mexicalijennie:  Tell your FI he has two choices:

-help his brother find a place

or

-change the locks on July 1.

Why don’t you guys make a day of looking together or something?  Like maybe hit up brunch, make a few appointments to view places, go have a midday drink, look at more places, & then go home, have a glass wine & talk about the options together.  That way it won’t seem so bad & nobody seems naggy 😉

mexicalijennie:  I’m glad your SO talked to his brother again. I think at this point you need to ease up a bit and give your SO time to work with his brother on finding another place. You don’t want this to turn into you forcing him to push his brother away, you don’t want to build resentment from his brother either. You’ve been together for a year but his brother was living there before you so he deserves some courtesy IMO.

mexicalijennie:  Would it be possible for his brother to find a place near you guys (i.e. same apartment complex/development)?  That way, he’s still near family, but isn’t actually in your living space all the time.
