Ok so DH and I are in a very good financial place and we can afford a nice house, a nice car and we pretty much have everything we need.
My SIL is 19 and she is staying with us for 6 months.
She totally spends as much as she can. She asks DH for clothes, shoes etc almost every other day and she goes out every evening.
So hubby and I decided to tell her she needs to get a part time job (at least) so she can cover some of her own expences.
My MIL called- she was furious at DH and me for asking her daughter to do that when we can afford to pay for everything.
DH and I don't wanna keep spending hundreds of dollars daily on his sister. It's not about the money, it's just that she's taking the money for granded and she takes advantage of us.
Are we wrong?

You should also tell her that she need to pay rent.... even if it's only $30-50 bucks a week....and draw up a rental agreement for her to sign. Then if she can't abide by it you can evict her!! You are so in the right to ask her to kick in for her own expences!!
