My husband is from India, as part of his prayers he will sometimes break a coconut. We have no issues what soever in that department, we celebrate together, etc...
My only qualm is, what are we supposed to do with coconuts after her prays? He said he would take care of it and there is still a coconut in our refrigerator...it's been like a month...3 AnswersMarriage & Divorce6 years ago
My husband and I gave the required 60 days notice we would not be renewing our lease when it expires October 31. They've put a note on our door stating there is a $738 termination fee. Termination fee for what? We're not breaking our lease, we haven't damaged the apartment, we haven't even moved out yet.
I know a new management company took over but are they allowed to charge us $738 when we aren't violating any part of our lease?

My husband just accepted a new job out of state, and I'm really happy for him. The problem is when it comes to apartment hunting our budget does not match his wishlist. he wants to be very close to his job,which is understandable but he seems unwilling to raise the budget. How do I talk to him about this? Would an infographic help or maybe a spreadsheet?7 AnswersMarriage & Divorce8 years ago
I love my mom very much and I really do try to help her and listen to her. She has always had depression and anxiety (in school I couldn't even bring friends over to my house), I understand that with my grandmother sick she is going through a very hard time and I want to be supportive.
My problem is anytime I have a difference of opinion with her or plan to do something she doesn't agree with I always get messages or letters about how depressed she is, how she feels like hurting herself. My sister thinks she has a lot of borderline traits, and even I feel like sometimes she uses her depression to manipulate me.
Even if I offer her the help she needs, or try to give her the things she wants she refuses. When I still lived at home I would offer her the money for bills, she would refuse, and then complain to everyone how I don't help her out.
How do I handle her? Her depression is starting to make me depressed, I have a small baby so I have a lot going on too2 AnswersFamily8 years ago
I ordered a package and it was due for delivery Tuesday. My package was sent from the warehouse to the wrong local post office (all within 20 mins of my house, the warehouse/procssing facility is 15 mins away) There haven't been any updates since Tuesday. Am I even going to get my package?1 AnswerOther - Business & Finance8 years ago
I really love my husband. I know that he is a very good, caring person. There is absolutely no abuse or infidelity in our marriage. I'm just so unhappy, I feel marginalized all of the time. I gave up all of my friends, family, my job to be with him (I couldn't work due to a visa issue) and then we had a baby, now I'm staying home with her full time. He is older than me, he had wanted to be a father for some time, I had planned to wait a bit but I adore her.
We still have a good love life. I still try to make time for him. My problem is there are days when I feel so worthless and I resent giving up working, I hate that my family is sill mad at me for marrying him, they look down on me for not working right now (dd is 4ms). I feel like his culture completely dominates our household and anything I want, even if its something really simple comes last.
I love my husband. I don't want to divorce, things have been like this since December, I know that we can be salvaged but I don' know how.5 AnswersMarriage & Divorce8 years ago
When I had a fever of 103 my husband went to help a friend rent a car and took more than 4 hours. He was also supposed to pick up more tylenol (he did not). When I talked to him about it he acted like I was completely unreasonable for being pissed.
I'm considering giving him a dose of his own medicine. Just telling him I'm going to run a couple of errands and going out for the whole day; cellphone "off". He's used to always having me at his beck and call.2 AnswersMarriage & Divorce8 years ago
I feel so alone. I do not fit in well always with my husbands friends because they are Indian and I am not but I am also apparently not "western" enough for people in the US. I had lots of friends when I was living in India but now we live in the midwest and I have no one.
How do I fit in better? Especially when they always assume I know nothing about their culture before they even speak to me, I have lived in India, bollywood films are actually popular with my people, I eat similar foods. I want them to like me.
Also I'm about 10 years younger than my husband.4 AnswersFriends8 years ago
My father was adopted in the 60's and I was considering getting a dna test to see what my paternal heritage might be. I don't want to search for his birth parents (neither does he) I just want to know where my ancestry comes from.

I love my husband very much, the problem is he can be a bit bossy. When we plan our dinner menu together he used to tell me to choose half the dishes but anything I would suggest was usually vetoed. We don't celebrate my holidays ever and he openly admits he doesn't get along with my mother. I adore him but I want to celebrate Easter (we celebrate Easter more than Christmas), I want to eat foods that I like once in awhile. I want to have my own friends.4 AnswersMarriage & Divorce8 years ago
I'm debating sending a letter explaining to my father why I will no longer be speaking to him or just cutting all contact.
Before I get lots of answers saying how evil I am please keep in mind that he is a mentally and physically abusive alcoholic who once took $200 from me. I saw him yesterday at my grandmother's birthday and he essentially said I was a terrible daughter and the reason for most of his problems.10 AnswersFamily8 years ago
My daughter is 2 months. I'm one of those evil women who managed to quickly lose all of my baby weight and i really don't have many stretch marks. I just feel so incredibly ugly, honestly if my husband said he didn't find me attractive I would agree. (he's great a great guy) Why do I feel so completely hideous and like my life is worthless?6 AnswersNewborn & Baby8 years ago
