  • Why is it what do "I" need to do? Your hubby invited him and your hubby is upset, tell your hubby to grow some balls and kick them out! It was all his doing in the first place.

  • Um, give them a time frame say 30 days and they have to be out. That's if you wanna be nice about it. If you don't them just say get the heck out....this isn't working out...cause you ain't working! (haha)

    It's your house and you guys were being generous. Now they are taking advantage of you and that means you are not respecting yourself enough to not let them do that.

  • Give them a time limit to get a job, if they don't have a job kick them out, you and your DH have done more than enough to help them and shouldn't be expected to do more.

  • You and your husband will have to set down and talk about this. Since he's the one to let your brother move in, he'll have to be the one to tell him to go, and who invited the girlfriend to stay? No wonder your life has so much stress!

    You can't let this come between you and your husband. Sometimes tough love is in order to save your sanity, and this sounds like one of those times.

  • So your marriage to your husband is going to end because he doesn't like your brother and the girlfriend living off him?

    This shouldn't even be a question in your mind as an issue with your marriage... since he's your brother, you tell him they're straining your DH and that

    1) brother gets a job and helps out
    2) girlfriend gets a job and helps out too
    3) they leave

    Let brother know you love him and are trying to help, but with the two of them, on top of the 3 of you (i'm assuming your pg from the "he doesn't want anything to happen" comment) it is becoming too much for your DH to handle alone. If he is welcome to stay, let him know that, but that he needs to get a job or he cannot. Remember too, that you left your family to be with your DH, and you should try to support him the best you can, even if that means asking your live-in family to help out. There's no shame in it.
