How to be shitty fucking parents 101 -
Step 1: Brainwash your children from their elementary school years by telling them all of the financial incentives for doing exactly as you say.
Step 2: When your kids grow up and realize you are ruining their lives and decide to make their own decisions, threaten to disown them completely.
I was on the phone with XFactor tonight when he accccccidentally let this tidbit slip...
XF: "I know the financial consequences for marrying you."
Elle: "Huh? What does that even mean?"
XF: "Well, since my brother and I were small kids, our parents would always say...whoever marries an Armenian will get the house when we die."
Elle: "You're fucking kidding me, right?"
XF: "No, I thought it was a joke but I am fully understanding that I'll get written out of the will by marrying you."
HOLY FUCKING SHIT.
This cannnnnnot be real life.
Talk about emotional and mental brainwashing/torture. These people are so fucked up I can't sleep right now.
XF is a trust fund kid (he would murder me for writing this) but he's been fortunate enough to not have to deal with things like student loans, etc. His families finances are none of this blogs business so I will leave it at that. The point is - how incredibly manipulative for them to do this to their kids.
God forbid you raise a child who is capable of making their own decisions.
God forbid you support them in said decisions.
That would just be way too damn normal for you ARMENIAN PSYCHOPATHS.
I truly feel bad for XF. The more I know about his family, the sadder I become.
The harder he works to get me back, the more I question if I want anything to do with these people.
No wonder he's been such a bitch about making a decision and sticking with it. His parents are threatening him in every possible way. The worst were the emails disowning him on Christmas but fuck, financially now too?
Luckily, he doesn't need their money BUT it's still such a low blow.
So for all you single, kid-less people reading -- this is a prime example of WHAT NOT TO DO.
I feel better for sharing that, now here's to trying to get some much needed sleep.
So thankful for my parents,
PS NO, I have not taken him back. NO I have not seen him. YES I am talking to him, NO that doesn't mean I am jumping in again. YES it is possible I will but only if a shitttttt ton of things change....intimacy, attention span, purchasing of ring, proposal in Paris...
aka don't get your panties in a bundle, we are nowhere close to that but he is seeing a therapist so that's a good start. Someone needs to talk through the damage these asshole parents have done and it can't be me anymore because I've put them in a coffin and hammered my final nails. I give no fucks about them or their opinion of me.
