• Why is my dad so annoying and retarded?

    I’m 16! I’m an adult! He won’t let me go to my boyfriends house tonight because he thinks I’m going to have sex with him. He’s having a birthday party for another friend and I know his friend and we’re good friends. My dad thinks I’m just going to have sex with him! It’s completely unfair!

    My mom has schizophrenia, bi polar, OCD, PTSD, whatever else u can think of and she is OBSESSED. She has made her problems her and not just a part of her. She posts nothing but things about her disorders on Facebook that bluntly say she's a victim of this and that and it's annoying. She's never worked and spends her husband's money on stupid stuff. When I'm around her I feel uncomfortable. Her house is always messy and smells like pee and she does nothing but sleep and play on her laptop. She has an autistic daughter who doesn't know how to read and her husband is a little off too I feel like she could've done a lot more to help with her kid and she doesn't manage what she eats and let's her just sit in front of the computer too all day she's only like 9 but she acts like she's 4 and I feel like there's more my mom can do like with her weight and hygiene. My mom has showed up at my door before with out asking (she has no vehicle she'll just walk). I just don't really want much to do with them because it's just depressing and they kinda smell. I have nothing to do with any of my family really and I think my mom neglected me as a child. Also anytime I'm around her, all she does is talk about past things and abuse and stuff. I have bi polar but at least I try to not harp on it and try to eat healthy and just try to do things to make me happy. The least she can do is try to help herself but she swims in hopelessness. Wtf to do?

  • Why don't most people marry and start families young anymore?

    Best answer: It's called "the curse of affluence".. As societies "advance" economically, values shift from family and community to individual financial status, especially among the middle class... high school kids are obsessed with getting into college specifically to get high-paying jobs... college... show more
    Best answer: It's called "the curse of affluence"..

    As societies "advance" economically, values shift from family and community to individual financial status, especially among the middle class... high school kids are obsessed with getting into college specifically to get high-paying jobs... college kids are obsessed with starting careers, and spend the first several years after graduation focused on personal advancement...

    The net result is a generation of people in their mid-to-late 20s (prime parenting years) who are focused entirely on themselves... buy the time they have finally "made it" in their own minds, most are either too old to start families or can only afford (both in terms of finances and energy) to have one or two children at the most.

    This is why you see population decreases in places like Japan or sharp demographic shifts in other First World nations due to minorities and lower economic classes out-breeding establishment classes by as much as 4-to-1...

    So my husband and I have been married for 8 months now, but he didn't officially move in with me until just recently. I also have a teenage daughter from my first marriage who lives with me for most of the year. Up until yesterday, he and my daughter have gotten along great and I really enjoyed having a real family unit again. However last night when my daughter was doing laundry she discovered some kind of recording device with a little camera lens taped under one of the shelving units in her bedroom closet. We have no idea how long it's been there or if it's even functional. We weren't too alarmed at first, but over the course of the night she became increasingly panicked at the thought of somebody watching her in her sleep. I texted my husband (he's currently out of town) and asked him if he knew anything about it. At first he denied knowing anything, but after a couple of hours he called me and admitted that he put it there. He claimed that he only put it there to "keep tabs" on her and that it was "for her own safety". It's true that she was HAS gotten into trouble recently for drinking and she DOES have a history of sneaking out. Even if he did put it there for those reasons, this is still way over the line, right? I want desperately to believe his reasoning, but I'm starting to suspect that he probably has other motives for putting it there. He won't be home for another two days. How should I handle this until then and what should I do when he gets back?

  • Do you feel uncomfortable when moms take their sons into the women’s restroom?

    Best answer: He’s 4 years old. What’s he going to do? I would feel uncomfortable about a mother leaving her 4 year old standing outside a bathroom by himself.

    First things first I grew up in a house full of siblings. I was 1 out of 7 kids and I'm the second eldest. My boyfriend is 1 of 3 kids and is the middle child. My boyfriend and I are parents to our ONE and ONLY child, but since our daughter turned 2 my mom has been constantly asking when we plan on having our second. Each and every time I firmly tell her "We're not, xxxx is the only grandbaby from us" She always goes into a meltdown saying, "How I failed her as a daughter" and "how she'll never be a grandma to lots of babies" Yet all my siblings have kids! I keep telling her that it was our choice not to have anymore because one is plenty for us which in turn she replied, "You'll change your mind" I tell her that we've always planned on having just one child and he got a vasectomy to insure that. She then tells me that I'm "being mentally abused" by my boyfriend into thinking that way and I should "think about having a big family because that's how I was raised" How can I get it through to her that we don't want anymore kids?

She's been in FL all her life, I just got here 4 years ago. She has a good job with a major insurance company, I have a good job with a bank. My bank is in LA, her insurance company may be. I have a feeling she does not have a clue what being an actor is like. Should we take the dive and move [will deplete our savings for sure]?

He doesn’t eat the food my wife makes because he sticks to a diet for the gym which is an insult every time he comes to my house. Without sounding rude he dresses kind of gay & he bakes pastries (he doesn’t eat them) for my daughter. I think she deserves somebody who’s masculine not someone with a baby face that watches Bravo
