Today, my wife is threatening divorce because I won't hire her son, my stepson, at the company I work at. Even the lowest position at my company requires a degree in computing, and prior experience. My stepson dropped out of high school to "discover himself" 12 years ago. FML

Heres what you do: transfer all your money into an account that you "dont own" and serve that beezy divorce papers. Shes not a keeper bro if shes willing to leave you over not hiring her deadbeat son. ...or you know hire his ass as a part time janitor.

Honestly, I'm sure she has her good side, you married her after all, but an all too common mistake made is that we become far too lenient on the bad qualities because we know about the good qualities. She entered a sacred vow of unity with you, for better or for worse. Now she's threatening you and using that vow as a tool of control. That's dangerously close to emotional abuse. It's time to have a very serious talk with the woman about what the marriage means to both of you. I'm not saying definitely divorce her, but from what you're saying, it's time to financially and legally prepare yourself for the worst. She may be a lovely woman aside from how she views her son, but that doesn't necessarily mean she was ready for marriage. Best of luck, OP. Sincerely.

It's still has a digital trail that can be traced. Best thing is to take all your money out in cash form and bury it somewhere in the woods. Go back for it after your divorce is settled. Just don't make the same mistake as I did. I forgot where I stashed my cash.

That was actually a very well reasoned out and thoughtful comment. I applaud this.

What a reasonable answer

Make him the president of raking leaves with a plastic spork

That's completely messed up! she's not worth keeping around

Sounds like a divorce is in the near future.

And what have he discovered? Seriously, I'm assuming the company is not yours and that you are 50+ years old. Firstly, hiring a wortless lazy idiot is going to get you fired, expecially because he is your stepson. Accordingly, the result will be that both of you won't have a job. Moreover, it is plenty of unemployed qualified people who would deserve that job more than him, so doing that would be really unfair.

A high school dropout at a tech company? Sounds like upper management material. LOL

It's about time he 'discovers' that he is unemployable without more education

Compromise. If he wants the job he has to work for the job. Make him go back to school. Make him work for that degree. Once he gets that degree then he can have that job.... until then, I agree with that one person. Place your $$ where she can't get it.

Well, I agree with the majority - divorce the bitch after you protect your assets. But if you're not going to give up, your company must need a janitor (no insult to janitors intended)

Depending on the company, Janitorial work can be easy money.
