Don’t know why, but my entire post didn’t post. I’ve been posting via email, and the following was missing from my last post:
I think the longer my sister has been married to my asshole brother-in-law, the more she’s become a bit of an asshole herself.
Or maybe I’m the one who’s being an asshole?
So, when we treat our parents for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, my parents think it’s only fair that my sister and I split the bill in such a way that the Sister pays out more — otherwise, if we split the bill evenly, it’d be like I was treating not only my parents but my brother-in-law as well for a dinner that was meant in honour of one of our parents.
My sister thinks this is "bullshit." (Her words.)
I find that, the longer she’s been married to the asshole brother-in-law, the more small-minded, stingy, and cheap she has become.
She’s also super sensitive to his moods and will do anything to avoid getting him angry — including all sorts of pre-emptive things that just go overboard.
Like, she’ll assume that he’s deathly bored having to come over to visit the parents, so she never visits unless she absolutely has to. And then, when she comes over, she likes to come as close to a meal-time as possible, eat, and then leave immediately afterwards.
She’s become a jerk.
Anyways…in other stuff…
So, I came across this tidbit online — the source being Glamour magazine, of all things — about how sociologists at the University of Iowa have discovered that women who had sex before the age of 16 were more likely to get divorced than those who had waited until after turning 16.
So…does that mean that, if I ever manage to find someone to marry and settle down with, I won’t wind up getting divorced?
