Last week I was made aware that my older cousin - Jake [32M] - convinced my grandmother to gift him $150,000 AUD for a down payment on a property. I was not okay with this. My grandmother is not a wealthy individual by any means. She's just an 77 year old lady who has worked and saved hard her whole life. The $150,000 is her life savings, and gifting it to Jake will severely impact her quality of life.
I sat down with my grandmother to find out what transpired. Jake went to my grandmother asking her to help him move out of his parents' home. His relationship with his parents is deteriorating, which in turn is impacting his mental health. He thinks his own home will help with his mental health.
Feeling sorry for Jake, my grandmother agreed. She reasoned that Jake is so 'behind' (for a lack of a better term) in life relative to her other grandchildren that she is hoping this gift will help him catch up. Her plan is to rely on pension payments to live out her retirement. My grandmothe... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m currently 31 weeks pregnant with my first child- a little girl! I’ve known for years what I want to name my child. The first name has sentimental meaning for me, and my husband and I chose the second name together. We’ve planned the name for years- when we were dating and talking about the future, one of the things we always said was that our firstborn would have this name. It’s gender neutral, so it didn’t matter if it was a girl or a boy.
As soon as we found out I was pregnant, we started referring to the baby by name. Because we’ve had this name in mind for so many years, our whole family knows the name and the meaning behind it. We’ve already started decorating the nursery with little items that have the name or initials on them. There’s basically been no question that this would be our child’s name.
My cousin’s wife gave birth two weeks ago. They had refused to tell anyone what name(s) they were thinking about during the pregnancy, which is fine. But the name that... keep reading on reddit ➡
Yes I'm aware that my cousin posted here and oh the irony as i showed her this sub last year, but I really don't care if she sees this, maybe it'll hammer the point home. And I doubt she will see it as they are currently on their pre wedding honeymoon, legit didn't even know those were a thing. So Amy is getting married, she has a blue and green and purple theme for the wedding. People are supposed to wear these colours including the moh and the bridesmaids. What irked me about that post was that my hair is NOT FLAMING MERIDA RED. maybe slightly more [ginger] (https://ibb.co/w4yrCCk) in low light This whole thing is completely insane to me and I have no idea where it has come from.

I’m a girl of Indian heritage who was born in the states, and very unusually, my parents were born in the USA also. We are about as American as it gets, and my mom and dad have very very little cultural ties back home to India. They are openly atheist, have white collar jobs and so their mannerisms, lifestyles, values, are all more american than Indian.
Now they speak ‘conversational’ Hindi, just enough to get by, but me and my siblings basically only know how to count from 1-10 and maaaybe the names of a few animals. We’ve never learnt the language whether your opinion on that is good or bad, it just is what it is. We were only spoken to in English growing up.

That was two years ago, but he still hasn’t finished his sentence
There have been multiple times where I caught my cousin touching/trying to touch me in innapropriate places while I'm sleeping. The first time it happened was on my sister's 18th birthday party. I slept earlier than usual and I didn't know that my cousins stayed at our house even after the party and some of them slept on my room(me and my sister shares this room) and in the bed I was sleeping in. This happens a lot and it's normal since we're asians and we grew up with together but this is the first time I've experienced sexual harassment and inappropriateness from my cousin.
While I was sleeping I felt someone trying to move the pillow I was hugging to touch my breast and the other hand groping my ass. I won't go into further detail but while this was happening, I don't know if I should do anything and I didn't even know who was doing it because I just froze. He only stopped when one of my older cousin woke up to pee outside.

A lot has happened in the last 24 hours. I don't know where to start but here it is. This is going to be long. First of all, I'm really really sorry guys. You're not going to like what you read. I received so much support here on reddit but unfortunately, this was not the case in real life. I'm sorry if I have disappointed anyone.
The first person I talked to about this was my mom. I told her what happened and she did NOT take it well. She didn't understand what I was saying. She said I probably misunderstood his intentions. She said she had told him to keep an eye on me and that she was sorry if it led to me being uncomfortable but he's a nice person. She said the smoothie story was far-fetched. I'm overthinking. Being paranoid etc. She said she trusts him and even though the thigh touching was creepy, NOTHING happened. In the end, I was fine. If he really wanted... keep reading on reddit ➡
This happened two days ago. I was visiting my parents who live eight hours away and that happened to be the same time my cousin was also in town for something. He was staying with my parents and I was surprised because I haven't seen him in like ten years. I only saw him maybe two times when I was young. We are not close at all but I didn't really mind that he was there.
My cousin is married with two kids, and he was really polite and kind and I never doubted him for one second. He looked like a really happy guy, but two days ago my parents went out and we were alone in the house at night. We had dinner and talked for a while. After that I went to bed.
This is where it gets weird. He was reluctant to let me go. We were talking about cooking skills and bickering. He said he wanted to make me a bedtime smoothie to show off his cooking skills. I was full already and I declined the offer. He insisted I wait for him to make it but I said no and went to sleep. After maybe 15 minutes, he c... keep reading on reddit ➡
i’m a 19 year old student, i don’t have a lot of debt, but i can’t be throwing my money around like i’m rich. i have a cousin (26) her wedding is on sunday, we’re not really close, but we do have an okay relationship.
she made an announcement this week saying that she’ll be charging 50 dollars for every guest who’s coming. she said that they can venmo her the money so there won’t be no problems and everyone who paid will be added onto the “exclusive guest list” which basically means you won’t have to wait in line while other guests pay.
once i read this, i was shocked. i responded asking why and she said she wanted to get the money she spent on her special day back. i told her i wouldn’t be able to come because this was outrageous and that i wish her well on her special day. she contacted my aunt and my aunt called me cheap and rude. my parents offered to pay for my entry, but i refused.
now everyone thinks i’m being ridiculous and cheap, AITA?

