Everyone on this site has a FIL that knows he can get beat up in a heartbeat. There is no fatherly intimidation here. They seem to think before they speak a little bit.

Its the old ladies that just dont give a shit.

My FIL is an utter asshole, fuck that guy. He is really angry all the time, I've only seen him angry and pissed off, not happy, not sad just angry all the time. Loves spewing his stupid ideas and inane requests for hours, I think the record was me sitting there listing to him telling us to buy an apartment in their crappy village for no less than 5 hours.

 

He is super mean to his wife, who is a really nice lady, he has cheated on her at least twice, smokes, drinks and gambles. He wants everyone to live like he wants them to and gets pissed off when they refuse him. My fiancee told me how he treated her when she was a child, always refusing her everything, breaking up her friendships and so on.

 

Man, fuck that guy.

My father in law is a lovely man, I can't say a bad word against him. Guy's quiet as a mouse and sweet as a puppy dog. An utterly decent person. And his wife has all the charm and grace of an exploding toilet.

when my wife was a baby, she got boiling water on her skin and fell into coma. my MIL desperately searched for a hospital that could help, but 4 had refused her, saying the baby was a goner. when a hospital finally accepted her and treated the burns, she regained consciousness. but my FIL felt treatment was too expensive and took her away early. so, now my wife has scarring that could've been healed.
when our first baby was born, my FIL decided to be unhelpful, and made his exit by attacking his wife with a broom in the hospital ward, my wife and child screaming and crying, and staff looking on. other patients were probably ordering popcorn.

usually he works in other provinces, and brings home the bacon. but recently he was irritated that our house was solely owned by MIL (FIL gave our first mortgage away to his greedy housemarket-riding sister, so we pay 2nd mortgage rates now). he said: "give me half of the house now or i trash the place." naturally he does this shit when i'm away working in the city. he decided to stockpile his cash instead of handing it to the family, but MIL discovered the stash soon enough. he doesn't know how to open a bank account. MIL took a dangerous risk by using the stash to pay off a loan, but it worked out. he's talking with us again, so no more eerie silence from him.

when our 2nd child was born, the family avoided FIL by staying in my work apartment in the city. hardly the nicest place to spend your first days, but MIL is good at keeping the nest clean. FIL was thoroughly embarassed in front of relatives, so he does a bit to help out now. reluctantly. his grandkids will love him if he can behave, so no need to drag up mistakes from the past.

A:As humans gain knowledge and money, they realize the long term cost and sacrifice involved to raise children. The poor and uninformed just do it because they don't know any better. The higher the income per capita, the lower the birth rate. This wont change any time soon. The price of progress and enlightenment. -- ambivalentmace
