I moved into my husband's 4bed house when we got married in July. I just finished law school and my loans are crazy so I have to wait a few years before we get a new house. His mother has lived with him the past 3 years due to financial/ "health" issues (She's only 58 and I think she's way too needy for her age). I won't go into detail about this b/c I'm learning to let my resentment go esp b/c once my LO arrives we won't have child care costs or have to worry about daycare treatment.
Moving on...at 1 pt his sister & her children lived with him too. Well they no longer do but never changed their address and still have a key. They come and go whenever they like and it drives me INSANE. His sister is 15 yrs older than us and thinks this house is partly hers because she helped him decorate & gave him financial advice. (just an old bitter lonely woman.) After 7 years of knowing me they don't like me now b/c he and I had a fallout last yr about living with his mom so she doesn't even speak now when she comes. Even though his family does NOTHING to help us with his mom. Interesting right!!?
Well I am private and like to be left alone when I'm home but he's a helper and let's ppl pretty much do whatever they want. I plan to discuss this key situation with him and I know ppl's families can be touchy subjects (it has in the past) so I'm trying to find the best way to approach this. If it doesn't change I will seriously go crazy and want to leave. Any suggestions??
