Paris, pensions & raffle prizes – this week's MSE Forum highlights

Money Moral Dilemma

Every week, the Money Tips email features a real-life Money Moral Dilemma (MMD for short). They're intended to encourage debate and, as such, they're usually among the most discussed threads each week.

Should we cease contact with our daughter's ex-husband who owes us money?

Over several years, we lent our daughter's now ex-husband £20,000 for various business ventures, all of which failed. They got divorced this year but we've maintained contact to recoup our money. He's making monthly repayments and has, to date, paid back £6,000. However, our daughter has taken legal action to stop him from contacting her, and has told us she doesn't want us talking to him as it means he potentially has access to her. Should we do as she wants and risk losing the outstanding £14,000?

See what our MSE Forumites had to say and add your own thoughts on the Money Moral Dilemma discussion thread. Do please stick to the MSE Forum rules: keep it kind and keep it clean. Remember, there's a real person behind every dilemma.

Soontobeoap bought a cutting machine last November but has only just got round to experimenting with it, and these are some of the greetings cards they've produced. Check out our Crafting board for loads more creative inspiration.

Latest comping wins

After three years of entering competitions without a win, Bondieboy struck gold this week with the news that they're the proud owner of a new iPhone 15 Pro and £1,000 to spend on fashion with eBay.

Meanwhile Oreo the dog will soon be enjoying the comfort of a £180 luxury dog bed, after their owner won another comp they'd spotted on the MSE Forum.

Your two cents

If you've heard MSE and Martin Lewis talking this week about the time-limited opportunity many people have to top up their state pension, we have a dedicated area of the Forum where you can ask questions and share your experience of the process.
