Ok, this is more of a vent but I need some insight here from people that can be objective to situation. Me and my husband have been having financial problems--i know, who isn't :). anyways, this last week we recieved eviction letter , a letter that our savings account is getting levied by a hospital here, and disconnect letter from utility company. we have no money to recify any of this so start calling parents. his mom 1st who turns down any type of help b/c she is taking care of my hubby's 2 brothers families since they were in motorcycle accident. then called to let my dad know , hoping he'd offer some type of help-he yelled that he just helped when car broke down and paid over a thousand for that a few weeks ago. so we expected no help. I call my sister and she wants me to leave hubby and come live with her and her 2 boys and bring my 2 kids. WTF!!! I say no and she says well i'm not gonna help then. well ok. a few hours later my dad shows up and paid all back rent which was almost 1300 dol. the next day he caught up all car payments another thousand bucks. I tell my sister this when she calls and she yells at me!!!!!!! Says she's disappointed that OUR dad helped me out that I'm going to cause him to go broke etc. I'm sorry but what did she want me to live on street with my kids and husband. she wanted me to leave him and go to a whole new state, a state that she knows I won't even be able to keep my job in. my question is she right to be upset with me since dad decided to pay all that and set up repayment arrangements with me? don't know if it matters but i'm 27 and sis is 38.

Your sisters reaction seems a little strange, if not downright rude. While it was nice of her to offer you and the kids a place to stay,she had no reason to think you would leave your husband behind. Not many women would do that! You both are old enough to know better

thank you, point taken. I thought she being a little uncaring, just wanting me leave him we've been married for 6 years now and have 2 kids. our marriage is a good one. so i don't know where that came from. we have all been a little stressed this month marks 6 months since our mom passed away and I know she feels a little guilty b/c she wasn't here and I-and my family was the ones to find her , my mom, at my parents house and we were first at hospital after ambulance took her. But I don't think my sister should be taking all of that out on me , you know thanks for responding

No, she shouldn't take it out on you. But, if you think it is her guilt talking, then I guess take the things she says with a grain of salt and try to get along with her. Hopefully whatever is eating at her will go away or at least make her more sensible