My cousin wanted to join the Marines after my uncle (his father) enlisted there for 20 years. After his service, he was discharged honourably and worked as a football coach. My cousin was discouraged by my uncle because of the things he saw in Iraq.
Last week, my cousin posted a picture to Facebook and Instagram talking about how he enlisted in the Marines while wearing the uniform that my uncle owned. In the comment section, people were praising him and also sending small presents like gift cards to thank him for his service. I forgot to mention how my cousin thinks that he is better than everyone else and how he can do whatever he wants. The worst part is that our Grandfather was a Marine who fought in the Tet offensive and a quarter of his platoon died. He is basically pretending that he is like them.
I knew my uncle was going to be pissed off because he hates people who use stolen valor and so do I. Because of that, I called him up and spoke to him and told him what my cousin was... keep reading on reddit ➡
My grandma and mom asked if they could host a party at my place which happened yesterday. The reason why they asked for my place is because it’s centrally located to all my family members and it’s a home that’s been in the family for generations (I inherited it) so everybody is familiar with it.
Now I have an old girl, Sierra, and she’s 11 years old. She has arthritis and one really bad hip, but she’s a golden so obviously she wants to be right in everybody’s business and see what’s going on even though she can’t really walk around without being in pain anymore.
I got her a really huge armchair from goodwill and it’s basically super wide so she can comfortably sit on it. It’s covered in dog hair and scratches and slobber and she loves it.

Some quick back story -- I was raised in an affluent/educated urban area, but all of my Mom's extended family are super country and live on farms. Most of my cousins are home schooled, but I always assumed this was just because the school systems suck there (they do suck). I enjoyed going to see my Grandparents cause I got to play with my cousins (only child) and spend time outside on the farm. We would mostly just drive down there for holidays or during the summer.
On one of my visits to Grandma's, our uncle took me and my little cousin to a big gun show/flea market type thing.

So my cousin (26F) has been trying to get engaged for the past 5 years with her now fiancé(26M). I (21F) have been with my now fiancé (23M) for about 2 years now and pretty much new from the start that we were going to get married. We both got engaged relatively at the same time and were deciding our wedding dates. She chose September and I was thinking about doing December but hadn’t made any hard set plans.
I then realized it would be much more convenient to have my wedding reception in my family’s backyard during the summer so my fiancé and I decided we should do the wedding in August/summer time.
My aunt FLIPPED out! She went on about how its weird for our weddings to be so close together and how people will be thinking of my wedding when they attend hers (I should note my cousin is having a $25k+ wedding and I’m having like a $5k wedding) and how with my wedding before my cousin it would take away from “our spotlight”(yeah she said our!

So this all started about 3 years ago. My Cousin who lives in Arizona always had a desire to have professional nude photos taken. She thought it'd be nice to have something for her husband to look at from when she was in her prime as they aged together. Also I think it kinda turned her on.
However my Cousin had NO desire to have those photos publicly published.
After a few years of chewing on this idea, she decided she was going do it. She went out looking for a photographer. She had a tight budget and ended up going with this one man who quoted her $300 for a 1 hour photo shoot, he didn't mind taking nude pictures of her.
However she asked him if he had any agreement or something that would keep those photos confidential, he said he did not, she asked him if she wrote up an agreement basically stating the photos he takes of her cannot be saved on any of his devices, and the SD card needs to be given to her and that she should be the only person with a copy of the photos and if he'... keep reading on reddit ➡
My 22 f cousin Milly 28 f is getting married in 2 month's time.
Milly has brown hair to around the middle of her back but wanted her hair longer for her wedding day. She was originally going to use clip in extensions but as I'm currently training to be a hair dresser I advised something longer term so she has them for her honeymoon.
Milly agreed this was a good idea, the only setback was the cost, after doing some research i decided nano extensions would be best and found a local salon but they charged $1450 !!
So as I already have alot of hair knowledge I put this offer to Milly. I said I would order some extensions offline and fit them for her for half the cost of the salon, I found some gorgeous extensions that cost $600 so that's what we did.
So 2 days ago the hair arrived, Milly was ecstatic the hair was fantastic quality and the exact same that the salon uses called beauty works.

