    When the little pigs need their overcoats to fly over hell, I'd consider it.

    I have, in the earlier stages of our relationship. Ain't no way in hell I would do it now.

    She's too negative and would bring me down far too much for me NOT to stab her to death.

    when you look out your window and notice purple flying pigs you will realise I have let my MIL move in.

    There is no way, no how...not ever, no matter what!

    I've told df at various times he's suggested that we live with their parents short term to get ahead that it would end very badly for us.

    I find his family difficult, he loves them but to him they're intolerable, so it would be him and them shouting at each other, him stomping out and staying out and away as much as possible and me left with them and the kids awkwardly trying to pretend that didn't just happen. A day, a week, a month, - maybe. Longer I'd end up leaving him.

    When I've described to df how I think it would go down he can't fault my logic. Lol.

    MIL is a lovely lady, she's helped us a lot and we are grateful for all she's done for us. She's very stubborn as in she's always right in everything. I like her but we are not close. I feel extremely uncomfortable when I am with her alone as none of is have anything to talk about and I can't relax whenever she comes to visit.
    She's old and alone. She's currently staying with her single mother daughter and is helping out with her household and etc but she doesn't get a lot of respect there and she's pretty much not wanted even though she helps out a LOT financially. DHs brother doesn't want to live with her either.
    DH loves her mother and have always said that if we have a bigger house he wouldn't mind living with his mom. But we have a very small house, if I open the bedroom door I can see the whole house! Kitchen lounge room etc. it's very open! Kids share rooms, and there's just no space in the house because we also work from home etc.
    she has mentioned recently she wants to move with us.
    I don't know what to say
    If we have a big house and she can have her own little lounge room and kitchen and seperate toilet I think I am more inclined to do so. But I think I would go mad if I let her move in now. I told DH straight No. And he was surprised at my response.
    Now I am feeling so selfish ;( but I don't want to have my son sleep with MIL every night in the same bed (that would be the arrangement ), or I not able to sit on the couch and watch what I want to watch or worry about what to eat everyday because it's not just is anymore. Also all the things we do at home eg walk around in undies, let the house be messy, sit on the couch with legs up high, etcetc
    Urrggh don't know what to do.
