My husband and i been married for almost 9 yrs. It's not easy for me to adjust for the 1st 3 yrs (dealing with ex-wife and stepchildren ages 36, 33 & 25) things been better this past few years until my youngest stepson move back home 6 months ago.Since he move back home with his brother which they live next door from us, they depend their groceries/food to us. At first it's ok with me because I am a very considerate person. Lately I noticed that our groceries are getting higher ($250-300) each week. With the cost of living now a days we cannot afford it.My oldest stepson work part-time and go to school, my youngest stepson work at the bank full time.
Here's my issue:
They don't wash their dishes after they ate. They don't help us
with our groceries/food.
I really want to talk to my husband about the issue but I don't want to hurt his feelings. I badly need an advice how to talk to him that his kids need to grown up and be responsible by not hurting their feelings.
