O,k, i have been with my husband for going on 8 years we got married last june, so i have been in stepsons life since he was 13 going on 14. He recently got a job march of this year, he has one chore to take out the trash, which he thinks its beneath him to have to do this as the trash can sits at the end of the driveway untill i moan to his dad and then HE brings it in. He does his own laundry when i tell him of the bad odor coming from his room, he is addicted to online gaming and found this out recently when my husband has same name and bank as him and opened his statement by mistake, $170 in 2 weeks in online gaming. We are struggling a little financially and i asked my husband to ask him to start paying $50 a week room and board and to give him a time frame on when to move out, my husband got so upset that i would even think of such a thing, his mom passed in 2001 and he said he cant approach his son over something like this as he promised his ex deceased wife that he would ALWAYS take care of him, am i being unreasonable in my 2 requests, please advice anyone.
