I don't get it. Everything you said to her seems blatantly obvious to me. Did she think this was just a phase and wasn't actually going to happen?
She's just...out of it, I guess. In her own weird little world. No wonder she didn't flip the hell out when they told her. She kept saying "I'm still not over her going off to college...and now she's getting *married*?" Uh...she moved out of your house 2+ years ago...

Good deal! Hope it's something that can be managed easily.

Yeah, I admit that the possibility of RA was in the back of my mind but seeing posts here got me kind of nervous.

I thought I was invnicible.

Fred Savage seems to have done okay, too.
They seem to have all had better support systems than many of those from earlier days.
I still say it's a proportional thing of how eft up the parents are.
Seems the screwed up ones had parents who were living through them, or who abandoned them either actually or emotionally.
(Had to google Kaley Cuoco, had no idea who she was)

I knew a guy about 20 years ago who had his doctors convinced that cocaine was teh treatment of choice for his kind of migraine headaches. His doctors bought into the theory, how and why is beyond me.

I think teh invincible drug is something else though, not coke.

I know angel dust/pcp gives people superhuman strength. It can take a team of cops to subdue someone on that.

Yeah and after he's tossed a couple of cops around and they taze him, next thing you know, his heart stops and the cops are labeled bad guys, and there is a push to remove tazers from a cops weapon choice.

Totally bogus. peeps on crack need to be treated like they on crack!

Heh, so apparently my MIL was cool with my SIL being engaged because she didn't understand what all that entailed.
Meaning she didn't understand that it means marriage is imminent?

Awkward, I guess? She wasn't sobbing, just tears.

Yeah. I think she thought it was "Oh, we're engaged, but we're not getting married until we're 30." And I guarantee they told her all that stuff initially, she was just...coming up with her own answers to her questions in her head or something.

There is a lot to be said for delaying your first child until the girl is 22. Emotional maturity, education, ability to get and keep a job, run a household.

Your SIL will be 19 or 20 when she gets married? From a church based school, an early pregnacy will not be frowned on from a married couple.

Do you see any improvement in her organizational or housekeeping skills?
