I've had my Dad and my FIL live with us in the past. My Dad moved in first, then out. Then back in and FIL moved in. It sucked. My Dad was hardly ever here, but he didn't help out with any household chores or finances. FIL was the same, but also stayed up my butt 24/7, went against our rules with our kids, didn't clean up after himself, blew smoke in my house, was extremely nosey like watching us while we were on the computer. He also made comments about what I ate, what I watched on tv, what I cooked for dinner, etc. In short, it was a living HELL. The man drove me insane and it was worse because I was pregnant at the time! As for my marriage, it was strained. We argued all the time because neither of us wanted to hurt our Dad's feelings by telling them it was time to move on, so we lashed out at each other.
