I can feel the pain in your gut. It would be better for you and your marriage to get him out. Get a second job and get him into a trailer or apartment, pay the rent for no more than two years as long as he's in school and he can pay for things such as food and utilities. Even a part-time job can cover that. Then he can live in his mess, call his own curfew, whatever.
