How do you get grown kids out of the house. My husband will never make them leave

Any suggestions, ideas, etc to make them WANT to leave. DH will have them living here for forever if they want to (they are his boys; we have a baby together). No chores, no jobs, no school and they are 24 and 26 years old. They party all night and sleep all day; and wake our baby each night. What can I do, other than voodoo, to get them OUT! I'm wanting some sneaky tactics here, cause I've tried all other reasonable forms of talking, discussing, pleading, begging, etc. etc.

  • At the very least, make sure you are not doing ANYTHING for them. Don't cook, clean, do laundry or anything that would make their lives easier.

  • Pack your chit and the baby and go stay at a friends or family members house to show him that you are serious.

  • I think I remember other posts from you. Man I was hoping you'd solved the problem since then. I don't recommend divorce really but there's no easy solution. Your man obviously doesn't want to make them grow up and move on in life and that's so sad because someday he won't be here to support them and then what's going to happen?
    You need to think of your baby... it's just not good for a little one to be woke up all thru the night... what's going to happen when they have to start school?
    Your hubby should consider the only child in that house and do something about the adults acting like teenagers.

  • Stop enabling them, even if you have to lie to your hubs and make him think that supporting them still is becoming too much of a financial burden, then slide in there how you think if they could at least get a job and help out with some expenses
