My brother-in-law and sister have been having financial problems - serious financial problems.

Oh that is a tough spot to be in.

I had a friend in a similar situation.

And, oh yeah!

I wanted to say "welcome back to the board!"

I remember your previous posts about your children and your family. I'm sorry that things haven't improved. Did your brother and wife ever get to adopt?

Hope you stick around. And you, and everyone, is welcome to post in the folder "Conversation Corner".

Hi Irish Tea,

Glad to see you back too. I've been your shoes too. My friends are in financial straights, but they blame each other for the money problems. Dave Ramsey books are great. Perhaps you should buy them the "Complete Money Makeover" book. He will inspire them to a debt free life, but let me tell you it is work. Both people need to be on board and that usually comes when both partners are sick and tired of bills piling up and not being able to afford stuff. The next time, she brings up the finances, tell her about Dave Ramsey. Tell her she will NEVER get out from under until she and DH stop using credit cards and start paying them off.
