    feel sorry for Ed, working all hours, nothing is good enough for Emmur, lets hope that she falls under a tube train whilst in London.

    He is getting what he deserves for messing with his brother's wife it's Karma. Nothing satisfies Emma she will always want something more and expects others to get it for her. I do feel a little sympathy for Ed creeping in gradually as he was very young and foolish and is now saddled for life.

    We all know that when Emma comes back from her posh wedding in Leeundon she'll be even more discontented and tetchy.
    Ed should put his foot down and stop being such a wimp trying to please her all the time!

I do feel a little sympathy for Ed creeping in gradually as he was very young and foolish and is now saddled for life.  I feel he's reaping the whirlwind now or whatever the saying is but he's certainly paying for his indisrections.
    It does seem to me as though he really loves Emma and is doing his utmost for her but of course it will never be good enough and he's feeling guilty he's not able to give her the life to which she feels she's entitled.
    Don't know how long he'll stand the constant droning on,I'd sooner live in the cow shed.

    Emma cannot be pleased!

    An unhappy, whining little cow.

    She needs a Scold's Bridle, and a session on the Ducking Stool......

    It is never going to be good enough. She married Will who gave all the security but she felt she was too young to be tied down in Ambridge with the children, gardening and the WI. Ed represented fun but she is back to square one and her life hasn't changed.

    The grass on Ed's side of the fence looked greener ...... but that was only because of all the manure that resided there!

    Te he he!

    But it is correct that Enema is unhappy & I'm afraid it will be both Will & Ed's fault. Not her own.....

    Yes that sums her and the situation up very nicely.

    I don't feel sorry for Ed; he and Emma are in a mess of their own making. I feel sorry for Keira ; poor child having those two for parents she is doomed.

    Snork Dougal: I always wondered why the grass was always greener. Now I know.

    I don't believe in karma as such. However, I have observed that those who make others unhappy will often not find it themselves. A self-inflicted karma.

    Well, I feel sorry for both of them. They are both trying to find more work and it is Susan and Neil who seem keener on Emma going to this blessed wedding than she is.

    Of course, the decision to have Kiera whilst they were in a dicey financial situation was rather foolish, but that's another matter.

    If they are having any sort of state benefit, which they must surely qualify for, and have another child, Ian Duncan Smith will be after them! And they will have even less money.

    Emma could just have said no to the wedding, and destroyed the invitation. After it came out (hah!), she could have said thanks to her parents for the offer, but if they were still willing to give her the money, she'd rather use it for the family.

    But she didn't do either of those things. Instead, a good part of what her parents have given her will go on a present for a 'friend' she hasn't seen for many, many years.

    So do I NEW.

    They're in a rotten situation and it's not at all uncommon.

    Yes, were he alive today maybe the great William Shakespeare could write a play about her! 'The Taming of the Shrew' springs to mind, but maybe that's a bit harsh.

    She COULD have destroyed the invitation after declining and nobody would have been any the wiser but she wouldn't have been able to play the martyr then.

    No story in that, Maggie. No story in them claiming benefit and still struggling but in a more realistic either.

    This SL really is being pursued despite taking advantage of any respite that IS being offered!

    Job in the supermarket available .... may well fit around milking, so why can't Enema at least apply?
    Just as silly as not asking for help from parents.
    Just as silly as not asking for extra maintenance from Will for George's extra costs.

    The constant & active avoidance of any form of help is driving all sympathy & empathy out of this situation for me.
    Which is a shame, as it could be good..... & now it's just silly.
