    Perhaps she is trying to get rid of you guys and this is her way of showing it? Maybe she's just as peeved at you for taking over her house as you are at her for not doing her bit.

    You'll never know unless you all discuss.

    Maybe she thinks along the lines of 'fine, you can live here but don't expect any help from me'. I guess that's her prerogative (if that's the right word).

    Not saying that she's right and you're wrong, just saying perhaps look at it from her perspective..

    hi, the way i see it, there are three adults in the house. Why cant you all sit down around the kitchen table and make a roster/terms of living. As it is your MIL house, she should be able to tell you what she expects from you and her son, and what she is willing to offer. The same for you and your partner. There is so much more to living together than just who pays for what. I would be getting rid of the foxtel immediately, that is the biggest waste of money, for anyone. The adults in the house should be able to discuss all these issues and make some compromises so there is no tension in the house at all. Also look at making a savings plan, so you can have some timeframe for when you will be able to move out. marie.