I had my family over for dinner a few nights ago and wanted to prepare something nice since I really love cooking. This is the first time we’ve all gotten together since Christmas, and my cousin let me me know in advance that she went vegan at the start of January as one of her New Year’s resolutions. It’s something she’s talked about doing for a while, but she didn't make the jump until recently. I told her I’d make sure there was food for her.
One of my best friends got me a nice set of ramekins as a Christmas gift, and I decided to test them out by making some smoked salmon souffles for dinner. I was a little nervous because I had never tried out this recipe before, but they turned out great. I also made a devil’s chocolate cake for dessert.
For the side dish, I put together a salad with lettuce, arugula, mixed berries, and a strawberry balsamic vinaigrette. It was really tasty, and I thought it would be a good idea to make enough so that everyone could have it as a side and my c... keep reading on reddit ➡
A month or so ago my(19f) cousin and his girlfriend(both 30) announced that they are expecting a child. A week ago they announced the gender of the baby- it's a girl!
Two days ago my cousin texted me that he and his girlfriend want to meet up with me which was very unusual because they live two hours away.
They wanted to meet at a cafe for coffee, so yesterday we met up in the afternoon. The first half hour were just casual catching up and when the conversation shifted towards the pregnancy, they got kind of nervous.
They explained to me that they are planning on naming their child like me but they wanted to ask me if i was okay with it first.

This happened Friday/yesterday and I feel the urgent need to share it with somebody – so,probably you folks will like it. I met the love of my life in 2013 at a board game evening with some friends from university. We first operated greatly together while playing Risk – until she betrayed me in the worst possible moment. When she afterwards successfully argued to get me killed in Werewolfes for three times in a row, I just knew that she is the right one. After finishing our studies, we moved in together and decided to get married last year. Now it's important to note that I'm from the upper north of our country while she is from the south. Also, both families are kinda shattered between several federal states so occassions to meet each others ectended family are few and far between and our parents only met each other 2 times before our wedding.

Chinese New Year is almost here which means there are a lot more family dinners. My family is responsible for hosting all these dinners because we have the bigger house which means we're also responsible for cooking everything.. Every dinner, we have about 20-ish people over and nobody has any allergies or diet restrictions except for one cousin. I don't know her all that well at all and I don't have her on Facebook or any way to contact her. I only thought that she is vegetarian because that's what my aunt told me. She said my cousin eats noodles made from eggs and has no issue with eating vegetable dishes with animal products in it so I thought for sure she's not a vegan since they're against ALL animal products.
My parents were responsible for cooking various dishes for all 20 family members and I was responsible for making the vegetarian dish. I thought it was pretty silly because a lot of Chinese dishes are already vegetarian and she can just eat those but my parents said she s... keep reading on reddit ➡
It's my 32 year old cousin's birthday today and my family has been pressuring her for kids since she got married. The pressure started on her wedding day, literally. She revealed no plans to our family to even have children. The present she gets for her birthday? Baby clothes. With the assumption that she will have kids, my mother gifted her several outfits for her non-existent children. She laughed it off nervously while everyone around her laughed and then there was the sneaky "guess you're gonna have to put those to use now!"
I just felt so bad for her. The pressure knowing that my mother spent money to bingo her is appalling. This is her birthday. Could have bought her a bottle of high end alcohol or something, but nope. Had to take the opportunity to pressure her into breeding. That's my baby-obsessed mom.
So this happened last month. Me (18f) and my cousin (18f) both applied to the same highly prestigious university, it's the best in the UK & one of the best in the world. I'm not saying that to gloat about the fact I got in but because it explains why going there is a much bigger deal than any other uni. It might also be important to mention that our dad's are brothers and do not get on very well and our grandparents are closer to my dad.
We both applied. She got rejected. I got in. The next week, we were at our grandparents and she seemed visibly upset with me. I let this slide, the uni had been her dream for far longer than it had been mine. Throughout the day, her and her parents kept rolling their eyes whenever my acceptance got mentioned. Eventually over dinner, my grandfather gave a toast to my acceptance to the uni AND her acceptance to her second choice uni.
At this point, she ran out crying and I followed her because even though we're not close I wanted to see if she's o... keep reading on reddit ➡

According to Marc Stein:
> NBA rules allow a player waived when injured to continue rehabbing with that team. DeMarcus Cousins is unlikely to be formally released by the Lakers until Sunday ... and is expected to be granted access to keep using Laker facilities in his comeback from an ACL tear if needed
Sounds like a mutual agreement to let Cousins get his bag, rehab with Lakers, and Lakers get a needed versatile bench player who can contribute for them now.
Tldr; my cousin said she wished I never had my kid because she doesn't approve and I want to cut her out of my life but idk if I'm overreacting.
So basically the title. I've been simmering on where to post this for a while and after perusing childfree and beyondthebump, I landed here. I don't use reddit much so let me know if there's a better place.
My cousin and I were close growing up. There were a few times I would spend the night and we got along just fine. But then my mom and my uncle had a huge fight and we stopped being friends.

