DH has been trying to persuade me to move in with his mom 75 years for 1 year in her house. She's currently living alone.
DH and I always wanted to buy a new house. Bigger. But because we are self employeed, getting a loan has been difficult.
So MIL came up with the idea saying that we should move in with her that way we can save some money (don't know how we suppose to save money) and sell our current house (which is mortgage free). And then wait for a year, when the market is better then we can get a bigger house. Or rent out or current house and save up the rent. So when going for a loan it shows we have steady rental, income as well as a business and property.
And another advantage is that our current house has a caveat on it from MIL which she will remove when we get a new one.
I really don't want to move in with her into her house. She's nice and reserved enough but she's also stubborn and babies my DD way too much. We have 3 kids and I can already see an authority issue happening.
Eg DD is a fussy eater and she wouldn't eat dinner. So MIL would go and give her ice cream. I said no ice cream until she's had her dinner and MIL would continue to give it to her while saying you can't starve her, they put you in jail for it and it's only ice cream, if she won't eat anything else this would fatten her up.
DH thinks I am being stupid if I don't want to do it.
What would you do?
