Is it just me?

I came home to feed marco before. My parents and sister were going at er. She had applied to a job, and got it. Its 15 hrs a week, and she would still work her other job. Now (the days she works rhis new job she has off her other), so really she's not working anymore just getting paid more really. She asked me a few weeks vack what I would do. I told her if she wants the job, and she isn't happy at her full time job to go for it. My parents were going at it saying she wnt have a personal life. I just stated that I would 4 jobs and not once have they worried about my personal life. My sister said last week how she wants to move out because my parents control her life, now I don't know by the sounds of it they do. I come and go, work and they don't really say anything just asking if they have to feed Marco if I work late. Now the only difference is my sister has a bf 10 years they've been together. My parents make this clear, she's starting to go out on her own. Lately she's been coming home, and working not spending 24 hrs a day with him, needing his permissuon to take a crap. Now for me if I was together for 10 years they arnt engaged (no talk of it ) whenever she brings up about moving in together he has an excuse. Now he got money enheritted awhile ago, she told me he has over $300,000 plus he could go buy a house on the spot. They told me to mind my own business, and it doesn't concern me. I just put my two cents in and told her what I would do not trying to get her to fail like her bf and my parents. When she has applied to jobs in the past they always have something negative to pull out.

They are probably not engaged because he is afraid if they break up she will get some of that money he inherited. Just my ignorance I guess if I'm being too nosy or blunt but it's what I think. I don't like the excuses, there shouldn't be a need for that after ten years but I have known a couple being together with many kids who still haven't tied the knot, they prefer it that way I think.

Now after 10 years if I was your sister, I would definitely have to give this guy an ultimatum. It would be either you give me a ring or I am gone. I am a person that always wanted to be married and I had a ring from my husband within six months of the time that we got together. However, we did wait for another two years before we were married because we had to be able to save the money that we needed to be able to have the kind of wedding that I wanted to have.

It sounds to me that this guy and your sister are glorfied FBuddies. He obviously doesn't love her enough or he she, to even try to commit to anything...

No harm in having an opinion, most people have them. The exchange is between you and your sister; if your sister wants your input then I feel it is quite okay to give it to her.
