  • That is a tough one. I think I would sit down and talk with her and let her know that she cares about her, and that she does not approve of the drinking, but that he is now a grown man and makes his own decisions. She might also say that if she feels that badly about him, she might want to put off the wedding till they get counseling.

  • Your sister owes no one an explanation as to what her grown son does or doesn't do. Its no ones business. The best advice that you can give your sister is to tell her those exact words to tell to anyone that tries to make her son's issues her problem...

  • I would never -- and I mean NEVER -- speak to my MIL or future MIL that way. How incredibly disrespectful. She certainly doesn't sound like a healthy, balanced individual and if she's in a bad relationship - she plays her part too. Why would your sister tolerate this kind of treatment. I would tell this girl to grow up - she's an adult and if she doesn't like her relationship she needs to work it out herself and stop blaming other people. Your sister should stop being a doormat and letting this selfish, ungrateful woman walk all over her. Man.. if it was me I would say, "If I am so horrible, find another baby sitter. Give me back my car, and I expect you to find another trailer. Don't you EVER speak to me that way again."
