See? Matilda's SIL and boyfriend don't REALLY want to get married. If quitting/losing your summer job is preferable to working and saving money for a wedding, then your bluff has been called.
Someone needs to tell her it's okay to have sex without marring the guy.
I think it should be me.
Sorry if I'm splitting hairs but this is just bugging me.

Do you only equate the word "want" to someone who is actively pursuing what that want is?

If a fat person is not working out and eating right, does it mean they don't want to be thin?

If a blind man is not actively involved in vision research, does that mean he does not want to see?

I don't equate a lack of action to a lack of want.

I WANT to be a millionaire. I likely never will be. But if someone offered me million bucks, I'd take it. If someone stepped forward and offered to pay for their wedding, do you think they'd accept the offer? If the answer is yes, then I can't see how you say they don't really want to get married.

Tell me about it. And, yes, she does. But for now, I don't think she sees that she's the problem, and that's kind of the issue. I'm fine with her staying with us as long as she's working/looking for work, or in school, but if she decides to not make progress in life, she can go back with her parents.
It's really hard to be like "F you, get out." because of what we'd be sending her back to.
And I b1tch a lot on here, and it's frustrating, but she's made a lot of positive steps since we took her in 2.5 years ago.
So you've watched her progression over 2 1/2 years. Do you think she's still making progress or do you think she's hit a wall(and if so, when was it), and do you think she will ever be able to recognize her role in her interpersonal relationship problems?

my understanding (which goes back 8 years or so), is that you can move numbers around within teh same type of phone= house, contracted cell, or pre-paid/pay-as-you-go cell - but you can't take a number from home to cell, pre-paid to contract, etc. But, it's been 8 years since i've worked selling cell phones (but not by the sea shore), so i don't knwo if the laws have changed.
Hell, i'm almost at thepoint of askign hubby to take them on our plan just to get her to STFU. my dad doesn't care, as long as he can call and the equipment works and keypad locks, he's all good.
It changed years ago.

I'm agreeing with Tonka. Just because someone WANTS to get married, doesn't mean they should run down to the local court house (as that's not everyone's ideal wedding.) Just because they WANT to get married, doesn't mean they should be pinching every dime from their minimum wage job.(Even THAT is hard to do, I've been working for 20 plus years and even *I* don't have thousands stashed away for a decent wedding.) I disagree with Angela's notion that just because they can't seem to hold down a camp counselor job and haven't run off to Vegas or the downtown courthouse, doesn't mean they don't desire to get married (with a REAL wedding) some day.

I actually applaud Mattie's SIL and fiance for wanting to do what they believe is right and have a "real" wedding, though they lack certain "people skills." I'm not quick to bash them for not throwing their morals out the window and just do whatever- like *someone* on here.

Well, it looks like I'm down to just two step-sisters.
The "bride" discovered that my good step-sis told my niece's bio aunt and grandma about the allegations because she is concerned for the well-being of the child. The "bride" did not take kindly to that and declared they are done and my sis will never see her or my niece again.
Then after I told Dickie about this, he went and sent the "bride" this message on FB:
I'm sure you don't care about what I say or feel at this point but here's the deal..
You have really gone over the line with this last episode of "drama with Helen". The accusations you have made NEED TO BE EXPLAINED TO THE REST OF THE FAMILY!!! My children have spent time with you and your family and if there is a predator amongst us (if that's true which I donít think it is) then for the safety of all our kids you need to explain what happened!! If you really are a family member then act like it. Again, not that you care about my opinion but I have told the rest of the family that until we get some answers, if you're around at the holidays WE WILL NOT COME!!!! Good luck to you and try to do right by your daughter because right now YOU'RE NOT!!!
I immediately started getting stressed out but then remembered that I don't have to. I will let Dickie fight this one for all of us; he could care less how abusive she may get. He's done with her.
We've been putting up with her BS for ages and we were all sick of it but tried for the sake of my step-mom to keep the family together after she died; it was one of the last things she asked of us.
uh oh, good sis just read the above email (Dickie asked that I forward it to her) and she is not happy. She wants him to try and un-message it from FB. Is that even possible?
<trying not to care, trying not to care, trying not to care>
No, Dickie has it right and he's willing to take it on. Let him. Do not let these people rule YOUR life. He's right about safe, family and being honest.

That dude who's daughter had a TSA worker tell her to "cover yourself up, you're 15" and was so humiliated (eyeroll) has his own blog page and seems like there are some deleted posts. I'm guessing anyone who did not agree with him.

Could be that she has hit a wall. I don't remember her being nearly as nit-picky about what other people are doing/wearing before she went to college. We've talked to her about it a lot, but she's going to have to realize she's being an insufferable tw@t for anything to change.

IIRC, Jam's dogs are getting up there in age. Plus, it depends on the dog. One of mine would be fine for 8 hours probably; the other, not so much.

Okay, I'll rephrase. They don't want it badly enough to do anything but talk about it.

Dickie is 100% right: This is about the safety of the kids. The family DOES deserve an explanation. If she were telling the truth, she'd be bitching about it to you sisters directly. She wouldn't be able to let it go. She's lying.

Just a couple a whiners. Mine are 13 and 11. They're on their own for about 10 hours. I come home and sometimes they are barely even interested in going outside. I walk in, head to the back door, and they just stand there looking outside then turn and head back inside. Its a Pug world, baby.
