Well I think your mother is the one who is the self-absorbed bitch for making that comment, and you should have told her so.
Sometimes parents know though seeing they spent a lot of time around their daughters. So it's FML if OPs mother is a bitch in general (always negative) or a YDI because maybe your mother is on to something. Best way to tell if you're self-absorbed is if you're unwilling to compromise with your husband, won't do anything that he wants to do but you don't (i.e. compromise) or you expect things that you yourself wouldn't feel the need to give to other people (love, compassion, money, etc).
Well, 20, I think the sarcasm in the post implies her mother probably always is a bitch. Doesn't mean the OP may not be, but the mother is still being a bitch first! You live in Romania, OP. Did your sister marry good ol' Drac? May explain why they'll never seperate.
Well, your mother could be wrong,OP. She is right in the sense that 1 in 2 marriages end in divorce but it might not be yours AND your sister's OR they both could end in divorce. Let me explain: Let's say there is A (OP's marriage), B (OP's sister's marriage), C and D (some random girl's marriage). C and D could end in divorce, leaving A and B to continue. Or A and B could end in divorce, leaving C and D to continue. OR A/B and C/D could end leaving A/B and C/D to continue. There are loads of possibilities.
Oh, the joy of statistics. I love them. And that's not necessarily how it works anyway. The real question is, did her marriage end in a divorce?
