AskEMME: OH, BROTHER!

Q: My younger brother has found the car of his dreams, but he has bad credit and can’t afford it. He wants me to co-sign for the car and put the insurance in my name. I said no, but he’s been begging me constantly. Now he’s dragged our mother into it.

AskEMME: I DO?

Q: My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year and a half, and we’re thinking about getting married.

When I recently confronted them, they denied they were a couple, but I know they were ...

AskEMME: FAMILY TIES

Q: I am married to a Brazilian man, but we live in the United States. We have a three-year-old daughter, and my husband’s mother insists that I send our daughter to Brazil to live with her for the summer. I said no without even blinking, and now my husband says I’m alienating his mother. I barely know his family. Before I even consider my mother-in-law’s request, I will have to become intimately familiar with her. Am I wrong for saying no? How can ...
