Buying your non-bio a car?!
DH got almost nothing in the divorce - an old jeep, a old fishing boat and his tools. The boat and jeep don't even work. BM got the house and all the furniture, a newer car, then asked the judge to give her the boat three years after the agreement was signed and threw a fit about giving DH his tools. DH decided to get the jeep running and sell it. BM found out about this from a mutual acquintence and decided that DH should really give the jeep to her so that her nephew (not even related to DH) would need a car in a year. Really? He has a family with me now and I pay for almost everything, but she still thinks she has a right to make financial decisions/requests with him for kids that he has no legal or biological right too? Add to that, that the kid is so not all there. Like a 3 year old in a 15 year old body. The LAST person you would want driving. And in an open CJ6 jeep meant for occasional offroading. I can just see where this is going - next summer she'll be guilt tripping DH into buying this kid a car because then she won't have to get off her ass at all to drive them anywhere. The jeep is sold, but I am putting my foot down 100% on this. We've gotten stuck with her taxes from when they were married, all of the joint credit card debt, she is hell on wheels, but STILL has the nerve to ask for favors. If it was his actual bio son, I'd say we should come up with half for a car, but there is no f'ing way we are helping with a car for BM's relative. Am I the wierd one here?
