Okay so my hubby and i moved in with his dad in dec. To help save money so we can buy a house out in the country. When we moved in my husbands 18 year old sister and her boyfriend were also living here. Now her boyfriend was only going to be staying for a week. Of course it is now march and he is still here, his sister and her boyfriend do not pay any money what so ever and also do not help out around the house at all. I have tried having a family meeting to get them to help out i have tried making chore lists as well but they still do not do anything. I have asked them out front to help out and they say they will but do nothing. We paid our half the rent all the way through june. What can i do to make them help out.

You FIL should be making them help not you. It is his house. His rules. Talk to him. If you do not like the living situations move out. It sounds like you can afford a small apartment some where. But just do not want to. JMO.

I agree with others.
There really isn't anything you personally can do about it. The home is your FIL's, you are just a renter in his home. The best thing you can do is talk to your FIL, explain to him how you feel, and ask him if HE could ask the others to start helping out some. He is the only one that has any control over their behavior in the household and whether or not they help out monetarily.
