Having a child is an expensive business. Cutting expenses in preparation for that child is necessary, like eating out, subscription services, or new clothes. What if your partner has a child with another person? Can you cut them out?
This is an ongoing issue going on in my home. I, 33F, am currently pregnant with my first child. I live in a two-bedroom home with my husband and stepdaughter (23F). My stepdaughter and I get along fine, with no big issues, but we are not super close.
Now that the baby is coming, we need more space. Unfortunately, we can't afford a new home. I brought up to my husband asking my stepdaughter to move out. I reason that we need her room for the new baby, and she is an adult with a full-time job, so it is time for her to be on her own anyway.
