Dh and I have been in an argument lately...tell me who you think is right or wrong...or how you would feel...etc.
My MIL lives about 2 blocks away. She lives with her new hubby of about 5 years (NOT my dh dad) also her brother who is 56....div0rced, no girlfriend, no intention of finding his own place. Also her sister 59 years old....who is clinically depressed, bipolar, has tried to commit suicide 3 times, and has RECENTLY had homicidal thoughts and dreams!!!
MIL and her sister were sexually abused growing up....not sure about brother....dont know if he was or had any involment in any way...no one talks a lot about the past (of course)
So....argument is about our 7 year old spending the night with MIL. I have a HUGE problem with this...b/c of safety. I am afraid of aunt who has mental illness and homicidal thoughts....I am afraid of uncle and aunt who experienced sexual abuse....I am also frusterated by the fact that the house is VERY small....maybe 1000 square feet...only 2 bedroom.....son would have to sleep on couch.....
DH is adamant that I am being unfair to HIS family. B/c the kids DO spend the night with my parents....who ....(just to be blunt) are normal and still married after 30 years.
What do you think....would you allow this....do you think DH has point or is crazy?
