  • I gained almost 30 pounds when we lived with my inlaws. My MIL deep fries everything I was not allowed to cook in her kitchen (but I could clean it every night!) and I eat when I'm nervous and she makes me incredibly nervous. Also, I stayed away as much as I could. Mainly, I was miserable the entire time we lived there.

  • I'd sleep on the street B4 I'd spend one single night w/ mine

    My husband and I when our kids were VEEEEERY small lived in a duplex w/ my parents. We had our own kitchens, entrances and exits and stuff. He hated it sometimes but loved having a built in sitter/helper

  • If you don't have a good relationship with them then you shouldn't. Even if you do it would be good to try to just be on your own because when you live with other adults especially parents they can treat you like a child more so then a roomate.

  • We live with my parents (well, just my dad and uncle right now) and it works out ok. We have our own space and we can come and go as we please. My dad and uncle are pretty easy going. Now, when my mom was here, it was a little dicey, but we made it work.
