Have you ever fallen out with a family member? What was it about? Money? Children? Or maybe it was your choice of partner your family didn,t agree with.
I fell out with my sister in law years ago. At the time she was unemployed, and we had 2 children. We lived a good 30 miles away from her, and she would regularly ring us up, to ask us to drive all that way, to take her to the next town, (which was about 5 miles from her) so that she could cash her giro!!
I wouldn,t mind but she never gave us any petrol money. I think the OH did it because he felt a sense of loyalty to her I suppose. She would also regularly ask for “loans”. Now again, bear in mind that we had 2 kids to look after, she isn,t married, no children. Yet she expected us to give her money all the time!!
In fact I also remember when I was pregnant with my daughter, because of her money troubles, she got thrown out of her house. I drove all the way to her house, took her to the court, and we put her up on the floor in our house(we only had 2 bedrooms) PLUS her 2 cats, and she still moaned!!
This of course caused no end of rows between me and the OH. To this day she has never paid it back.
Once we took her on holiday with us. BIG mistake. Almost as soon as we got there we wished we hadn,t taken her. She moaned constantly from day one, about everything, from her lack of cash, to what we were going to eat, to the children making too much noise for her.
When my youngest was born 10 years ago, she came to our old house to se him, (she borrowed someones car) and that was the last time we saw her. I have no desire to see her again ever. The rest of his family, his other sister and brother, have never seen my youngest. In fact when he was born they didn,t even send a congratulations card.
Who have you fallen out with in your family, and how do things stand now? Have you made up or moved on, and no longer have anything to do with them?
