Anyways it’s not their money they’re using but my husband’s so they din’t feel how painful it is to see your hard earned money being thrown away for nothing.
And they pawned their jewelries back home and my husband is the one who paid for it to get it back.
He sees it as his duty to help them, whether she likes it or not.
In his view, they are a part of the package and she should understand that. This money that he gives them is in the thousands of dollars annually, from what I understand. Reply Omg @tired I’m in the exact same shoe as you my mother inlaw is a single mum and she’s financially stable, she gets enough from the government to pay all her bills and mortgage and some money on the side plus she works as well so she totally doesn’t need any help, now I’m not against him helping her if she was struggling at all but she’s clearly not as she can afford to get Botox done every 4 months or so !
She finds it hard to imagine parents taking money from adult kids, much less expecting to receive it. They don’t appear wealthy, but they don’t appear to truly be struggling either. Her viewpoint is that income that a couple earns is for them to support themselves and their own children.
His viewpoint, on the other hand, is that since he works hard for his money, he should be able to give money to his parents if he wants to.
His sister would say they don’t have money to buy food and when he gave them that huge amount they practice the one day millionaire attitude and just wasted the entire money that is still unaccountable how they spent it and still act that they don’t have enough when his sister keeps on posting on olaces she went, on restaurants she ate and so on.
And to top it all they would also request things from him to buy for them.
Reply Jeez I hope this couple can weather this storm.
It seems like the husband has know about this obligation his whole life so he really should have let her in so they could have compromised before the situation arose.
In my culture children are not usually expected to take care of parents so if mine sprung that on me I wouldn’t be happy.
He was instilled way before to be the source of money for them.
What’s worse is that it is not his parents who is deoendent on him but his sister’s entire family.
