A man tells his wife to get a job or that his children should start paying rent

When a man’s adult stepchildren became too much of a financial burden, he chose to give his wife an ultimatum that drove a wedge between the couple.

After five years of marriage, he had reached the end of his tether — and the bottom of his wallet — due to his children piling up the cost of living.

He thinks his wife and children should get a job and start contributing to the household expenses.

Sharing his story with Reddit’s r/AmITheA–hole subreddit, the man explained the reasoning behind his ultimatum.

His wife has two children from a previous marriage, a 22-year-old son, Jason, and a 19-year-old daughter, Carla.

“When we got married, my wife still had 50/50 custody of her kids and she wanted to move into my house,” the man wrote.

He ended up converting his attic into another bedroom so the two kids could have their own space.

However, he shares that he was never a hugely important figure in the lives of his stepchildren.
