[ - ] Repost with new content: I raised my sister, she is seventeen and is a fundamental part of our household. She has grown up with us. My mother in law purchased little gifts for all the children in the family, even the step kids, but left my sister out. Eighteen year old second cousin and all of the girls in her age group got little pearl necklaces with a pendant but not my sister? My sister is sensitive and it bothered her a bit, she felt left out. All the girls were taking pictures together with their new necklaces and she just awkwardly stood on the sidelines. And of course my sister in law made a snide remark about my husband paying for her college. Now, today, she brought two of the other girls (who are seventeen and eighteen) on a special little trip out to get manicures and go shopping. Sister was not invited. 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Yup. You love hanging out with the guy who was a better lover who you probably would have chosen if you could have, and might still, because you like to know you can still control him too, all while letting your husband be embarrassed by this guy but HE's the one to blame because he reacted terribly to knowing that you've been hiding your ex lover in plain sight. Jesus christ, is there ANYTHING that would be your fault? Can you not even pretend to see how this would fuck you up if you found out that your husband used to sleep with that best pal of his who he just likes to hang around with because they're buddies?

+1, down to my dc's godfather. He passed away a few weeks ago and I am heartbroken. DH is not too understanding. I guess it's hard to see your wife grieve another man. [ Reply | More ]

Hijack, a close guy friend of mine that I used to sleep with has been hooking up with this one girl for a few years. She and I became close friends but I thought it was his call on when she or if she should know that he and I have been together (I've been married since she met me). Now the two of them are officially dating and she still doesn't know. I feel very unethical about it but what can I do at this stage? [ Reply | More ]

Yes. We met through friends who had all inter-dated, etc. I'm guessing most of our friends have had sex with somebody else in our circle, in addition to their spouse. [ Reply | More ]

I was dating DH's college roommate. I broke up with that guy and started dating DH a few months later. They stayed roommates for the rest of college (1.5 years) without any drama. [ Reply | More ]

Yes. I am friendly still with my ex-DH. We split for good reasons yet remained (after the pain died away) friends. DH knows him, and thinks its fine. We're not particularly close these days, but we shared 10 years... [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] When you have options, how do you decided on a school for DC? DS starts K next year, we will have the following options (at least for applications): 1-very good, neighborhood school (walking distance) 2- Charter in 2nd year of operation (well regarded middle school just added elementary) not too far, but a drive 3- Some other magnets that are nearby, not really sure of the advantages but will look into. Ultimately what are some factors to consider--namely when evaluating charter vs. "base" public. TIA 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Not from NY, but it is nice to go to your neighborhood school in terms of fostering friendships, feeling of community. Being able to walk to school is huge! [ Reply | More ]

OP- also not in NY and my gut kind of is the neighborhood option somehow (maybe b/c of UB) but I feel like we need to put more thought into the process other then just register by xyz date! [ Reply | More ]
