Needing advise...hard decision to make -so bit of back-story... DH's parents are splitting up, it is a bit messy (affairs, DV & emotional abuse accusations on both sides) & MIL went off to another country for 3months with a new bloke & is due back in a week or so. DH has been treated a bit like "piggy in the middle" by his parents (which he resents both of them for) & I'm trying to keep as far out of it as I can.
MIL today sent DH a message asking if she can stay with us for a bit when she gets back. She has no job, although has mentioned looking for one in our city. BIL thinks she might have flights booked back overseas but no one knows what her plans are & she has lied about them before.
I just spent 10 mins having a mini freak-out in the bathroom at work after DH told me about it. We're going to discuss it later at home but I'm worried sick "a few days" will turn into weeks (DH isn't happy either but feels guilty at the idea of not helping his mum).
MIL also will just do stuff (our washing, cleaning etc) around the house without asking (which I have big personal space issues about) & has been warned about giving too much stuff to DD (3.5) before.
I don't mind her but we have polar opposite personalities & any more than a few days... Toss into the mix I'm 5 months pregnant...
How do you go about ILs wanting to stay open ended??
