We have a roommate, DH and I. Actually, she needed a place to stay for a while and we were moving into a 2 bedroom apt. so we said she could move in until she finds another place. That was in June…it is now February and we want her out. Problem is, I foolishly trusted her with the lease. I asked her to sign on the occupant line (not the lease line) and asked her if she could drop it off to the landlord since I had to be at work (this was in June). She signed the lease line. I take that as being intentional since I “X’ed” where she was supposed to sign. Now the landlord says since she is included on the lease, we can’t kick her out until the lease is up this June.
I try to be as charitable as possible but she is imposing on our marriage. She wont talk to me, only to DH and about private issues that I wish she wouldn’t talk to him about. I’ve told her this clearly several times but she still continues to confide in him. She even got drunk one night and started to explain how she’d be a better wife than me…to him when I wasn’t there. I trust my husband with my life, but I don’t trust her. She drinks by herself just to get drunk. She steals our money (or so we suspect anyway), she’s late on her rent payments, its just frustrating.
What do we do?
