Quoting LolaMcKitten:" Oh, I totally agree - the whole situation is stupid. Daddy needs to help his daughter get on her feet ... [snip!] ... get on her feet she she's actually stable instead of keep giving handouts and little trophy wife needs to get over herself. "
I think the thing I find most irritating is that she's bitching about the daughter and not even considering there's two children, almost 3 involved in it also. Yeah, a 25 year old should have her smurf together a little more(which is a when lot easier when you marry someone who's already established OP) but things happen. You want to punish the adult but that also punishes two kids that had no choice in the decision making process. And she's not even bitching about something substantial. I could get it more if some of their bills were going unpaid over this but Christmas decorations and a present for herself? Really?
It's like she married him thinking it's just going to be their sweet little family and that his other kids don't count anymore because their adults. She doesn't understand that no matter how old they get you still look at them and see a newborn in your arms or teaching her to ride a bike when she was 6 and kissing boo boo's when she fell down. They get older but they never stop being your baby.
I'm nearly 30 years old and my grandparents who raised me still get dreamy eyed when they look at me sometimes remembering some happy memory from my childhood. They've bailed my mother out of countless bad situations her whole life and I used to get SO pissed when I was a teenager. I'd always ask my grandma when she was just going to give up and she'd just get sad and tell me she couldn't. I never understood it until I had my oldest. She could end up being the biggest strung out druggie loser in the world and I'd still help her, I'd be less gracious than my grandparent were, LOL, but I wouldn't stop trying to help especially if my grandkids were involved.
I know the discussion is over but I don't get on as much so I'm behind. I still like to throw in my ranty 2 cents in though, LOL
