BM is such a POS

DH figure that the reason BM dumped SD18 on us is because she got expensive.

BM pays no CS. BM has told SD18 that she won't contribute a dime to SD18's college expenses unless SD18 moves back to Louisiana, goes to a full university, and joins a sorority. Can you say, "living vicariously through your child"? I knew you could!

SD18 is pretty disgruntled by this. BM sends her younger child to private school at a cost of $3500/year, but can't handle 1/3 community college tuition at less than $1500/year. It just reinforces that SD18 is only worthwhile to BM as long as SD18 is her little puppet.

The woman is f-ing useless. DH and I will get SD18 through college (provided she work at it and make the grades) and it will reflect on US, not BM.

The kid is currently pulling Ds in at least two classes. There is no way in hell we are shelling out ~$3-5k for our 1/3 share of a single semester in a 4-year school. The community college in integrated into the state university system, less than $9k in tuition transfers two full years guaranteed.

While we want to offer the opportunity for higher education to her, we're not about to sacrifice our retirement for something that is not a sure thing.

Her money, her choice indeed - if it weren't for the fact that in doing so she's hurting the only innocent party in this mess, I wouldn't give a rat's ass.

All she cares about is being able to brag that HER DAUGHTER is going to LSU and is in a sorority, see, we're HIGH CLASS now! Screw actually getting an education or doing it in a way that won't accumulate a mortgage's-worth of debt.

Our plan gets the kid a BA with no loans owed, and a total financial commitment from her mother that is less than what she has and does spend on her (failing school, whiny, obese video game addict) precious prince in a single year. If she can't see that, she's flat stupid and spiteful.

It is gross that joining a sorority is her priority! Sounds like a crazy witch that just needs to brag away about her kid. I honestly feel sorry for her kids. That is not what college is for, its to get your education everything else is just extra, rolling my eyes!
