First off, a little background on my MIL : I love her I really do.. she is very nice, she is 60 years old and is the head nurse at the small hospital in her town (for over 30 years) , unfortunatly those are really the only nice things I can say right now.
She ( and FIL ) have 4 kids ( my husband is the youngest) The other 3 are all druggies, drunks, no jobs, and have several children by several people.
His oldest brother is over 20 years older than my husband and so he has a son who is my age ( 24) , and he also has 2 younger children... all 3 of these children live with MIL ... She has no control over any of them, the younger ones are horrible acting, destroy everything, and are just plain bad acting.
The real problem is the oldest one - my husbands nephew ( the one that is my age ) , he and my husband were pretty much raised as brothers , until they were teens and nephew went back to his mom and got involved with drugs and that kind of mess. My husband grew up the right way ( job, family that he takes care of, nice house, and lives a decent family life) ...
nephew drives MIl and FIl crazy ... Fil even had a heart attack over the stress caused by him ! He has been to jail 3 times for drugs and theft, he has people out at the house constantly threatning to beat him up because he stole drugs or money....
My husband took my kids there yesterday ( i had surgery friday and so he thought it would be nice for me to rest) .... when he came home he told me he SEEN nephew selling drugs to a car right in front of the house, while my husband and the kids were 15 ft. away playing....AND MIL says she KNOWS the house is being watched by the police....
I told my husband that we will not go back there until he is completely moved out of their house... They can come up to see us whenever they want and even stay a weekend if they want ( we live an hour away) ... but we just will NOT got there while he is there.
My husband is upset because now his family is mad at this...
REALLY ? we are being the selfish ones because we are thinking of our children over a druggie ??

guns & drugs go together. I wouldn't let my kids anywhere near a situation like that. Shoot I told my brother if he can't control his swearing around my kids than I don't want him around them. So yeah I wouldn't allow this drug stuff
