My older brother is married to a hag that cost him his job and his mental health. Their constant problems have been a nonstop drain on the finance of my parents and myself.

My younger brother is getting a masters in art, but he's having trouble getting recognized because he's starting to encounter the SJW element present in the art world. Because his work isn't blatant anti-Trump bullshit or feminist vagina art, he's getting passed over by a lot of big galleries.

I'm working fulltime and getting decent pay, and living at home is saving me a ton of money, but only I can't afford to live on my own in this shitty state. Even shitty apartments will run 1k a month plus utilities, effectively leaving me in a position where it would be impossible to save up enough money to eventually move somewhere nicer.. and if I move somewhere else, that means giving up the only good job I've ever had or losing more of my life to commuting.. Which I can't fucking do because I've developed some fucking fatigue condition that leaves me so fucking tired after a day of work that I start dozing at the wheel with only a 30 minute commute.

I want to quit everything and go live out in the middle of nowhere with my meager life savings and be a NEET, but if I leave home, I'm essentially fucking over every single person in my family, because I'm their fucking safety net.

Let's be honest here, there's only two ways this is going to end for you; either you and everyone else cuts them off and they get it together or you spend the rest of your life paying for their shit.

I got no idea about the other two though.

The way things are going, she's either going to end up in jail, killing herself, or trying to kill my brother. There's a lot of marital drama in our family, and I think my older brother is trying not to become another divorce story… Or he doesn't trust her not to try and bankrupt him.

The art world is incredibly corrupted, but there are still many people out there who are willing to pay for genuine beauty. The key to becoming a successful artist is having good connections, so the good news is that it'll get easier the older he gets, but he has a long road ahead of him. Tell him to get good at networking, because that's half the battle. Maybe he could try selling his stuff online, bypassing the gatekeepers.

Your older brother is screwed. Sorry, but that's how it is. Whether he stays with her or he divorces her, his life will be ruined. This is why you should never marry. I hope you don't end up making his same mistake, OP.

There's not much you can do at the moment, especially if you want to be a good guy and support your family. Keep saving as much money as you can, maybe try asking for a raise. Wait for things to get better (or worse). They always do.
