When I drive it the car stops at random times, it's dangerous. And the window doesn't work. I can't even go through a drive thru because the window won't go down. What should I do? How should I tell my parents that i hate it and that I want a new car?

    I am not against abortion, but I never expected this from her. My sister and her husband are hardcore pro life so if they knew there's no telling what would happen.

    I am not against abortion, but I never expected this from her. My sister and her husband are hardcore pro life so if they knew there's no telling what would happen. She's legally an adult and is in her second year of college. She won't give me any details about the father, but as far as I know he is in another relationship. What she wants is for me to travel with her (it's pretty far) so she isn't alone and help her pay. My main concern is if she regrets it and just keeping this secret in general. I'm leaning towards helping her, but I'm still so unsure. Never really thought this would happen to someone I know.

    I am a lawyer, my oldest is going into neurosurgery, second oldest is interning at Micron and is shooting to be an engineer. The youngest are the twins. The oldest twin has already taken up the debate club and is set on following my footsteps. On the other hand, her sister (the other twin) wants to work in child care... That career choice doesn't seem fulfilling or very succesful. I don't know how she could have the siblings she does and choose child care. I really don't understand and I want to support her but I can't.

    I live with my sister and her boyfriend. Right now my dad is paying for our rent and utilities (the bills are in our names and he gives us money) so we can save our money to later invest.

    I live with my sister and her boyfriend. Right now my dad is paying for our rent and utilities (the bills are in our names and he gives us money) so we can save our money to later invest. My sister’s boyfriend lives with us rent-free and I told my sister he should contribute. My sister and I split the grocery bill and he buys some of his own. She argues that her bf has no problem driving us places (he does sometimes pick me up from work) and says he cannot afford to pay $200 - $300 in rent even though he works full time as he is “paying off his own bills.” She also says “dad pays for everything so butt out,” and accuses me of ruining her happiness. I think this is immature as the original plan was for my dad to help my sister and me gradually move out on our own. My dad also does not approve of her boyfriend even living with us and doesn’t know that he is. Any thoughts on what I should do?? I hate being stuck in the middle :/

    I never really enjoyed meat anyway (I don't mind if others do, you do you type of thing) so when I was like fourteen I decided to be vegetarian. My parents laughed at me and said when I started cooking my own meals I could, so I learned to cook but they still mock me. There's always some sort of joke during meal times and when I try to leave the table to eat elsewhere they get so mad at me and tell me to stop being so offended. Anyway, my younger sister has been learning to cook from my mom lately and gave me a "veggie burger". Once I knew it wasn't I got so angry and my parents kept saying it wasn't a big deal because I wasn't dying and my older brother just laughed and made more jokes. I'm 16 so I can't move out but it's going too far. I just don't like meat, that's it! I remember a time when I could sit down at the dinner table to discuss my day without someone demanding that I eat the steaks that are served.

    They've lived with me for over a year. She was getting bruises and black eyes occasionally, but she made excuses. Recently I heard them arguing and he threatened her with homelessness if she left him. It was super abusive. I didn't do anything because in my head I justified it that if she makes excuses for him it must be because it's her fault and she hits him first or something, But it didn't sound like that at all and he's never had a scratch. So then my brother hit her again except worse than before, she has 2 black eyes, but she fought back. She broke 2 of her fingers punching him in the face, and she gave him a minor hip fracture and a broken arm hitting him with a baseball bat. So he called me from hospital telling me to kick her out. She was going to leave but she asked me to lend her money, because apparently she doesn't have any even though she has worked and is trying to get a job and he doesn't. Apparently he takes all of her money which I didn't know but it makes sense from what I've seen. So instead of kicking her out I sent his stuff to our parent's house and said she could stay. Except now my parent's are blaming me for everything and calling me disloyal even when I explained. I think this is the right thing to do, even if he's family. Am i wrong?

    Here's the deal: I'm 16 and my mom is 47. My dad passed away when I was 11. For two years she was a shut in. She cut back on her hours at work and didn't cook for us (Me and my younger brother had to raise ourselves). After 2 years my mother finally recovered and got her social life back in order. Eventually she met this man while at a small party. They started talking and then dating. All was fine until my mom invited him to move in 2 years ago. When he moved in he started to control us and how we live. First he started watching us with our homework and wouldn't leave me or my brothers side until we were done. Then he told my mom to get tracking devices on our cell phones. If we weren't at the house he would call us several times and demanded to know where we were going. He also banned junk food in the house and made us go vegetarian (could only eat meat when alone). It increasingly got worse with child filters, internet tracking, limiting internet time to 2 hours a day, and drug tests once a month. The last straw was when he installed cameras throughout the house, INCLUDING OUR ROOMS! (said it was for "safety") We now have to get changed/dressed in the bathroom. My mom agreed with everything to keep him happy even though me and my brother refused. On Christmas Eve he proposed in front of our whole family and she agreed. Me and my brother do NOT want this man to be our step-father. We are deciding to formally state we won't attend the wedding. How should we tell my mom this?

    Today I turned 19 and the plan was for me to watch black panther with my friends, I met my friends at the mall since I took a lyft and they carpooled from school. After the movie I decided to get in the car with them to go back to school(they were going back to get into their own cars) and get my lyft their since it would be $6 cheaper, in the car we decided to go out to eat I of course asked my mom if it was ok and she said yes only to call me a minute later saying I was a problem start and sneaky because I apparently knew we were going to get food beforehand and decided not to ask her(wtf?) we ended up going to steak and shake and she told me that there couldn’t be any places open at this time(mind you this is a Thursday night down town where restaurants are open until midnight) she then proceeded to tell me I had to come home immediately. When I got home she said the whole situation was disrespectful and I asked why she was doing this and she said I deserved it for being sneaky. I literally asked for permission and she said it was fine. I’m transferring to a new school in the fall and will be out of the house, I understand I’m living in her house=her rules but she expects me to call and text her whenever I go somewhere at 19 so when I transfer what is she gonna expect? I’m taking 26 credit hours a semester and I’m in class 9-5 but I never get any slack smh

  • Why are adopted kids more likely to turn out badly?

    Although most adoptees end up raised in good homes, they still have higher drug/crime rates. Even if the adoptive parents weren’t like that, the child has a higher chance of screwing up compared to biological kids. Especially those who were adopted later than 12 months old or has memory of having no parents.

    Best answer: They follow different religions which brings with different customs. The British are Anglican/Church of England, the Spanish are Roman Catholic.
    Succession to the throne is now different. In Spain male-preference primogeniture means sons are ahead of daughters in the succession; Britain it is now absolute primogeniture by age rather than gender which is in line with most of the other European monarchies.
    In the UK if the Queen does not approve the potential spouse of someone in the succession they lose their place. In Spain, both the parliament and the king would both have to disapprove a match for that to happen.
