Okay, here's the story. We pay more than half of my MIL's house payment every month because she insisted she neededa 3 bedroom 2 bath house for just her. The house is next door to my SIL and she refused to look at any others. Because of a buyout, she has gotten more than $90,000 for her previous home and could have already paid for the one she was in, but instead she used buyout money for other things and we are stuck paying for half her house since she is on a fixed income. Now she calls and doesn't ask she says we have to pay the full amount of the payment (we've already given her half this month) because she paid my SIL's house payment instead of her own. Basically, her house payment is due tomorrow and she wants $500 tonight so she can pay it. I don't think we should have to shell out even more money when she got herself into this mess. When we agreeed to pay $300/month of MIL's mortgage I wanted to send it straight to the bank, but she wanted it in her account so she could write a check and they wouldn't know she couldn't make the payments herself. Would it be wrong to just start making the payments to the bank so at least I know it's going where it should?
Note: My SIL quit her job and her husband doesn't make enough to pay all the bills. She's not looking for another job and she knew he didn't make enough to make ends meet when she quit. Her youngest child is a senior in high school and there was no reason for her to quit other than she was sick of working.
