  • I would only do it if you have your own living area. My family (Me, hubby, and my daughter) moved in with my in-laws and it wasn't really a bad experience because we had our own living space. We had the whole upstairs to ourselves, which had a living room and 2 bedrooms. I think if we all had to share the same living space all the time it would have felt awkward. Don't get me wrong, my in-laws were great, but having your own space is great.

  • I would do it because it's a great oportunity (sp?) to save money. I used to live with my MIL for a little while and we butted heads a lot but we get along so we could sit down and talk when things started getting a little tense. It does take some work but I think it will be worth it.
