- Wedding: October 2010
So, without getting into too many details, I need some help from the hive. I have two biological sisters, an older sister JMC and a younger sister JAC. I grew up with them until about 15 years old, when they both moved to another provice. We talk often, and have a good relationship. Both of them have two children each. Older sister doesnt work, uses government money to live, has various boyfriends, and doesnt have custody of either of her girls (they live with their dads, age 6 & 4). Younger sister hasnt worked in years, also has had various boyfriends in past, 2 kids age 2 and 3 months but has a consistent Boyfriend or Best Friend for past 1.5 years. Trying to get her life back on track. Younger sister is a bridesmaid… 3 neices are all in wedding party.
Older sister calls, her Boyfriend or Best Friend got fired. They have no money. Apparently a friend from their World of Warcraft game said they will send her the money to come to the wedding with the kids, but can’t send it until a couple weeks before the wedding. My sister has a bad track with money…
Younger sister will get her baby bonus check on Aug 20, for back pay on my nephew, approximately $1200. She is generally good for money.
Via rail is having a big sale, that would make the tickets for them to come here much cheaper slae is only on for 2 more days!! It would save 400 for younger sister, and 500 for older sister. The total for all tickets would come to 1600. They have asked me to pay for the tickets, and they will pay me back.
WHAT DO I DO?!?! I love my sisters, and want them here, but am frustrated by my older sisters lack of ANYTHING, but want my neices here. Chances are that I will never get back the 900 for her tickets. Younger sister would be good for it, and I trust her to send me the money when she can. I don’t think it’s fair to buy tickets KNOWING my older sister will probably never pay me back, and have younger sister, who is at least trying to put herself on a good track, but don’t want to look like I’m rewarding my older sister for her bad decisions.
HELP!! What would you do? Just buy the tickets and hope to get the money back? Not pay for the tickets for either? Pay just for younger sister? HELP!
