Ok, advice please.

So as you know I hang out with my aunt every week. She's a bit out there sometimes...anyway my husband and I just had a massive argument about letting her drive during our outings. She's insistent about doing it and my car is hard on her back so she won't go in it. Long story short, my husband has forbidden me to ride with her because she can be somewhat inattentive when she drives and on occasion she's a bit reckless. For instance a few years ago she went the wrong way on a two way street with a divider...so how do I figure this all out without upsetting her? I see her weekly so it is a recurring problem.

Oh WOW.

Well first it seems to me that your husband is doing what he is suppose to do, that is protecting you as his wife. I believe it is in most vows, "Love, Honor, Cherish, and Protect" so he is not just being a jerk, even if it came across that way.

Your aunt might need to be sat down and gently showed how her actions could harm others. This is going to meet with push back. She is going to feel that she is being treated like a child. She may not ever forgive you.

There really is no way around this, IMHO. Your husband is doing the right thing, even if he went about it the wrong way. Your aunt will likely push back, but she may come around.

My two pennies.

Unfortunately I think you're right. Sigh.....................................
What a mess. I already had to tell her I can't be around her smoking and I know she was hurt by that. It's like she's trying to kill me or something! Ha! Thanks for your advice, I always appreciate feedback!

On another note, I will sadly have to post tomorrow instead of today. I unexpectedly have to help my sister move. So sorry everyone!
