  • Not really, after the wedding you need to get to know each other all over again, you need your privacy etc, I don't think it is a good idea even if you do get along with the in laws.

  • Good idea or not if it is the best option then that is where you go. Nothing says it has to be a permanent situation.

  • Not sure if that is ever a good idea.

  • it depends.....if you just need some place to stay while you find a house to buy (and already have the money saved, approved for financing, etc.) then i think it's fine. if you are looking at living there while you are just starting to save then i would not advise that.

  • No, not unless you absolutely HAVE TO. If you can't afford to have your own apartment or house, maybe you need to wait a while and save money to get your own place.

  • Is it ever a good idea to move in with the inlaws? I love mine but it would be out of sheer desperation if I moved in with them.

  • In my head, I screamed NO DON'T DO IT!!!!

  • No, the new couple needs space.. Moving in with in-laws should be a last resort when things get tight.. Job loss, death, sickness etc.. Not hey, lets get married and move in with your parents kinda thing..KWIM

    I know in some cultures it is standard, but if it's not part of your culture I say.. get your own place..
