WOMAN DOESN’T WANT MUM-IN-LAW TO MOVE IN, TOO MUCH “HORROR STORIES” ONLINE

The possibility of staying with MIL

Advertisements

Hi all, would like to seek some advice regarding my situation.

I am staying with my spouse in our own apartment as we both agreed on not having either of our family members to stay with us. However, my spouse has recently brought up the possibility of having their mother to stay with us because she is a single mother who is living alone.

While I am able to empathise with my spouse, I am also hesitant and reluctant to have my privacy taken away. Being unable to feel comfortable in my own space is really sad. Reading so many horror stories of staying together with the MIL further affirms my stand of not wanting my MIL to live with us.

I have voiced out my thoughts and my spouse is not very happy about it, obviously. Somehow, I can’t help but feel that it is unfair on my part to have to accept this change in the near future.

Other suggestions provided are: to visit the MIL more frequently, to engage a helper to help out with house chores and to inform us if anything happens when we are not around, have the other siblings play a part in this as well.

While it has yet to happen, my MIL has also been dropping hints on moving in with us. I am really at a loss. What can I do to make this situation better for everyone?

Thanks for reading.
