    I need help.

    I need to figure out a way to get my sister in-law to break up with her total loser live-in boyfriend. The guy is a total cancer. He hasn't worked in over 2 years (she supports him on a very modest income). He has 3 kids from previous marriages, he doesn't pay any support. He has no friends. He is verbally abusive to her. All of her friends have abandoned her, saying they refuse to be a part of her life if he's around.

    He last got a job as a janitor but immediately quit because "it was too hard" on his knees.

    They live somewhat close and this is all my wife and her parents talk about. My wife is going crazy at the thought of little sister with such a piece of shit. She drags me into everything. Holidays are awkward as fuck. I'm forced into these family gatherings.

    How can I break them up?

    Should I recommend we go nuclear and have an intervention to lay it all out?

    He always tries to come over during football season because he doesn't have cable. I say no every time, coming up with a new excuse, and he never gets the hint.

    I've thought about something like that. Hiring a whore, etc. But the problem is he never leaves the house and I don't really think it would work anyway.

    When he comes over... after the small talk... when the ladies run off to do whatever and it's just us guys... he leans in to me and graphically describes how hot this porn video was that he jacked-off to earlier that day.

    She used to be very cute but she's aging badly. Gaining weight, bad hair dyes, etc.

    Tell her you don't approve of him and if she stays with him it's going to affect the family but it's her choice and not for you to decide.

    That makes bringing in a new love interest tricky, but it is still possible.

    No, no and no. Wrong direction.

    I need to convince the sister in-law to leave but she gets very defensive, almost angry if we bring it up

    Not an option. We just moved into our current house a few months ago. It's huge, close to work, etc. We're not going anywhere.

    What about an intervention?
