Our expert says:
Sounds like a grossly selfish and over-indulged "wife" who seems to have had no concept of the duties of being a spouse. Your son has indeed been very badly treated by her, and deserives some proper personal counselling or therapy to help him cope and tobecome stronger and wiser from these unpleasant experiences.
I very much doubt that the ex wife suffers from any mental illness --- maybe an immature and somewhat psychopathic / antisocial personality disorder, but that would be beyond treatment, anyway.
I agree with Jason. Though this is a sad time for him, your son will be better off without this person in his life. He needs to be cautious to defend himself properly through his lawyer in the divorce, and to give her as little as possible,, as she is likely only to waste whatever she receives --- indeed, having to earn enough to support her wasteful and selfish way of life might help her to wake up to the actual realities of life.
