Spend It While You’re Young

Dear Frankly,

My wealthy in-laws keep giving us money to add on to our house. I appreciate their offers, but feel as an adult, both my husband and I should be able to support ourselves and our two children. My husband expects them to pay for a variety of things he wants and depends on them to bail him out. I would rather not accept their money (knowing that if we truly had a crisis, they could be a possible resource). My husband and I usually butt heads over this. Should I graciously accept their offer and let it go? Or should I stick to my guns and encourage my husband to be a responsible, independent adult??

Dear Spoiled,

Tell your hubby to spend his inheritance while he’s young. It or he may not be around later.

Dear Frankly,

I’m in love with a man who has been my friend for the past 5 years. He is a great person and we are close. Since he likes being single and I am scared of rejection, I have always felt pretty safe not having to say anything to him about how I feel. I have been driving myself crazy because I want to be in a relationship with him and he just had a one-nightstand. He suggested we should go on a trip together soon. I respect, love, honor and cherish this man as my friend and I want more. But, I don’t want our friendship to end or change. What should I do?

Frustrated Friend

Dear Frustrated,

If he was the one who told you about the one-night-stand, he does see you as a friend, pal, buddy, amigo. I’d ask him if he is bringing a date on your trip.
