My husband grew up never wanting anything. His parents had his room stocked with guitars/amps, a computer, a state of the art stereo system, a tv, etc. He went through 3 cars before we got married (at 19).
Now that we are adults, he keeps turning to them when something happens and they keep fixing stuff for us. I don't want to sound ungrateful, I'm not..it's just..I feel like we're still teenagers. Why won't they let us be adults?
Recent examples all related to a vehicle:
1) DH complains about being a 1 car family, parents buy him a truck.
2) Truck breaks down and we can't afford to fix it just yet. He calls his parents and they pay to have it fixed.
3) He has a flat tire, I tell him we get paid THE NEXT DAY and he can wait. He calls his parents and they pay for 2 new tires.
4) Today he was driving home from AZ to TX. His truck dies. He gets towed and finds out it's the head or the gasket. Big $$ we can't afford right now. His dad is going to pick him up and tow the truck home tomorrow/Friday. I said we would save the money up to get it fixed in a few months and his dad says they're paying.
They won't let us pay them back and in the mean time I feel like crap! What can I do?
