Man Still Mows Wife’s Lawn Nearly 30 Years After Their Divorce

This woman must have hired an incredible lawyer

Nearly 30 years after her divorce, her ex-husband still mows her lawn. But that’s not the case according to Codie LaChelle McPhate. It’s because her mom has bad knees and her step-dad is out of town a lot, so her father will visit and take care of chores around the home. Posting several photos of dad pushing the lawn mower to Facebook, McPhate writes, “This is my dad, mowing my mom’s lawn. They’ve been divorced 28 years. When my younger siblings questioned ‘Why is your dad mowing moms lawn?’ I told them ‘Because, She needed help, and he knew she couldn’t get out here to do it, so he did.'”

McPhate admits she’s “lucky” to have learned some great lessons from her family about respect and “showing your children (Even ones that are 32 years old) how to treat people.”
