I think Red Cross confines itself to asking for donations to Red Cross pertinent to a specific disaster. We have some of the commercials on the radio.

BTW Given my parents situation, I have increasing respect for what you have done for your grandparents.

So she lied in order to get married.
And he'll stay married, most likely, out of stubbornness, since at least two of his brothers talked to him about this relationship not seeming to be a healthy, good fit.
Part of me thinks it's what he deserves for dating like an idiot. The other part of me wants him to get an annulment based on fraud, and leave her all alone in her idiocy.
Oh, Dillian. You so crazy.

Seriously, though, that is effed up.

Misrepresenting willingness to have children is grounds for an annulment.Catholics: I think this will support a religious annulment, too?

That is one of the big reasons for an annulment. Part of the vows are agreeing to have children and raising them in the Catholic faith.

I don't understand people who rush into life changing decisions without thinking them through. Who wants to bet that J will change her mind as soon as she holds her friend's sleeping baby next week or sees a friend's adorable 6 year old dressed up in her new Christmas clothes?

Ugh.

I don't think so -- she seems very uncomfortable and awkward around kids, and she was holding someone's baby last year and it spit up on her, and she CRIED.

AT the wedding shower D's family threw for the couple, one of D's sisters-in-law made a rather harsh comment to J (J had been complaining that the toddler didn't want anything to do with her, the kid's mom said "Well, you guys never come to any family gatherings, so the kid doesn't know you"). What did J do? Did she go to the bathroom to cry and compose herselr? No. She walked outside, crying, and stood out on the sidewalk -- in view of everyone in the house and in the 'hood -- and bawled like a baby.

So she's hypersensitive AND a drama queen who loves attention.

Wow, she's nutso. Like Matilda said, I know *I'm* not maternal by any stretch, but geez... babies spit up. It's what they do. I cannot under any circumstances imagine crying over that.

That just sounds immature. I wasn't comfortable around kids, either, until I had my own. Not that I am suggesting she should have kids when she is not sure about it - far from it. Just that everything you have said about her over all of the past posts points to immaturity, not conviction.

Maturity has nothing to do with chronological age.

Oh, immaturity all over the place! She also has cried when someone dropped an F bomb in front of her. She's intolerable.

However: To lie about wanting kids is a HORRID thing to do to someone else. That's a crazy degree of narcissism or self-absorption. "I want what I want so I'm going to lie about this really big thing in order to get it."

No, that is horrid. I put it up there with women who lie about being on birth control and get pregnant to *save* a relationship. Only in D's situation, he has a way out.

You're right about that. She's way more sensitive to that kind of stuff. My mom thinks the kids should just buck up and deal.

I decided this might be the last vacation we do together with them. She always makes me feel like I'm still 12 years old.
