Yes, I know this is yet another slippery slope, but believe me when I say that no matter how rational you think you are now, there is no guarantee of how you will behave later as the physical and emotional stresses of aging take over. In addition some states with their filial responsibility laws will first prevent you from keeping your parents from putting their finances in jeopardy, then give you the bill for their care after they have made themselves insolvent.

Man, talk about total bs. I see I've got work and research to do. Just reading this makes me 'fighting' mad. I was abused by my dad as a kid. No frakking way in hell will I let my parents, my in-laws or anybody else take advantage of us now. Not going to happen. Everything I have was created by working long hard hours, a disciplined investing approach and both DW and I's frugality and sacrifice.
