My brother and his wife got a divorce last year and my brother had to find a place of his own to live. His wife got the house and both of the kids. My brother was at fault in the divorce. He has a terrible drinking problem and he isn’t ready to face the music. I hope that losing his wife and kids will finally be the one thing that makes him change. My brother had to move to my mom and dad’s house and he is now living in the garage apartment. He had to pay for a lawyer for the divorce and that took every dollar he was earning. My parents did their best to make the garage apartment a nice place to live. They wanted the kids to have a place to visit their dad. They installed hardwood flooring with radiant heat so the garage would be warm in the cold months. The radiant heated floors were a nice touch if you ask me. I can’t even afford radiant heat in my house. They also paid an HVAC company to install a mini-split, ductless air conditioner. After they finished installing the heating and air conditioning equipment, they hired a plumber to turn the half bath into a full bathroom with a shower. My brother is really lucky that my mom and dad are still supportive after all of the trouble that he causes. This is the second time he has been divorced and now he has two small children. I really hope he will finally stop drinking.
