My parents are going through a divorce, and my mother is already living with her new bf, I'm her only daughter and he has two sons, I've only met one but the impression I get from the one I have met is he likes to take advantage of his dad, he has 5 kids, and asks for ALOT from his dad, from a play pool for the kids to stuff for himself, and he's in his 30s so he's a little old for that. But anyways, my dad is living in the house right now but is planning to move across the country to be near his family. Well they have alot of things to get rid of because my moms new bf has everything, and my dad is gettingn an apartment so he's not taking that much. Well my BIL is a drug addict and has stolen ALOT from his mother so she needs alot of household things and is on disability and cant afford to replace everything with brand new stuff, and she has asked if she could buy some things from my parents like the lawn mower and things like that. Well I brought it up to my mother and she got very defensive saying her bfs son needed it. Which I feel is wrong to be giving her bfs son things that were my dads, especially when he isn't paying for it. Another thing I found offensive is I live in an apartment now but in a month or two I'll probably be moving to a house, and she didnt even consider saving it for me. She is always trying to impress everyone at my expense but I just thought this was out of line. I would have just gone to my dad about it but he's having a hard time and the subject would just upset him and he's left alot of what happens to things up to her.
Should I be upset that she's giving her bfs son handouts just to impress his family when my MIL really NEEDS some of these things and his son is just too lazy to get his own things? Idk if I should confront her or what, help!
