Aaaa.... is your best friend a lady? It's hard to follow your story because I can't find a 'her' or a 'she' somewhere and ended up rather confused. And are you seeking advice or feedback, or simply sharing this troubling story?

Why quarrel about money? why not find a solution to look for money or earn the money and make the money work for you?

Personally if a spouse is very spendthrift, I will opt for separate savings account.

So they are gay couple? Typo error?

I'll say if his husband want to give some money for his brother to squander, then he should not interfere too much as they are sibling and there is an emotional bonding part that no logical thinking can transcend. Although, logically, is true, what is the point of giving money to a guy that only know how to squander life but remember they are close siblings...
