I would tell my parents that either they can give me the adult freedoms I now have or I'm leaving and they can be homeless for all I care.

God I hate when I'm out at a club partying and the three year old I was talking to has to go home cause of his curfew. :/

The parents could have taken a mortgage out on the house for something expensive, like medical bills, or the child's schooling. Basically you get a mortgage is a loan from the bank, if you can't pay them back they'll take your house.

Exactly, people get home equity lines of credit, which is basically like a 2nd mortgage. The house is collateral.

Simple, buy the house your parents obviously cannot afford anymore and let them live-in to support you and your family.... and then you give them a curfew.

Agree with 160. I feel sad for you if your parents didn't do everything they could to help you and you don't feel they deserve the favor back.

If she has a curfew, I am surprised she is allowed to sleep in the same bed as her husband. Considering she is being treated like a twelve year old.

Probably to be treated with some respect, seeing as OP is an adult with a family and is nice enough to help out her parents this much? :)

It's not about being homeless, they could sell it and rent a cheaper place. The house they are in now is apparently larger than what they need - they wouldn't have found space for their daughter's family, otherwise.

They may have set the curfew so they wouldn't wake up with the door opening, I'm just wondering how they managed to not have finished paying the house for 3 generations . . .

This, exactly! I think OP should remind her parents that without her help they would have no place so they ought to chill out.

the thing that didnt escape my attention was that you stay at home all day looking online for a job to support your bankrupt family. But instead of working you would rather post rude comments on FML to make you feel better about the shitty life that you & your family have thanks Doc

Thanks for the uplifting comment, pooper. Now I'm going to go cry in my Lexus. Just FYI, the "Doc" in "DocBastard" isn't an exaggeration. Feel stupid now?

haha I almost stuck up for you doc and then I thought to myself 'whatever doc says will be so much more effective and funny.' so I left it alone and I'm so glad I did.

1) no respectable doctor would waste their time correcting and getting off on teens bad grammar 2) I'm sure u do have a Lexus its probably 15 yrs old with 10k still owed on it 3) I suggest that you get up from your parents basement, get in your Lexus & write yourself a prescription for a new life b/c u obviously hate yours. 4) sorry I'm late on child support

Pooper, your nickname is accurate even if your allegations are not. But your comments are quite funny, and I'm glad you're having fun making them. I certainly enjoy the laugh, so keep them coming. And if you're wondering about all the other stuff, I won't dignify it with a retort. All I'll tell you is that I love my wife, my daughter, and my life.

You can't say for sure the parents are at fault. Maybe they needed a loan to pay for medical bills or something. Regardless of fault, though, the OP isn't just bailing her family out; she's helping to protect her inheritance and part of her family's heritage. In the long run, that's got to be worth the hassle of setting some boundaries and fighting for more independence now.

they abviously couldnt afford helping with the mortgage and paying there own bills at their own house so they had to move in duh

*Sighs* Why does this site give me the impression that an overriding chunk of Americans are so overwhelmingly fixated on 'independence' and 'self sufficiency' that they have lost all sense of family or general social connectedness? Personally I think it's pretty dysfunctional to be unable to envisage ever helping out your parents pr living with them.

Reply

That's not true. They could have a mortgage on improvements they made to the home...because it's been in the family for generations.

Reply

people will take loans out with their house as collateral. probably what her parents did
