My Dad, his wife and my 1/2 brother all have a family phone plan that my dad pays for.
My husband gets a company phone so I asked my dad if I could join their plan. He told me I would need to send him about $40 a month.
But he pays for my brothers phone. My brother is single, 28 and is a struggling artist. Im 31 married and a SAHM to 2 kids 2 and 5.

Would you be upset?

Dude. No. You are grown and can pay for a phone. Straight talk is only $45 a month.

Sounds like you want your dad to pay your bill too but didn't have the balls to say it to him.

So basically you wanted to join their plan and pay nothing?

If you were paying for 1 thing for 1 kid, wouldnt you pay for the other?
I have 2 kids too. I cant imagine doing this someday.

Yup. If you had 2 kids would you buy them both ice cream and not make 1 pay their own?

Honestly, no I'd be embarrassed.  You're a grown woman with a husband to support you.  Go to GameStop and get a Cricket.  It's $35 a month.
