Quoting l☮j:" Well, come mid April, we'll be living with DH's family. I've got no problems with his family, we get ... [snip!] ... gone to college, so they're pretty much empty nesters. So I think it'll be good for them too, to have the grandkids around "
Quoting Chim Richalds:" Make sure you have an actual discussion about who is in charge of which types of housework, buying food, cooking, who decides what to eat and when, Tv time, etc."Oh good idea. We'll definitely get that figured out.
Quoting Bogey Woman:" You're going to get advice no matter what, unfortunately it's their house and their rules...I lucked ... [snip!] ... can get...um...tense, we'll say, if the in laws start treating your husband like he's still a kid. Only ran into that once lol"Honestly, religion is one of the main things I'm kinda worried about. They don't go to church, but they are Christians, and FIL loves to use proverbs and stuff as "life lessions". I pretty much just decided I'm going to adopt a "smile and nod" mentality, because DH and I both don't follow any sort of religion.
Quoting SavageDarling🌙:" We moved in with my inlaws "temporarily" when my son was 6months old, we ended up staying for three years ... [snip!] ... They were only ever helpful and unloved being able to have a glass of wine and making dinner with my mil at the end of the day."Our kids are 2.5 yrs and 16 months, so they're definitely in that stage where they can start learning how to help out (well, DD already does) around the house and learning rules and stuff.
Quoting K65:" I lived with my inlaws while my husband was deployed, but I didnt have children so its definitely different ... [snip!] ... if my hubby gets out of the military till we save up money for a new place, and honestly Im excited, I love being around them"I'm really excited about not having rent, lol. We already made an agreement that we wouldn't have to pay rent, but we're definitely going to throw them something to help out, besides getting groceries and stuff
Quoting l☮j:" I'm really excited about not having rent, lol. We already made an agreement that we wouldn't have to ... [snip!] ... honestly can't wait. We're living in our own house here, but the kids, and us, we'll have such a better life where we're going."
Quoting ♥ Mrs. S ♥:" We lived with DH's mom for over a year while we saved for our first house. I think you're going to get ... [snip!] ... way?" I would suggest not hanging around the house ALL of the time, making sure you all get out and have separated activities. "Good advice.
Quoting K65:" Yeah I didnt have to pay rent but I gave them about $100 a month just to help out because I knew the ... [snip!] ... now. And now we are having a baby and they wont get to see her too often. Good luck, I hope everything works out great for you!"Where we are now, we are 19 hours away from his family, and it's killing him and the kids.
