thank you so much to everyone that responded to my discussion about my daughter and her fiance..i wanted to update everyone on the situation..he is now paying rent and 1/4 of the bills.. altho he is not happy about it lol.. we sat them down after reading everyones comments and told them flat out this is the way it is going to be he would start paying immediatly and he had one month to find a job which he did .. they actually thought it was up for discussion and tried to bargin with us and i finally lost my cool after 2 hours of talking and told them they had one hour to pack their things and get out.. i told them this is not a democracy this is a dictatorship and we are laying down the law and if they didnt want to follow what we had laid out to them which was very fair then they could move in with his parents or find someplace else to live.. we gave them one hour to discuss it between themselves and come up with an answer they could either start packing or come to our terms.. well they talked about it and my daughter actually came upstairs and apoligized to us for being such a spoiled brat she said they were taking advantage of us and that she was sorry she told us that there wouldnt be a problem following our rules or him paying rent.. he now has a job while she is at school and things are working out great.. they cant afford to go out to eat every night and he has actually told my husband he was grateful for what he did and he apoligized also just took him a little longer then my daughter which i understood because he has always had everything handed to him and she hasnt..but anyway things are now going very well and i just wanted to thank everyone who commented on it for all of your help in seeing that yes we were right and helping me to stand up to them and not fear the future.. so again thank you fellow my loters and friends

It was for the good. More parents need to lay down the law. Thank you for doing it.
