My fiance is 35 years old. He has a problem with always spending money and lying to everyone all the time. he also has a hard time staying away from drugs. Is there any way for his mom or I to force him to get help for these problems?

Answer

Unfortunately, no. Once someone is using drugs, if they won't get help, then you are left with the choice of either staying or going. If you stay, you already know that you are signing up to be lied to as you watch his drug addict behavior. I hope you get out before this destroys you too.
