Some parents take their kids back into their homes when things go awry during their adult years. However, sometimes, what’s supposed to be a few weeks back at home to figure things out turns into an unproductive period that causes tension.

One man recently had to give his stepson an ultimatum after he moved back home because his wife kicked him out for cheating.

He and his wife have been married for six years and together for 12 total. His wife has a 25-year-old son from a previous relationship.

A while back, his stepson got his longtime girlfriend pregnant, and he encouraged him to marry her and raise their family in their own home. So, that’s what his stepson did. He got married and bought a house where he and his wife could raise their son.

Unfortunately, his stepson’s family life recently went south.

Four months ago, his stepson was at his door with a suitcase. He said his wife had kicked him out of their house, and he later discovered it was because his wife found out he was cheating on her with a coworker.

His stepson didn’t use his time back at home wisely. Instead, he would come home from work and start drinking. Whenever his two-year-old son was dropped off for visits, he would take naps and not try to spend time with him.

About a month into his stepson’s ‘visit,’ he gave him three options. The first was he could return to his own house and try to make things work with his wife, who was open to trying again.

The second was to stay home but make more effort to be a productive co-parent and get his life together. The third option was getting kicked out and forced to figure things out alone.
