If they are its of thier own making.

They have 2 decent incomes, a smaller and much cheaper house than ours. Free daycare and MIL gave them $10000 to buy a newer car as she did for us as well to buy out our lease.

They have money to go to concerts, play rep and house league hockey, go to hockey games. All 3 of thier kids have new ipod touches that they were playing with last weekend face timing each other as well as all 3 of thier ds's with a ton of games.

They should be in a much better place financially than we are.

I guess I just feel like they were only up for it when it was a financial gain for them and thats what pisses me off.
