Um...I apologized for the use of profanity. I have nothing else to apologize for. And...I am hardly a child. I am nearly 43, have lived on my own since I was 18, been married since I was 23, have managed to have a decent marriage, three children, two of whom have special needs. I am an adult, and am treated as such by my mom and my MIL. I have basically NO MIL issues. My issues have been with a couple of my husband's sisters. You are the one who is belittling and acting like you are some expert just because you are older. As I have said, older does not mean wiser. It just means you were born earlier than I was. I have known very young people who were wise, and old people who were foolish. I sincerely hope that you get some help. Because you seem to be awfully unhappy. None of us has "arrived"...you included Dear. I listen to older and younger folks, along with folks in my age group. Everyone has something to contribute. For you to simply write younger ladies off, really shows just how unwise you are. Again, to the rest of the ladies here, For the profanity, I apologize. But I refuse to cowtow and apologize for what I believe. I stand by my opinions and views. Feel free to disagree.
