People can only take advantage of you to the extent that you let them.

If they won’t share in the chores, get your own place and do not have roommmates.

If your name is on the lease, then you can take control and make it clear what is acceptable and what isn’t. Without their names on that lease, they have no say on who stays or goes in the apartment. If they are mistreating you, threaten to evicte them. Look in to rental rights in your area so that you are informed. 

That, or be honest with your roommates. Tell them how horrible they are treating you and set up some rules. Or move out on your own.

Get a cleaning lady. Make everyone split it evenly and therefore NO ONE will feel crappy about it. We have a cleaning lady; best money we’ve ever spent to deal with getting rid of potential fights and angry feelings!

In My Humble Opinion, youand your Fiance need to get your own place. I think having roomates is fine as long as you are all getting along, but oce it starts being stressful etc., it’s best to just move on.

Move into the house or a smaller apartment without them, it’s not worth your mental health to be living with ungrateful jerks.

Don’t let them move into the new house with you.  If you can’t afford it like that, either find new roommates or get a smaller place that the two of you can afford to live in together ALONE!!

I will never understand a grown, engaged/married couple having roomates.  Maybe it’s just because in my geographical area, people don’t too often take roomates.  I would rather live in a tiny basement apartment with Darling Husband than to share our living space with others.
