My parents have found out we they are expecting their 2nd grandchild over the moon and beyond proud grandparents.
They are now questioning what we plan to do about our current living situation. I know it's none of their business, but it came up in convo - i was complaining about the crappy carpet and a few other maintenence issues that havent been fixed up yet. I was just annoyed because rent increases yet things dont get fixed.
We are not in a position to buy yet. We have a credit card debt and are paying a new car off. We dont have any substansial savings, dh works his **** off at a decent earning job, he was even thinking of a 2nd job, but i told him id rather go back to work than him juggle 2 jobs. He is more than happy for me to stay at hom for at least 2 yrs and raise our children and im fine with that too. So i am a SAHM studying and pregnant.
Here is the hard bit. My parents have offered to pay our house deposit. My dad explained he had to work 2 jobs to buy their house and he believes everyone should work hard for what they want. But then he said "your my family, with a family. DH doing the best he can with what he can. Forking out a **** load of his hard earned money every forghtnight to pay some prick who wont replace a piece of carpet. He said he has the money, just sitting there. We could be in our own home whenever we want.
Then my mum went on to say she knew some ppl who would have their homes if it wasnt for their parents.
i just dont know what to do. I want my family in our own home so bad. We just cant afford it and cant seem to work any harder or save any more than we are. And then we get given this offer....it just sounds so wrong. Of course we pay my dad back the deposit money. It feels like the easy way out.
what would you do?
