Re: I have made a terrible mistake

This is a no-brainer. Don't go. Don't pretend to be ill. Just say no. The first time is hard but it gets easier with use. That 'no muscle' just needs developing- and what better time than when it's to get out of something really horrible? Don't argue with your husband, and don't negotiate. Just "No...

Re: NieceIL and DH text

Thank you Ruby. Do you think it was her parents’ influence? Oh for certain, yes. SIL has a lot of control over her DD. NIL has been taught that her family is exceptional and every outsider is wrong. You know, all of that typical narcissistic brainwashing mumbo jumbo. NIL is under the spell and doesn...

NieceIL and DH text

So the other day DH asks me to check something on his phone and lo and behold, there were texts between NieceIL and DH. I was under the impression that the text conversation had ended in November when NIL, out of the blue, asked DH and I to dinner (some of you may remember my last post about it. NIL...

Re: Should I be bothered?

I think your feelings are justified but I'm wondering if these two friends have any clue about how they're making you feel. They probably don't realize that their friendship and behavior are having an impact on you. Sometimes people can be clueless like that. So I don't think you should hold it agai...

Re: The Abuser is My SIL...

Oh there's no doubt that this poor child is trapped in a highly abusive environment. PMILIHP is right, your hands are tied here. I know it's extremely frustrating but the only ones who have any control in this situation would be CPS and they'll likely not do anything as long as she's being fed and t...

Re: My Daughter’s MIL

This makes me wonder if your DD's ILs are dealing with a financial issue? Maybe they don't wish to speak on it? Have you ever gotten a vibe from the MIL that she dislikes you or your family? Maybe I am the strange one but I wouldn't want to have my FOO and DH FOO celebrating Christmas together. Soun...

Re: To the Poster of "Naughty Bride Episode One"

You were naïve enough to think that marrying into this situation would change anything for the better I think this is exactly what happened. I think it happens to most people though. They somehow think things will change after the marriage and when it doesn't, they are sorely disappointed and reali...

Re: Advice

Welcome to the forum Bianca :) Your DH sounds like a nice and loyal guy. And on the downside, he's nice and loyal to his paaaaaaaarents to the fault that selfish MIL and probably FIL (an enabler? Mine is!) has been able to train him. I relate, and have managed to make things better, but it took year...

Re: Odd Neighbor Advice

Unfortunately, I don't see her moving anytime soon. (Our neighbors, were finally ousted after not paying taxes for 20+ years).
They never leave do they? Every single nightmare neighbor I've had remained there for 10+ years. These psycho types hate moving! It's terrible.

Re: Odd Neighbor Advice

Ugh, I'm all too familiar with shitty neighbors. I live in a big city so terrible neighbors is the norm. You can't escape them no matter how often you try. I don't think I know anyone who lives out here who isn't dealing with a nightmare neighbor. I recently moved and I have a real loony next door. ...

Re: To RSVP or to NOT RSVP *Updatex2

Yes, I probably should have consulted with my husband BEFORE sending back the RSVP--but in my eyes, him and I have had this convo 100 times, and we are just going in circles. I did what I thought was best, and have no regrets. I agree with you and totally support what you did. Is it seen as "rude"?...

Re: To RSVP or to NOT RSVP *Update

I agree with the others, send your regrets and don't go. Happy belated to your LO :) I'd prefer to just cut them off entirely..but I do try to take my husbands feelings on it into consideration. Stop taking your husband's feelings into consideration when he doesn't do the same for you. What you give...

Re: To the Poster of "Mommy Wife"

I would leave the blow job cream out on the table. MIL would have a good night's sleep after seeing that :twisted: next time if she’s over, I would put a shiza ton of Old Folks Home brochures and “A Place For Mom” application on my nightstand. Get her outa there, or have her think you’re looking to ...

Re: She's getting older but less even mature

She's played games like sending me a month late birthday card with my name completely butchered (even though she's able to spell her niece with the same name without an issue). Is there anyway to read into this other than, "Happy Valentine's Day to EVERYONE except Melody? I know SHE'S the reason I ...
