One Uppers from his cousins

Down Talkers from them all

I can't name one of his family members I actually like, lol luckily none have cafe mom so I can actually speak more openly and not have drama.

YES. What I don't like is they are secretive about everything, even useless stuff. Obviously it has rubbed off on hubs...he is a decent man as in he won't cheat, provides for us so I can be a sahm etc. but gawd, they just have too much secrecy even about stupid stuff. Another thing is there is one beyatch sis in law and many brothers. They all go to her for info and share there probs with her and she tells everybody. I hope she ends up unable to communicate ome day soon!!

 EX mil thank you very much!

ex is an alcoholic (never abusive etc, but it caused me all kinds of stress, not to mention financial problems).  for 10 years she was in denial about his drinking. no matter how many DWI's he got, even a felony DWI, court ordered rehab in and out patient, car breathalizer, ankle alcohol monitor - you name it! i begged her for help and she was content to leave me to deal with alone while having to work fulltime and raise our two kids!

finally i called it quits a year ago and ex moved in with his mom and she finally had to deal with it! she finally forced him to go to therapy after a few months of dealing with it herself and he is on 7 medications!

i still talk to my ex daily, we get along very well 99% of the time and he is a good personand awesome dad - when not drinking of course. i havent talked to his mom in over a year.

i am glad she has had to deal with his drinking first hand and i am glad that it has caused her stress and worry - been there, done that on my own for years!
