Re: Funeral Dilemma

I have an idea. It's facetious but might solve your conundrum. Go to the funeral -- wearing a red dress. That way you show up to appease H and the others, but your clothing will communicate that you're glad the SOB is dead. It will be your unspoken jab in response to all the jabs the FMs and whoever...

Re: I don't even know where to begin!

I'm so sorry you're suffering. Your H has officially checked out, it sounds like. Unfortunately, no matter what you do, you can't change him. He values others' opinions more than yours or a professional counselor's, and that's sad. I hate to say it, but I agree with Melody. When I was reading your p...

Re: My Daughter’s MIL

Hold up... she actually told you that she didn't want you there to exchange the gifts?!? Or did you heard it from a third party? If it's the latter, then I'd be offended too but there's not much you can do about it. If the MIL said to your face that she didn't want to exchange gifts with you there, ...

To the Poster of "Naughty Bride Episode One"

"Hi to my fellow tortured souls, I am back again… I mean…are we surprised? Since we last spoke, I officially married into this fucking mess of a family painting. I survived the wedding, no one set fire to the bride…so if we’re trying to be grateful, I have that to work with. If anyone’s wondering i...

Re: What to do with family photos of the evil ILs?

Maybe you could donate them to the historical society of the town they live in? That way you feel like you are preserving them for posterity but never have to look at them ever again. Somebody somewhere might find use for them sometime down the road. In 50 years, they might be worth something to som...

Re: Deep Thought

Keeper, a question - Why does he expect you to bear the burden for family bliss? As the husband, and considering it is HIS family that this involves, where does he think his responsibility lies in all of this? And why must you be the one to offer the olive branch just to be repeatedly mistreated? IM...

Re: Do I send a mother's day card and bouquet for my BH

Hi and welcome! Nope, don't send anything. If it was that important to your H, he would do it himself. Hating computers is not a valid excuse to not show his family care, courtesy, and concern. Like the others said, his mom = his responsibility. I don't know your entire situation, but I'd guess that...

Re: Overwhelmed with Life

Hi Mara, it's good to hear from you, but I wish it was better news. I agree that you shouldn't let H any unsupervised visits. He isn't in the right frame of mind to be trusted with the kids. And I do agree that you need to find out EXACTLY what you could possibly be responsible for financially even ...

a few beers shy of a six-pack.

The driveway doesn't go completely to the street.

The engine isn't firing on all cylinders.

Re: After The Cutoff

I can't stand judgemental Christians that think they are holier-than-thou because they sit at services - then act like nasty pieces of work immediately after. Then they ask you, "if you don't go to church, how will your children know right from wrong?" Well Duh! In the meantime, they are either unw...

Re: Please Help Me!

I apologize if I missed something in your post. It was quite long and hard to read on a phone. 1. MOVE OUT. If you’re old enough to get married then you are old enough to establish your own household. 2. Premarital counseling ASAP. Your fiancé needs to develop the tools to be in a mature and healthy...

Re: Extended Visits

Say no to the dogs! Hopefully, the ILs would rather not come than have to board their animals. And yes, it is rude of them to tell you when they will invade your home with all the additional riff raff. A good “that’s not a good time for us” from you would be totally appropriate. Also tell them that ...

Re: Sent it ALL back...

Why not just graciously say thank you for the gifts you didn’t have to give me and then donate them to goodwill? Please don’t complain when they get you nothing next year. Sending the gifts back just adds fuel to the fire, and gives the impression that you feel entitled to their generosity.
