  1. Logically speaking

    3 years into marriage, my DXH (Dear Ex-Husband) approached me to ask if I could be the guarantor to the car that MIL wanted to purchase. Since she had then just quit her job (to concentrate on her sons weddings... Yes sincerely my God why???), the car was to be under his name. The family is all botched up with bad financial record so no one else's credit was good except his.

    Since their record was terrible, and I was a guarantor already for bis brother who did not pay up his (where ...
  2. Angst

    MIL is a pain.

    When my ex wanted to divorce me, I went to her for help. For the record, my relationship history with her is not good. I'm the least preferred DIL of hers for the reason that she is not able to control me - I didn't allow her to bully me.

    his Mommy is still packing him lunch. Big lunch boxes with a balanced meal ( proteins, carbs, fruit, a juice, yoghurt and something sweet).

  5. help... is it me or MIL?

    Hi all

    I am new here and I am looking for some advice.
    My DH and I will be married 4 years in October, my DH is from israel and he is jewish, I am not. When my DH and first started dating and getting serious he informed that he told MIL [ who still lives in israel] that we were
    serious and she told I needed to convert to Judaism.
    I am more or less an atheist so this was not something