He (cousin) is a flat earther. He also thinks that space isn't real and the stars are projected onto a screen or something.
I want to get him a globe. I think it would be fucking hilarious. My friends all think it would be fucking hilarious. My husband says it's up to me. I haven't asked my in laws what they think yet, they will probably tell me no because they are the type of people to never rock the boat. Cousin will be sooooooo pissed, but I think it would be incredibly worth it.
The rest of the in laws are engineers and other sciencey types, this cousin is just a "conspiritard" who listens to way too much Alex Jones.
I think that a getting him a globe would just be a bit of harmless fun, but if this is too harsh, a friend of mine also suggested that I get a globe for my husband and just make sure that cousin is present when husband opens it.

So, I've have a cousin I was close with through most of my childhood, and some of college. It wasn't like we had a falling out it's just as we got older life got tougher for us to spend as much time together as when we were younger. Fast-forward. She's married and has 3 kids. And, a week or so ago her youngest who was dealing with a lot of health issues since birth sadly passed away.
The funeral was a week ago and my family lives literally all over the country. It's pretty rare to get the extended family together like this. The event is terrible, but a lot of people took solace of being able to have everyone together. So, my husband and I have been trying for eight months to get pregnant and the morning of hopping on the plane I took a pregnancy test. Positive.

A little back story here, Becca’s(23F) dad died almost 3 years ago. This is when she became friends with “Jer” (40M) and he was still committed to his wife. Even then they had in my eyes, an inappropriate relationship. Driving around town at like 12-3AM; meanwhile his wife was at home with the kids (both under 5) Eventually, Becca starts sleeping with Jer. And he tells her he’s going to leave his wife. It’s been almost 8 or 9 months now, they still live together but Becca insists they’re getting a divorce. Becca got pregnant and miscarries. Lately Becca and Jer have been on a rough patch because he’s not giving her as much attention anymore as he used to.
Here we are today. I showed Becca a picture of the guy I’m seeing, and she immediately called him a douche because his shirt was a v-neck and said she doesn’t like people I like. She never even asked what he was like. Sensing this was less about the guy I’m seeing and more of a bitter projection of how she’s feeling insecure.

Hi. First time poster here. I don’t have a nickname for my FMIL yet. I didn’t even expect to make this, but I’m upset and I need to type this out.
My cousin committed suicide in a traumatic way last week. My (nuclear) family was one of the first groups of people to find out. He had been having some mental health issues as of late, but we all thought he was doing better. We have started to understand that he was experiencing psychotic episodes with paranoid delusions, but doing his best to hide them. He left behind his wife and his amazing 16 and 19 year old daughters.
To say that this has shattered my family is an understatement. We are a tight-knit family and reeling. My aunt and uncle, his parents, are understandably beside themselves.
His funeral was yesterday. His younger daughter performed his eulogy. Heartbreaking does not describe.
Today, my fiancé was talking to my FMIL on the phone. I detest her. There are so... keep reading on reddit ➡

About once a year, I go to visit family (mainly cousins) and stay with them for around two weeks, we all take time off work during this. Three or four years ago, we had the idea to buy some boardgames and play them when I come over for the annual visit. Well, it was a massive success and really fun. So much so that we've done it every year since then and that's what we spend the vast majority of our time doing when I'm there. I love boardgames and they of course, are great for social interaction. Rather than passively sitting there watching movies etc. We are, instead, sitting around the gaming table, talking, laughing and playing boardgames. Some stand out boardgames for us have been Jamaica, Sheriff of Nottingham, Shadows over Camelot, Resistance: Avalon, TIME Stories and City of Horror to name a few. In fact, City of Horror is one of our favourite boardgames ever, it's brilliant and great at what it does.

After seeing so many comments talking about how crazy my family seemed, I finally decided to say my peace and move on.
I went through months of texts between me and my cousin saying she was gonna off herself because of her mom, that she had diagnosed disorders (She does not.) and that her parents refused to get her help, and even some of her saying all my grandma does is cause issues and drag on family drama lmfao. There's a LOT more, but that sums up some of the more important ones.
