My son was 19 when he married a white girl..other than the color difference, another interesting thing about them that she is 8 inches taller barefoot than he is. (lol) my daughter in law Lisa works at a popular retail stire while my son homeschools their two daughters. It too them time to learn aout the natural looks and stares given to them simply because of their color differences. They also had to adjust because Lisa works full time or more and makes all the money. Ten years have gone by since they have been married, and sometimes when my daughter in alw and i are alone she complains to me about me not showing my son how to cook or clean. I always laughed it off, but for the past thre weeks or so, she has really started get on my nerves with her complaining about ehr coming home and having to do all the cookign and cleaning and such while my son stays home with the kids. It has really gotten on my nerves and has almost made me wonder whethe ri should even hang with her. What makes it so bad is that they live right across the street from me. I can always see and hear what they are doing. About three nights ago, they argued and such and I heard my Lisa shout a racial slur towards my son, and yes, my son responded by striking her. After a few mintes she wlaked across the street and banged on my door and demnaded tobe let in so she could spend the night. My response to her was to tell her that she must face her problems and by me letting her in, it woudl only work to sustain their (actually her) idiotic pattern of behavior. I told her to go back to my son and basicaly, 'face the music.' Did I do the right thing?
