What would you do?

What would you do if your FIL was hitting on you and asking for sexual favors while your hubby's at work? What would you do if he found an excuse to walk into the bathroom while you were taking a shower (in a house that has two other full baths)? What would you do if when you told your hubby and your hubby confronted him, he deigned it?

As a side note our house had dangerous levels of lead so we had to move out and we're staying with my in-laws for a few months while we deal with our house. We are staying rent free, they only ask we help with household chores, cooking, cleaning ect.

  • Apparently he expects a little something else too! I applaud ou for telling your dh immediately, so many women are afraid or ashamed to tell when things like this happen. I advise no showers while dh isn't there, even if it means getting up super early. You have to protect yourself, there is no telling what he might do. I'd be looking for another relative to stay with, this could turn so ugly!

  • well you could always secretly tape him when he is hitting on you. and then show it to your husband maybe? and tell your FIL that if he doesn't stop doing that, then you can tell him you have proof and you'll show it to his wife?

  • WOW i would set up secret cameras, lock the door, confront the MIL, confront the FIL, and if possible get the hell out of there. That's disgusting. And I don't know if the walking in on you crap is illegal in any way but sounds like it should be. I would treat him like any other unwelcome pervert hitting on me and trespassing in my personal space. Gross

  • Get it out in the family and threaten to go to the police about sexual harassment if he doesn't stop.
