See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
So my BIL has always been a little hard to deal with but whatever he's family. He recently married a girl from the Ukraine which I have nothing against people of other nationalities but you have to admit there are alot of girls over there who want to come here only for the money. Well we all knew it would be hard for both of them, I mean any marriage you have to work at but throw in a different culture and it can be really hard! We all voiced our concernes but he wanted to marry her anyway so the family went along with it and we even planned the wedding for her so they could be married a few days after she got here. Everyone tried to be really nice and accomodating but we started to notice she was very melancholy! I understand wanting to keep touch with family but she spends 85% of the day by herself on the computer or on skype and doesn't seem to make much effort to connect with the rest of us. I don't feel like I know her any better than when she first got here. Recently she's been pushing BIL to go and find work elsewhere. We have a family business and he pretty much puts in the minimum work he can here and tries to get as much as he can out, whatever he's always been like that. I think he needs someone to push him but she's pushing him farther away from the family and always seems to be talking about money! She's now convinced him they need to move down to Ft. Lauderdale because that's where the money is. He has no car, little to no savings and no prospects of work but she's convinced they'll hit it big so they're making the move! I really hope they'll be ok but I really don't know anymore!
