I had a falling out with my nutbar father, didn't talk for years and at some point he told me he had cut me out of his will. We talk again now but I have no idea if I am in his will again. I don't ask because I don't care. Money from him always came with strings attached and I'd rather have nothing. Removing any concern over inheritance means I can base the relationship entirely in the present. Sorry, it's sort of hard to explain but it sort of makes me feel free from him.
My point is, being written out of a will isn't necessarily a bad thing. You can't put a price on happiness.

OP, I'm so glad your DH has seen some sense. It's crucial when it comes to such huge financial matters that you are both on the same page.
Let us know how he goes after he tells them he isn't lending the money. I'm sure their reaction will speak volumes about their character.

I think its best to just say no from the get-go.... I can't even begin to imagine the mess of trying to deal with them later on with it, if things were to not work out. Id rather avoid it all together. If they were normal rational respectful people, then that would be a awesome idea.... but yeah from my experience its really best to keep them at arms length.

Whoops that would teach me for not reading through the threads properly...really sick kiddies at the moment....my idea was if it was upsetting your hubby so much maybe another idea but didnt read that he agreed not to take the loan at all which is a much better idea!!!!
It was funny I was reading it thinking 'this poor woman should speak to the other poor woman with the nutbag neighbour...' surely you have enough craziness in your life....

Absolutely think you have made the right decision.
From what I understand gifted money still counts in the centerlink asset test, so your decision to not take the money won't make a scrap of difference to their eligibility for a pension (if that's their ploy).
It sucks that your SIL may get more than your hubby, but you know what, at the end of the day, you can say you made your own way in life and what an excellent example to set for your children.
