    Default Do you / would you live with your MIL

    If you do, how's it going?
    If you don't, would you?
    Like to hear your thoughts
    Thanks!

    I have, and it wasn't bad, but I definitely wouldn't now that I have DS. We would butt heads for sure!

    No I don't and never would.
    It just would be super uncomfortable and awkward. We do not see eye to eye on much (especially parenting) and are not close at all.

    Twice. Six months at her house (in Fiji). That for the most was fine, I loved my time over there. Second time was her in our house and it drove me nuts!! She did not give me the same respect I gave her when I was in her house. Don't get me started on all the things she did that annoyed me lol

    No way. Mostly because of her DP.

    I don't and I wouldn't even consider it. She's lovely don't get me wrong. But i just wouldn't do it. I once lived with an x and his mother and it was a nightmare.

    Mine is staying with us atm. She has been here two days and the kids are already playing up and out of routine. We get along fairly well, and she is very helpful, but long term, no way.

    I haven't but would consider it short term if we were in between houses and could save on rent. I'm lucky she is lovely and I actually clash with my mum a lot more!

    I like my (x) MIL but I wouldn't be able to live with her. I think she lets her youngest son walk all over her too much.
