MY GP is getting married in two weeks. I CANNOT wait until it's OVER.

Shockingly, she's making all the decisions, and he jsut "has to show up for HER special day." YES...that's what they are calling it. Anyways, the most recent thing that cracked me up, was when she made comments about them having kids; "He says that he doesn't care how many we have, as long as he gets HIS boy."

Me --->

After I recovered, I said, "Um...why don't you get back to me on that after the first baby arrives."

Neither one of them have a CLUE in terms of how much time, money, and effort goes into raising another human being. She does very little around the house, so I think he'd end up taking care of the baby at all hours. Neither one of them make a lot of money, so I don't think that she could be a SAHM and them still afford their house payment. Anyways...my parents ARE starting to see the light, that's for sure. They've made several comments to him on the wedding, on his lack of involvement, and him owning his own set of cajones and standing up to his wife to be.
My mom even said, "I guess that's what I get for raising him the way I did. Should have taught him to stand up for himself more."

Me ---->

i'm late...i just went through this whole thread....

wile e NOW i understand why you say my ex was a GP. he worked so that wasn't his issue but his mom definitely thought he was the best thing since sliced bread. he told me his mom calls him her "#1" when we were beginning to date. i thought it was odd but now i see he expects to be everybody's #1 ALL the time in every situation...and if that isn't constantly reaffirmed he gets funky!! oh well....he's my ex now so not my problem anymore.

re: the earlier post about lisa kudrow referring to her child as a god/superhuma...that is weird and a detriment to the child for sure....

I almost bought Tinkerbell tonight. I'll probably go back to the store tomorrow & get it. What was I thinking?

Is it possible to have a GP in a family of three brothers? My SO is one of three boys and he is the youngest. Middle brother is the darling of the family it seems. Every time he needs something, mommy and daddy are right there to buy it for him. Hell, they pretty much bought him a 600k house. They put up the Down payment from their retirement savings and have given him EVERYTHING he needs for it (Furniture, Lawn mower, kitchen items). I'm surprised they aren't over their to wipe his as* sometimes. We live about 3 miles from him and he is CONSTANTLY over our house, at the suggestion of Mommy and Daddy, "borrowing" things (lawn fertilizer, screw driver sets, other tools) that he could easily and SHOULD buy himself. It's infuriating. And no, it's not because I want their parents money/gifts too. It's because I fear the middle brother will never learn to do anything for himself and constantly take everything for granted. If he lost his job, I'm sure mommy and daddy would say "OH GO LIVE WITH SYDNEY and BABY BROTHER. THEY WON'T MIND." HAH! Not gonna happen. /rant

My SIL is pregnant.

ETA: GP having kids might be odd. My parents swore that they wouldn't baby sit MY kids all time, weren't going to retire and then end up taking care of their grandkids and junk. Will be interesting to see if this is true for his kids as well.

Naw, not a shotgun wedding, they are newly pregnant and wedding was in November.

My mom was talking about her retirement in two years and I flat out said, "Ah, so you will be able to babysit their kids while they don't have to pay for day care and all of that." She said, 'No way. We want to travel."

If anything, one of my dad's closest friends is pretty much "raising" his grandchildren so the parents don't pay for child care - so much that the guy went out and bought a mini van and his own sets of car seats. My dad has seen what that's done to this guy...I mean, in your 60s and raising kids all over again? My dad is pretty adamant that this is NOT going to be their life after she retires. He retired about 4 years ago, and offered to watch Roo when I was SOL for child care...but even then, he had a time limit for me. Luckily, something came up and dad didn't have to do it.

My brother is actually scared ****less. They are upside down in their house. She works for the same company I do, but she doens't make much, she's in customer service. He's been worried about getting laid off for a few months now...when he talked to me about being worried, I said, 'You knew that she went off of birth control in January.' So, he knew what was going on and what she was doing.

He's not being very nice to her, either. Telling her that she's lazy, needs to help out more, etc. I will say, that yes, she is a little on the lazy side sometimes, and LOVES to spend money. So, we will see how all of this goes. He used to brag about not having kids and being able to spend more at birthdays and Christmas (esp. when it came to buying stuff for our parents), so that part will be interesting too.

I think it will be good for them, but very frightening. I have told them for a LONG time that kids aren't cheap. She wants to be a SAHM, too...and he's pretty much said that he doesn't even MAKE their house payment on his own salary, so it's pretty impossible for her. Not sure what they will do about child care.

If by interesting, you meant stupid, insane and maddening..yes, yes, very interesting! Sometimes I just want to shake their mom and say "THIS ISN'T HELPING. STOP GIVING HIM THINGS." She won't listen though.

Thank you Wile, fascinating thread. Oooh vent time. This is great I have so many experiences with Golden Penises in my family. There is my 56 year old uncle who still lives at home and has never cooked, cleaned or washed anything in his life. He is the most disgusting slob, obese, always stuffing hus mouth, talking over others, no manners etc. And yes he has a mental illness but many people with mental illnesses go on to live happy productive fulfilling lives. If there is no one there that lets them give up on life and does everything for them like a baby. I know it started early in life with my great grandpa (my mother and uncles grandpa) who considered boys more valuable than girls. My mom was told the story of how when my uncle cried as a baby my grandpa would tell the womenfolk "to go get that child, he needs something". When my mom cried he would yell "someone shut her up". Then it continued for the rest of his life.

Oh but whenever I would visit I was expected to immediately get to cleaning. Which I don't really have a problem with in and off itself but it's annoying when there is a grown man who is expected to do nothing but sit on his butt all day and eat. Unfortunately recently his schizophrenia worsened and in a delusion he decided it would be a good idea to beat up my 80 year old grandpa and grandma. They finally were forced to put him in a center. It could have been an amazing opportunity but I already knew my enabling grandma wasn't going to be able to see how important it was for them to get away from each other. He was doing better, he was back on his meds, the man he was with made him clean up after himself and let R know he couldn't get away with the things he got away with at home. But sure enough, Grandma found some excuse to make him leave and come home where she can dote on him. Her bruises and broken bones still haven't healed completely.

Then there is my dad. My my where do I start. I wrote some about him in another thread. My mom has inherited my mother's blind spot for men. He has stolen countless thousands from my mom over the years to support his habit. I notice I hold the honor of the first person whose GP is their parent. It's pretty much like he is my brother though, the way he competes with me for my mom's attention. Nobody should have to compete with their own father. As someone else posted if me and my mom have something planned D always manages to need a ride and always at the last minute. Restuarants, movies and his plans always trump ours. And she will be completely baffled when I point out that she puts him first. "Where are you getting this from?" And when I came up with a solution, just go on my own, she gets all hurt that being starving I don't want to wait another hour to go eat while she gives D a ride. My mom has blamed me when D would steal something from me (you should have locked your door). He is not a GP in that mom doesn't see his wrongs, she even knows vaguely that their relationship is unhealthy, she doesn't even like him, but he still has a weird hold over her. It's a sad day when you wake up and realize you are more mature than your father. After everything he has put us through, the list would be too long I once heard him say "Why is everyone so mean to me?"

Doesn't sound so bad to me. This is something I'm greatly looking forward to...babysitting my grandchildren. It's a huge gift that I can give my kids/grandkids that won't cost me much, plus I'll get to imprint/spend-lots-of-time-with them. Win/win.

My parents never watched my kids much. Or spent much time with them. They "did their time" and wanted to travel, be free, etc. As a result, they aren't close to any of their 10 grandchildren. Now my parents sit in their retirement home 2,000 miles away in FL and wonder why no one wants to visit them.
