I have a friend. For 15 years he has been married to a woman. She has a son from her first marriage, no children together. Her son got married this weekend. A friend of mine a week before the wedding, on this occasion, took time off from work, helped with the organization of the wedding, traveled, negotiated, settled, helped with money.
I meet him today, I ask how it went.
– I have no idea, I was not invited …
– the stepson said that I was nobody to him.
