My house is 1000 sq. ft. And has 5 people living in it, my husband and I and our 3 children. My 24 year old brother showed up 2 weeks ago unannounced and started sleeping on the couch. He has no job but says he will start putting in applications today, he usually finds jobs very easily but doesn't keep them long. Since he has been here my husband and I have had zero private time because my brother is always here! He sleeps at different times of day and night, or for 14 straight hours. My kids are put out because they have to be quiet and not play around while he is asleep or in a bad mood, I'm put out because my work space is in the living room and I haven't been able to do much, my husband is put out because he works 6 days a week to pay bills and support his family but he has a grown man sleeping on his couch all day doing nothing. I don't know how to ask him to leave, he has emotional issues, but he has to go because there is tension brewing here. Advice?
