my mil had came to stay with us for a year and a half before we got into an heated arguement where she called the cops and told them I slashed her tires (she'd had a nail in it and it'd been flat for 3 days). I let a lot of the things she's said and done towards me slide, simply because my respect for her as my husbands mother. After the year and a half she walk out and refused to pay her rent ($300 a month 2 bedrooms because she nagged about having no space and we stored all her furniture because she had just recently divorced). After she lived in her car for a few weeks she begged us to come back. My husband and I agreed but we agreed she would pay rent and stay out of our way. So far shes abided by minding her own business, but now she has told him she doesnt have the money to pay rent. She has No car(she borrows her ex-husbands) and makes over $1800 a month. I'm in disbelief my husband even agreed to this after we agreed what her terms here would be. I just went on maternity leave and all the money I saved up is to care and supply for our child (furnish the nursery, buy diapers etc.) while he would pay the bills since we knew what our bills monthly average was. Now shes here washing 3 to 4 loads of clothes every 4 days sleeping with the lights, tv and fan on, and always on the phone. My question is should I help him with the bills or not. I have the money put up strictly for our child and for groceries til I return to work (i dont get paid for mat. leave but I do have some sick/paid vacation days), he can pay all the bills but then he will be personally strapped for cash.
We're moving in 2months so the living arrangement isn't permanent inother words, she's not moving with us we're just giving her somewhere to stay until we move. And shes 53 and we're 24 and 26.
