>>But what I don't understand is why he isn't doing his share as part of the deal. Is he working? Does he contribute to the household? Does he do things that need doing around the house?<<Very good questions. He does work, but only enough to buy beer and smokes. He does not contribute or help out around the house. The only "deal" is that we keep him fed and sheltered instead of him living on the street and dying. The rest of his life is up to him.He has a lot of problems, sustance abuse being the worst. He thinks he is smarter than everyone else, the world owes him a living. I'm sure every family has someone like this. Unfortunatly, ours is living in my garage. If you have ever had to deal with people with addition, this you will recognize this destructive behaviour.My wife is the weak link. Until she is strong enough to force him to deal with his problems, he will continue to self destruct. I can not help him, or her except to pay for professional councilling for them both when they are ready. I've tried this route already. It was very expensive. That is one of the reasons I'm broke and in debt.All I can do wait for him to either wake up and get better or die. Either way, it cost me money and taxes my mental strenth.
