Her cleaning skills are masterful. I guess that's 33 years of being a homemaker. I have definitely suggested this before.

They met when she was 14/15 and married when she was 17. My grandfather died when she was 12. While I think she's a great woman, it's obvious that my dad plays somewhat of a fatherly role and I think she'd be lost without him.

We wouldn't co-sign on a financially responsible individuals loan. From my understanding he bought the car because it was a "good deal". But we all know it ain't a good deal if you don't need it.

Very much so. They encourage what they call "entrepreneurship". She really just knits generic items and sells a few. She's not turning any profit.
