This is how a gold digger works her way into your nickers.

Q: How did this come about?? Why shouldn't she pay rent??
Bottom line: Even if your house is paid for, she must never think that living under your roof doesn't cost anything, because it does.....and it should.
Depending upon location, I would think $400-$500 per month is reasonable. It's not just use of your house, per se. She also gets use of everything in it, including quiet enjoyment (aka, prestige
) of your neighborhood - and that's worth "something." It's called intrinsic value
Tit for tat, Bro. Dish it back her way. Time to find out if she's entitled.
