My in laws and us joined households because we were all financially struggling.
Our lease is up, landlord wants to sell we all gotta leave..and dh and I are no longer struggling so we want to look for a house just for us and ds. My mil lost her job within this year and fil is extremely lazy and will not look for a different job (only makes 800/month) mil collected unemployment and its now ran up leaving them obviously still in a bind, where WE are paying for everything and mil is now looking into foodstamps ><. She can not trade bananas to the electric company and its frustrating me that we have no extra money because we are carrying them. There would freedom splitting houses but mil is ASSUMING we are yet again, signing with them.. though its been talked about we realize this would screw them but I cant help but think selfishly. What can we do? Where are our options? On one hand I want to say, you know what get a job your capable still and you are holding us back and on the other I feel bad because mil worked for 28 years and got let go BUT she also had a 9month break now.. fil is weird and just refuses to work more than part time with zero side obligations and is very specific about the jobs he would do.
Im more than willing to take care of them when I know they are incapable, but now is not that time.
Help me. What can they do if we did split houses? Am I stuck? Please say no!
