• Does this make any sense?

    I will be getting married next year to a wonderful man who already owns a home. My parents are telling me that I should own a home before I get married, even if I will be moving in with him. They say I will regret it later if I don’t. Can someone explain that to me?!??

    I found out tonight that my wife is pregnant, I was shocked because she has been "taking" birth control regularly since we got married because she and I decided we wanted to wait until she and I were both threw with our phds to have kids. She will be through at Christmas, I still have another year. Apparently she is pregnant because she has been flushing her birth control down the toilet every night, I wasn't using a condom because I felt pretty sure that if the birth control failed than it was just meant to be for us to have a child then. I don't know how I should feel about this pregnancy, because it is one that happened because of lies. It is my child, and I am excited about being a daddy but still, this is bittersweet. Is it wrong for me to feel this way? A.) I've always been a terrible speller, my phd is in political science, and I have a law degree, one spelling error does not detract from my education. B.) Yes, she IS pregnant, I've seen three pregnancy tests that have confirmed this. C.) She admitted to flushing these pills down the toilet every night or washing them down the sink. When she came and told me she was pregnant, I was shocked of course, I began asking questions about how this had happened, she got upset, started crying and admitted to this. She wanted my sympathy, and was agitated when I would not give it to her.

    Hello, everyone. Thank you for taking the time to give me some advice. Well, I have lived in a townhouse for 3 years and my neighbors have been there before we were. Last night as I walking up to my door my neighbor was standing by her window and she doesn't speak much english said, "hello" and i said "hello" back and went on my way. BUT she said hello three more times and I backed up to talk to her. She was saying "husband" husband""husband" and i kept trying to figure out what she was saying...and then she started pretended to punch herself. The look in her eyes scared me. I seriously thought he was standing behind her with a gun.(thats how scared she seemed). She made a sign for "phone" so i got my phone and offered it to her...but she just wanted my phone number. I gave it too her. I have not been able to stop thinking about her or what is going on inside that house. Should I call the police?I don't want her to get beat after the police show up if they leave..but a part of me thinks that she wanted my number to call if she needed help. It breaks my heart. Im not racist but does anyone know any facts that go on in a Muslim marriage?That is what background they are from. Her face is always covered and i can't see if she is bruised..but she never leaves the house, only with him. I never really noticed until yesterday and now all of signs are clear. and for the one that said.."why did you give her your number?" lol...hmmmmm maybe because im a caring person and if finds it and calls me i have already decided to prentend im someone from somewhere else..or whatever. At least she has my ## to hold on too.

    ok- what i've been through 2 years of my sister in hospital for sculliosis 2 years [on and off] of my mom in hospital for a tumor in ..y'know. one day for each of my dad's kidney stones [one was today, the other maybe a week ago] ________________________________________... my mom.. i love her but sometimes i just can't stand her. she is always telling me i need to lose weight, that i have a gut. i never thought i was fat until she told me that i couldn't get a bikini until I lost 20 pounds. I'm 5"9' and weigh 119 Is that bad? My sister is 5"7' and weighs 119 too. I'm always told I suck at sports, esp. my favorite one, swimming. I wasn't allowed to join swim team because I "suck" at it. I really don't think I'm that bad.. I mean I made the highest group for our school's swimming classes. (3's) && I suck at speed; running, strength, I'm told I'm lazy. Told I need to get my grades up (I have a 3.95) the only reason it isn't a 4.0 is because i have a b in gym. really. /= && i did get hit once but i think she was just really mad. she asked me to pick up sticks so i went to where i thought she was pointing and she yelled at me and told me the other direction and i yelled back sorrry i thought you were pointing that way but i didn't mean for it come out as snotty as it sounded and she had me come to the house and she slapped my face really hard {i have braces and i couldn't go to the ortho b/c my gum was bruised from the brackets being pushed into them} and she warned me that if i talked to her like that again i would get smacked 5 more times "I don't care if you have braces or not" /= she switches her tones so easily she'll yell at me to come upstairs or do something and once im finished she'll be like "thank you (:" /= i just got back from the barn crying in my dad's pickup and i can barely see this screen so sry if i have typos. and if this WAS abusive ; what kind..and how do i stop it? and should i do this..?: i was thinkin when i was in the barn and if she thinks i havetoo much of a gut i'll just stop eating and that'll worry her so much maybe it'l finally get her back. its not like i have an appetite anyways. wow, thanks to both of you. thepreciouspea && i + i you are both a great help. i honestly don't know which one to choose for best answer. thepreciouspea, you must have taken a lot of time i + i no i dont live on a farm, i used to live on a farm but we had to get rid of the animals b/c we had to get rid of the barbwire b/c i split my leg open on it when i was 3. still, we have a lot of yardwork to do and a garden. thank you lovett. (: wow this is going to be hard..for best answer. i dont want to get out of my mom's house though, i'm only 12 and she's nice and everything. its not like its a really bad situation. and about the depression thing - i already had depression. no not that fake "emo" depression. the depression b4 the word emo ever existed when i was in 5th grade. i was going to drink a cup of oven cleaner but my mom was in the way of the cabinet so i didn't do it. i was that close /= im not thinking of doing that again. even if i do get depressed - i don't think ill think of suicide unless its thinking of how my mom would feel then if i did do it.

    My mother died a few week´s ago , and my father has been gone since my Little brother was born.he is 3 . and my family expects me to assume his custody and raise him as my son. I long told my mother( since she got sick) that I wouldn´t take him but she put it in her will that I would take him and raise him. I´m 18 years old and by law I can already take his custody. Last time I was with my family we end up screaming at each other and I told them I want my life and not one like my mother had.. How to tell them that I want a life and a career and not a life of a single mom with no university degree? when I speak my family I mean grand parents and grand grand parent..I have an older brother whos in the army in over 10 years he was the first to day that he wouldnt take the baby. there was no money left it was used to pay to the bank.. I´m not in america I´m in europe and trying to emmigrate .if I take him I cannot do that.. yes women do this all the time the difrence is that that women actually are the mothers they have no choice its their own fault since none of us accepts the custody his with a social assistent

He smokes pot and so does this girl. He has dated her before and they broke up and she was using him to get to the pot and chew and now they are back together but I think I love him. I do know what love is because I was in love with the other guy for 7 years and I think I'm starting to feel that again. Today when my friend told me he was dating the girl again he said that I still owe him a kiss, I said if he wanted one he would get one, he said I'm dating ___, then I'm like oh well your loss and he was like ya it is. What does this mean? Please help me and talk me through this, I'm desperate. Please answer this question, I'm desperate.
