How do you deal with living with your in laws when your husband is happy with the arrangement and you aren't?

He thinks its okay for them to live with us for free and do whatever they want and not sacrifice anything but we have to sacrifice stuff all the time. He's okay with it and I'm tired of it, but he told me he would never leave them...

  • First off all it might be part of his culture. If its not then he has issues in my opinion. This cant be something that was just sprung on you when you got married.

  • personally, I've been there and it eventually creates problems in your relationship. it's not that you don't love your in laws. but you can't stay there forever. two families don't mix well in the long run. try to explain to your hubby that you guys need your own family
