My youngest son got married last June - we thought he was a bit young, but he's always been a determined kid. Anyway, he's 21 now, works as a driller 2 weeks away, one week home, and his wife is feeling ignored and 2nd rate to his job... So he showed up at the house Sunday with some clothes, his bikes, his gator. While both of us (hubby & I) feel that she'll get over it, and her parents sincerely WANT her to get over it, things are not heavenly right now. Any wise words of advice for either of them that I might pass along without getting between them?
Right now, they have an $800+/month mortgage on the farm they bought, a car loan for a new Tacoma (hers), a loan on a John Deere Gator, 5 alpacas, 8 chickens, 4 cows & a bull, 2 dogs, and her folks just bought the family homestead off her uncle so they (son& wife) could fix it up & live in it - it adjoins their farm, and would bring their acreage to over 250 acres. There's NO way he could get a local job which would even get near approaching their monthly loan payments... HELP! Anybody in Foo lived a life of continuous short term work related separations from your loved ones? Advice?
