Need some advice on 35 year old stepson, please
Hello. I have a 35 year old stepson that is in jail at the moment for meth and some other charges. His cousin is a lawyer and is helping him legally for free. Before he got locked up, he sold 2 houses he had and his vehicle, so he basically has nothing now. I had gotten him a job, which he blew off after becoming a meth head. His mother wants to help him, of course. The problem is, he said he needs $80 a week to eat in jail (which is bs, they feed 3 times a day). She had him move in once before, trying to "help" him and I told him to get out when I caught him smoking meth in the house. I know she's been giving him the money and I think she'll want him to stay here again when he gets out. I love my wife and we rarely argue, but I feel like enough is enough. I don't want him here. I will honestly say that I don't like him, I've told him that, too. He's a manipulator and a user. I think my wife feels she didn't do the best job raising him, but c'mon, he's 35 years old! I don't want to lose my wife or move out of our home. Why should I have to start over? Shouldn't he be the one to start over?
Any advise is appreciated.
