"Acting so crazed all the time" REALLY...??? If someone is threatening to take your child you ARE crazed ALL the time. You can't eat, sleep or think. Lulu is playing the part. Right now her loyalty is not to Maxie, the person that caused the mess in the first place. Her loyalty is to Connie, her baby, nothing means more...... Mazie is not a bad person but, she is a person that does not have COMMON sense and she does not think things through. She is always doing something that makes no sense, but for her, it is logical. That is because she has the mentality of a child, she is not fit to raise one. Now, Spinelli is getting back with Ellie, Maxie sure cannot handled the baby now. But, the one thing we cannot forget is after Maxie knew that Lulu knew the baby was not her, Maxie still insisted that Lulu COULD STILL HAVE THE BABY.. it wasn't until her Mom's mentioned that she could get custody that she gave it any serious thought. Lulu and Dante may not get the baby, as they are not the bio parents, but, Maxie did them a terrible injustice and she should pay. And everyone has to admit, whether you like Maxie or Lulu, none of this would have happen IF MAXIE would have told the TRUTH in the begining. NEVER lie, it will catch up with you.[/quote]
How do you determine the cost of Maxie’s “injustice”? Can you honestly believe that she should be forced to relinquish her child as payment for her actions? That would truly be a monumental injustice. I agree that Maxie has marshmallows shaped like a brain at times but, she is the mother and wants her baby. No capable person should be forced to give up their child to make another person happy. Maxie has done nothing to suggest that she is an unfit mother and deserves the chance to parent. Even in adoptions, both parents are given a time period to reclaim their child. Should Maxie and Spinelli be denied that right just to make Lulu happy? What happened to Lulu was unfortunate but, people can’t be traded or given away. You can’t just take one you like and call it your own. Connie/Georgie is not Lulu’s baby. Parental rights were not given away or taken from Maxie or Spinelli. No adoption occurred. What was said in the church means nothing, some people spurt nonsense when under pressure.
If you feel it is compensation that Lulu and Dante deserves for the injustice done to them, it should be in a monetary form not a human being.[/quote]
The good thing about a message board is that we do not have to agree.......and we don't. I am not a person that has watched GH for a long time. I started when the characters of OLTL came over. My first memory of Maxie is when Spenelli
was confessing his love and she could not be bothered. She was in love with a guy that was going to jail and she married him so that she would not have to testify against him.( he committed the crime) Next, when Spenelli met Ellie and wanted a relationship with her, Maxie got jealous and wanted
him back. So to pacify herself and to try to get over Spenilli, she decides to be Lulu's surrogate. Lulu gave her many times to back out, Maxie BEGGED for the job. So being the "responsible adult" that she is, she decided to have unprotected sex with a man that she KNEW was in LOVE with another woman. ELLIE... Wah la, she get pregnant with Spenelli's baby and she had amble time to tell the truth, especially after Ellie busted her out, but NO she had to do it her way. She has never learned that "actions have consequences" even for her. She says she wants the baby, and she may think she does, but, what about when something better or more exciting comes along,???? Her parents had to plant the seed for her to try to get custody of Connie, she was still ok with Lulu and Dante having the baby. Now, you want her to TRY? , and she should be given a CHANCE? , to raise the baby. Well, with her history and background would you really subject a small child to that??? As a last resort Spenelli should take his baby and get out of Dodge....This is not about making Lulu happy, or about any monetary compensation, it is about the best thing for the baby,a baby that should be raised wih morale convictions and who would be raised to be an asset to society, not a person who lies constantly.[/quote]
I suppose we won't agree.
Your synopsis appears one sided. You seem to forget that Lulu also is morally bankrupt. It was Lulu who seduced a married man, it was Lulu who killed a man and agreed to keep it a secret (I know that they both had a part in the secret).It was Lulu who decided to befriend a known mobster and go into business with him. It is she who on one hand condemns the likes of Sonny but defends Johnny. How does she justify Luke’s actions…? I see, in Lulu’s world morality is flexible. I don’t believe the morality argument will work…
As for teaching a child to be a productive member of society, I would argue that Lulu is not mentor material. It is Maxie who has a steady career, not a job. Maxie loves what she does for a living and is very good at it. What does Lulu do? Oh yes, she goes into business with a mobster, places herself in precarious situations then complains when things go wrong.
Why would you say Spinelli should be a last resort? When are father's last resorts? Spinelli has a lot less negative history than either of them. Maxie and Spinelli have more parental rights to the baby by virtue of being her natural parents than any verbal contract/statement made in the church.
I guess we will have to wait and see how this plays out. [/quote]
It seems that your synopsis was off base. that sweet little Maxie was busy, with another woman's husband and the things she did was unexcusable. Breaking up a family so that you can have the man that you want, with no regard to his wife and kids, that is not a person with strong morals. And then lying about a miscarriage???? PLEASE>>>> As stated before Maxie wants what she wants, when she wants it like a 2 yr old and when she is tired she wants to move on.
