My family borrows money quite a bit.
I helped my mom on a down payment for her house.
I bought a house and let my sister, who is a college student, stay in it for free, I just ask her to make sure the renovations I schedule get done in a timely manner. I paid for her tuition. I give her $250 a month just for whatever she needs. But she pays for her own car. ( I feel like she's a college student, I want her to focus) She's 19 now and as long as her GPA stays over a 3.0 I'm okay with paying.
Now my issue is, because I help my sister out so much, and they heard about my mom getting her down payment taken care of, My hubby's siblings are now HOUNDING us for CASH. The issue is, 1. is his sister, doesn't do anything, no aspirations 2. his older brother is always asking and he also is doing nothing and the only one I would really help at this point is the one who would never ask.
I bring in a good amount of money. We'll just leave it at it's 6 figures. My Hubby brings in about half of what I do. So I call the shots with the bills. I don't really want to give his sister and brother money. The sister is asking for 2k and the brother is asking for money so he can go back to school. I said when he is actually enrolled, send the tuition statement.
Am I being too unfair?
