Helping homeless- I forgot

This is a good question for couples to explore before marriage, and if you are married now.. you might want to talk how you each think and feel about opening your home to relatives in need, or people you don't know. Might considered, if for free or for some payment like chores? How long can they stay for free even if dong chores? What happens if they won't leave? Do you go through an agency, who helps resolve any issues? Having someone come live with you is a big discisson; it can be disatourus; a quick decision based on base instincts got Eve into a lot of trouble.

Helping homeless

Overall it went pretty well. They appear to have a large home for 2 people; cost a pretty penny to have a lot of empty space. She the female, nurturing, emotional one (her nature) is presenting her idea to the male (protector, provider) husband (house-band) in what to him is spur of the moment. If she resorts to tossing him out the bedroom till he sees her way - need marriage counseling - threats or punishments no way to solve any problem together. Is he really late for the reasons he mentioned or since he didn't have a real buy in; but was munipulated into it, conciously or not; was he hoping no one would be there if he were late? Mention the names, well it's obvious; but seems like a way to check sensitivies. and the end went well

Can't we all just get along?

Lighten up! It's a comedy. Larry David has done more for Christian-Jewish reconciliation (ala Seinfeld) than all you complainers put together.
