May 29th 2011 1:20AM Saw a TV show recently, the woman held a US, Canadian and UK passport. How is this possible? You're a citizen of one country or the other. Why are we (the US) allowing multiple passports? Given the security issues these days, seems a little like letting the Nazi's in and nobody's watching. Other countries may not have the concerns we need to have. I don't have a problem with foreign visitors, but multiple passports presents a huge problem with identifying the "bad element". Why is this allowed?
Feb 7th 2011 10:19PM Just spoke to my mother about this forum. She admits that they were stricter on me (the first born) and the brother and and sister I have. Since I didn't get it wrong, my parents got laxer with the rest (who sometimes did). I interpreted it as "they had it easier than I did" which was true. Now technology has changed in the years between siblings now (sometimes 10-11 years), which makes a huge difference. Computers, cell phones and the like have made tremendous gaps between sibling. Things change in 5-6 years between them. Just life. A first born and a last born can have a lot of differences simply because of what's available to them.
Feb 7th 2011 3:51PM I almost believe this, although I think the sex of the first and last born matter. I am a first born female and have married two last born males. Both were mama's boys and coddled by their mother and older sisters. I was the first marriage for both and now I understand why. They are spoiled brats. Used to getting their way and will pout and have a literal tantrum when they don't. Both have gone on to several unsuccessful marriages.
Oct 21st 2010 11:54PM I'm not really replying to anyone, I just have a problem that when I vote on a reply "+" I see that I voted a reply down. Is this a biased program? I can't mis-type that many times. I've been keeping count and at least 25% are not the vote I made, especially if they are not favorable.
Oct 18th 2010 11:01PM I like Will Smith and Jada Pinkett, but is there no limit to parental indulgence? Every 7-9 year old wants to be a "pop" star, but this is stupid. Do they have a 5 year old in the wings? Is there not enough money in this family to provide? Why subject a child to this scrutiny and unkindness? Buy her a new Gucci jacket or purse (or maybe a kitten). This is so out of range I don't have a word for it. Crazy!
Oct 18th 2010 10:51PM "9" REALLY? How about real people that need a real job? This is so fu**ing ridiculous I can't find the words. A nine year old has a "career? Please stop publishing this drivel.
Oct 18th 2010 10:47PM Whoever said sister-in-laws were worse. You are absolutely right. And the older they are from the your husband the worse. The worst mother-in-law in the world can't compete with the sisters. They're jealous, mean and vicious.
Oct 18th 2010 10:45PM SAD, for you both. If you think that's the solution, all the sadder for you.
Oct 18th 2010 10:34PM Tell her to f**k off and tell him to go with her. I married a "mama's boy" you'll never win. NEVER. When she dies, he'll mourn her and it will probably be your fault because you "never cared". Be done with both of them. You and your daughter will be better off. My ex-husband is 56 years old, I was the first wife (19) and he had another and a child (that she allowed to quit high school) he still lives at home. A lovely man (child), but it is toxic all around.
Oct 18th 2010 10:23PM My MIL wasn't a bad woman, just raised an a**hole. How could she not think bad of me when he went running home after every argument, disagreement? He also discussed our sex life ( my mother would have went running if he' d tried to discuss it with her). I found it weird that a mother would listen to this from her son. Daughter, OK, son, not OK. She didn't like me too much, but can't blame her given that she only got one side from "her little boy". I didn't look so bad after the second wife though.
