I watched a couple of films about Chopin and each of them told a different story. Was it because of Sand's children or Sand herself?

I'm not quite sure. Some say that Sand is tired of the sick Chopin and wants to get rid of him. Others say that Sand's daughter Maurice is envious of Sand's love for Chopin.

Does anyone have other thoughts?

I read a biography and I think it was both, actually. Chopin was a very submissive person, and I think Sand just had enough of being a mother figure. I also think that the daughter had a bit to do with it.

You're absolutely right! I think that the feud kicked into high gear when Chopin wasn't invited to Maurice's (George's son) wedding. George also thought that Chopin was in love with Solange (her daughter), who she despised. Although they both had something to do with the break-up, I still like to think that it was more of George's fault since she was much more aggressive.
