Two yrs. ago I lent a large sum of money to my married daughter when her husband was very publicly arrested.

Originally, she wanted to leave with her infant daughter, but she changed her mind and she ended up using the money for her husbands legal fees. It took awhile, but he was released and they seem to have mended their problems.

I always made it very clear that the money was a loan and needed to be paid back, but no attempt has been made to pay any of it back.

My daughter is now about to deliver her second child. She is very difficult to talk to under the best of terms, but now she flies off the handle at the drop of a pin. My husband has been out of work for 3 months and we need that money back. I don't expect her to be able to send it all back, but to at least make payments on a schedule like with any other loan, that would end with it being paid for in the next 3 yrs. I want to put this in writing since I believe she'd hang up with me if I ask for it on the phone, and to be honest, I'm a little afraid to put it into words with her. Does anyone else have a suggestion? Am I wrong to ask for it back two yrs. later?
