I would NOT take that approach. Try to have active times together. Tell her you are on a new eating regimen that is really helping. Ask her if she'd like to do this together as a couple. Emphasize teamwork.
You are absolutely right that he should have told you!! This is a trust issue. That being said, don't let his other child be the victim of your husband's lack of common sense. It certainly is a shock. You two very much need professional help.
If she's 18 or older, you don't have much leverage. Keep talking to her. Also explain that if she really has feelings for this guy, she is risking his whole career. You may consider talking "off the record" with the dean of her college or a counselor. They will be able to listen but not respond since FERPA (laws protecting people's rights) would be in effect.
You absolutely get professional help. This is an issue that your son will have to deal with at some point in the future. She had to know, so this means it's also a huge trust issue that will need a lot of work if you choose to save your marriage.
Unfortunately, there is a much higher risk, especially with both parents drinking heavily. Fortunately, it's not an automatic. If he is given the right "tools," he does not have to repeat the pattern. Talk to him honestly about this.
Encourage her to talk to HR. I can understand why you would want to confront him, but it's best that she learn to stand up for herself. It's important for her future to feel empowered.
Sometimes marriages get off track. Many people get married and then neglect to keep putting energy and effort into the relationship. If it's not energized it will wither and die. Try not to let that happen. Get some couples' counseling.
He is enabling their behavior by not confronting them. It's your place, too. You should not have to tolerate anyone's criticism when they are guests in your home. If he won't confront them with you, do it yourself in a respectful fashion.
Your gf obviously cares about you. Evidently, she cares more about you than you do. You two are not on the same page when it comes to caring about each other. Listen to her and get some help with this. A qualified nutritionist and maybe even a psychologist would be the best way to approach this.
A suggestion- Have him keep a journal of your behaviors for about two months, not just during your period. Preferably, take him with you to a consultation with your GYN. At a minimum, take his journal. It will highlight the extreme differences. PMS is a real thing, not just something to joke about.
I would not approach her alone. In the same way that an intervention is used with an addict, it should be used in this situation. Your sister may be so all consumed with the stress of the wedding and marriage that she literally cannot see what she is doing.
If you aren't ready to make a decision, don't. It may be that you are bisexual. Just go with the flow. Sometimes it takes people a long time to figure themselves out. Be kind to yourself, and don't rush to judgment.
You get what you pay for. If you're going to use them, don't go cheap. The one's that have been around the longest are the most reliable. I personally think it's a good idea to do your "due diligence" when you're getting serious with someone.
Your gf is a binge alcoholic. Tell her that you love her and are very worried about her health. Volunteer to go with her to get some help for herself. She needs all the support you can give her, as well as from others.
Don't get carried away in your dreams! It just could mean she's being polite and friendly. Let's start with that. DON'T make any assumptions.
Marriage is one of the biggest events in one's life, and, as a result, is also one of the most stressful. As a psychologist, I often work with couples BEFORE they get married to help avoid pitfalls and stress. Try it.
As with the previous answer, get rid of them. NEVER allow someone to disrespect you. No one deserves to be treated that way.
Drop them like a hot potato. That's not something a real friend does. Don't allow anyone to treat you that way.
You simply say that your father will be walking you down the aisle and that you would love for her to do that, too, but the choice is her. If she's a good mom, she'll put your needs on this special day ahead of her ego. Otherwise, just go down the aisle with your father.
Got a mirror???????? Think about it.
There are lots of ways to handle this, but the one that would be the classiest would be to say nothing and just smile. Drives 'em nuts. Zealots, regardless of what religion, are a pain in the ass!
In one word, yes. If she's had it for that long, she probably doesn't give it much thought. Plus, if you are just bf & gf, why do you need to know? As she said, she didn't hide it.
Traditionally, a guy should open the door, but there's nothing wrong nowadays with a woman opening the door (jump right in here, Ladies). I am old-fashioned (ok, old), but I still like opening the doors, really for anyone.
Your parents did not do a good job of investigating the effects on the family. In my opinion, they are selfish. I know that's judgmental, but there is a responsibility to children. The proper way to have handled it would have been with a therapist. You should probably see one now.
You are not being too harsh, but, yes, a lot of guys have trouble with this. If a guy has a woman as a significant other, he should be informed and used to a menstrual cycle. It's a matter of education. Guys generally are not taught about it, so they are clueless.
