Sorry to hear about your brother Piob...
Got family problems of my own.
My cousin, who is a few years younger than me got married earlier this summer. Oh, he also just had his baby last week. Do the math...
So its basically been bullshit since the birth. His mother, my "aunt", wasn't able to see the baby for several days because his new MIL is... well she's kind of overbearing from what I've gathered. Apparently my aunt was all in tears because she couldn't see her goddamn grandson because the MIL made her stay down there. She is getting to see her new grandson later this week, IIRC.
That's part of the ish, and it gets worse.
My uncle was saying to FIL that hey, money's tight so they could move home, my cousin could finish up at the university that is down the road from where they live. FIL says, that's a good idea so five days after the birth, they are going to move from where he currently goes to school in the middle of the state (A really good school btw, more on that later) and move with the in laws to a small town several hours away and go to a different school that's 90 minutes away. Clearly a less desirable situation than before but hey, his wife wanted it (which means MIL probably wanted it) so its being done!
Now, he was at a really good school on full scholarship for his sport. His wife doesn't like him travelling so he had to drop that despite having (IIRC 2 more years until graduation and 2 seasons of eligibility). Dude was the team's best player in a high-profile sport for a really good team. So he stopped. Now he's going to have to come up with tuition. Oh and she doesn't like him being gone for his sport, well wtf is going to happen when he spends 3 fucking hours travelling every day for school? I will refrain from predicting what happens because my predictions with that shit are never wrong.
Ugh, its a giant fucking mess. So many stupid and catastrophically short-sighted decisions being made.
