My son and his fiancee recently moved into my Mother In-Law's home, she is in a nursing home so they are there taking care of it and making sure it isn't just sitting there.
His Fiancee (we'll call her Taylor) has two children from a marriage she has been trying to end for over 2 years, she collects money monthly from her soon to be exhusband totaling $800 a month. She doesn't work and has chosen to stay home with her two young daughters who are 2 and 5 (oldest starts school THIS fall) because the cost of daycare would be more than she would make working currently.
My son (we'll call him Keith) works 36-38 hours a week an hour from where they live. His truck gets very poor gas mileage and goes through $20 a day in gas if he drives it to and from work.
"Keith" came to us and threw well... an adult temper tantrum because he can't afford the gas on his truck so we loaned him our newer model truck while him and my Husband fix up the older car my Mother-In-Law used to drive.. This was 5 months ago, is it wrong of me to want our truck back? And he overdrafted his checking account, he isn't sure how it happened.. Would it be wrong of me to give him money to correct his error?
They are great kids and I love "Taylor's" little girls to death so please don't bash on her.. the papers are filed he is delaying it again.
When is enough enough and when do I cut our son off and take back our truck?
Both "keith" and "taylor" are in their early 30's if that helps at all.
