Aren’t you the poster who complained endlessly about this SIL in a couple of judgement fuelled posts under a different user name?

Nope. Stay away from this whole situation. It sounds like a lot of extra entanglement that you don’t need. I also remember your previous posts and I think the less you’re involved in her personal life, the better for everyone.

I remember this Ukrainian SIL. No, don’t matchmake her with your parents’ neighbour! He deserves someone better…

j_jaye :  that’s exactly what I thought!

 

OP leave your sister in laws alone. Considering how judgey you are about their lives I can almost certainly guarantee you are not thinking about *her* when you set her up and having her move to Australia will not benefit either of you.

Plus the fact that you want to set her up with someone you barely know just because they are from the same country of origin is weird and a bit tacky.

I remember a very similar story here about someone compliaining about the sister in-law visiting. And she was lazy, going out a lot and meeting random guys. Sounds like you. If you are even questioning this, you know the answer already if you should get involved or not.

I thought this all sounded very familiar too…

 No, don’t set her unless she has specifically asked you to help, this all sounds a bit weird.

Didn’t you rag on this woman endlessly?

No, don’t “match make” someone for visa status ffs.

Why the hell would you even consider saddling some guy with this chick?

The VERY OBVIOUS answer is NO, you don’t introduce your lazy triffling ass bum of a SIL to anyone as a possible partner.

kellymo123 :  “One of the things my parents said was that maybe she is like this cause she hasnt got a good guy to give her good influence.”

Your parents should find a hobby; one that preferably does not include meddling in other’s people’s lives.

“The other thing is as the guy has a good conditions, e.g. has a house etc, so it could be advantageous to her, my husband’s family and myself …”
