The only real fight my wife and I have had in 8 years was her older sister asking for money to pay a speeding ticket, and wife was going to.

I told her that the ticket would cost her $75, but it only cost me $20 to file for divorce ( no kids at the time)

She called her sister back, and she has never asked us for money again. Her parents paid that ticket though.

This thread reminds me why I am glad my wife is an only child and that my brothers and sisters know better than to ask me for help. As far as I know, they don't even have my telephone number.

The only thing relatives like that are good for is a kidney.

Last time I talked to my brother he invited me to go fishing. Except that it was on a charter boat and him and his buddies were short the money to go and needed a fourth person to chip in.

I completely agree with this. You have to be ready for it to be a gift otherwise it will be a source of conflict. I have helped out family members a lot in the past and what I learned was it never really got them out of the hole. It would get them out of that specific hole but they would quickly dig a new one.

The ONLY time we hear form my mother in law is when she needs something........they live 9 miles away and have been to our house twice....My parents live 100 miles away and have been to our home more times than I can count and usually bring us something.just out of the blue and offer us their house up north to use like its ours !

I have a hard time saying no.My neighbors were down on their luck.I offered them the use of one of my cars.......Little did I know that he was driving it to Detroit everyday, lost two hubcaps and the air conditioner quit working.I had to beg for it back..then she had the gull to charge me for daycare...my kids waited for the bus in front of their house ! I got my car back..no hub caps, no air conditioning,,smelled of cigarettes and no gas .
