  • bubblylove said: I said "and family" and there were no problems. Not sure what's confusing about that.  Because some people think it means they can bring their mom too. Also because the children have names and I think they deserve …
  • hmphaseisover said: How do you forgive something like this? How do you move forward? What does moving forward look like? How do you move forward and not look like an idiot? I don't think "looking like an idiot" or not should be your prim…
  • banana468 said: hmphaseisover said: NEW INFORMATION:  1. He touched her boobs 2. He spanked her twice 3. His phone was the one to contact her. 4. She wrote her name on his chest in permanent marker.  Information confessed by DH.  To…
  • charlotte989875 said: People get to live their lives the way they want. And it sounds like LW and their partner understand the ramifications of their choices.  The niece doesn't get to make the choice for the LW, but LW should probably be prep…
  • eileenrob said: climbingwife said: I can understand where LW is coming from. I was really hurting after my grandmother died, but I felt guilty being so upset when my H had just lost his dad. You start to think that your grief isn't as …
  • TRIED TO LIGHT THEIR MOTHER ON FIRE "Brother, we love you, and I'm happy to go out to dinner for your birthday or something some other time, but it should be entirely obvious why we won't be going to any more parties your MIL attends."
  • I think a number of the fair trade sites have registry options.
  • I agree, that this particular instance your plans are fine. No one's saying they frown upon interfaith marriages, or upon figuring out how to include two faiths in your ceremony when you are of two faiths. You just have to be careful including…
  • knottie00fe2f54982b4d5d said: I have seen the movie many times. Thankfully there is more tolerance than in that movie. That said, a rehearsal dinner and a cook out to have the parents meet are two separate things.  I don't see there being a "w…
  • knottie00fe2f54982b4d5d said: Hi all. I am back unfortunately. Thankfully my fiance is still on the same page with setting boundaries but at one point even he had to leave the room because the discussion was driving him nuts. My FMIL and FFIL …
  • knottiecb89f3aae5e7cf5e said: Hey everyone - my FSIL is my MOH and she and FMIL are insisting that for getting ready before the wedding that we need to invite my FH’s grandmother, godmother, and a friend of FMIL along as well. I’ve nevet met an…
  • "You made your choices, which are great for you and I support them, and I am making mine. If you don't have anything good to say about my wedding, that's fine - we don't have to talk about the subject. In fact, I will change the subject or hang up i…
  • There's definitely a divide within the endocrinological community about whether the puberty blockers are worth stunting the normal non-sexual body growth functions (bone density, etc) that the puberty hormones aid with. Ergo, any pediatric endo who…
  • short+sassy said: climbingwife said: Ugh, I can see both sides of this. Yes, the step-daughter didn't send a picture. But then to not include her seems harsh. Surely she could have found a picture somewhere of this girl, yes?  I c…
  • banana468 said: Is this serious?   Has he lied to you before?  Did he have control over this?  Did you try to exert control over the bachelor party?  Was this lie an effort to spare feelings, cover up his choices or both? If this is one isol…
  • flantastic said: knottie90bffab0011e4439 said: I am trying to decide how to include all 6 nieces in our wedding. We have one matron of honor and 3 bridesmaids with one best man and 3 groomsmen. The 6 nieces will be 3, 6, 6, 7, 9 and 11…

  • My 3yo makes things about my life that don't need to be unpleasant into something unpleasant. I mean, sure, we discipline her for acting up, but also some of it is toddler psychology. She thinks it's hilarious when she does something against the rul…
  • My block ends in a cul-de-sac, or would if the cul-de-sac weren't actually the circle drive of the rear entrance of an elementary school. Our street is "permit parking only" so that when there are school events, the residents and their guests can ac…
  • knottie2aa758ec26ebb092 said: Sooooooo, my Fiance and his buddy were childhood friends and after they graduated highschool they have drifted apart, but still talk every few months (maybe see each other 2 times per year). When they were in 6th g…
  • CharmedPam said: Re: paying for parking.  This is funny because if you ever went to the Iowa state fair (and its really something you gotta do) locals make SO much money selling their spots during that time.  Some even ruin their lawn and have …

  • I feel bad for your former MOH. Just because she doesn't have the financial wherewithal to pay for (even half) a trip to a foreign country, you think this is a one-sided friendship? Spending money to travel internationally is not anywhere close to …
  • Aside from their marital issues - I don't get people who want a new ring unless they're very obviously in a new, distinct stage of their marriage. Then it can be a symbol of that, fine. Mostly, though, it sounds to me like "This ring you got me bac…
  • knottie0c32ee73ab40fdcb said: We got engaged at the first weekend in April. I had always known I wanted a spring wedding, so we planned for May 2020. We checked out a few venues and chose a beautiful farm with a historic greenhouse for the cere…
  • knottie73628 said: Well considering all bridesmaids and bride agreed on a set deadline since everyone is from out of town and were totally ok with it, I don't understand why it is my fault. All other BM did their duty and ordered the dress wayy…

  • knottie73628 said: Why care so much? You are a grown adult, worry about your own life. We are going to do what we want anyways. But there are other forums I am on where people are much kinder and even if they don't agree, they do not resort to …

  • knottie73628 said: Once again I'll tell you, she chose to leave after we brought it up to her that we were thinking about asking her to leave if she doesn't want to be a part of it and be involved. She knew the exact prices and knew exactly wha…

  • knottie73628 said: That is not a fair response at all, the bride has been nothing but helpful and overly kind to the BM, she has offered to help cover costs, and she has even given her months and months to order her dress and pay her back for t…
