Please forgive me OP.I really do not drag your thread even after your problem is solved.Hope you have a lovely motherhood. Spiderman, The examples were what I had seen and they were meant for the original poster and not for you. I was not generalising but trying to make a point by giving some examples.They were to give her real life examples that having sons do not mean a well secured old age.Daughters are a boon too. I feel the original posters problem is solved and we dont need to squabble anymore. Thank you.
