My aunts living with us

And it's driving me insane!!

She moved in cause she wanted to get a better job and life so my parents pretty much offered her to live at hubby's and my house, but it's been over a month and she has no job and every interview she bombs.

she's my aunt and is very nice I can't just kick her out. But we have no privacy at all, she's always out in the living room with us, has breakfast with us, dinner with us ugh! We have to be so quiet now having sex too and can't ever even have discussions unless we're outside really..
We were hoping she would have a job right now cause she's always had one but it's like she's enjoying doing nothing a little too much.

Right now she's in the living room with us and I just wish she would go back upstairs!

I would consider it a privilege to have my elders staying with us. That is just me though.

Wait. Your parents offered your place to her??? What's up with that? And why didn't they offer their own place?

We stay with my grandmother who has Alzheimer's & dementia. Kudos to you 'cause I'm ready to scream. As soon as my aunt gets her things situated, we're leaving, & she's coming here.

Talk to her and be honest, tell her that you need more privacy and it's nothing personal.

Your parents probably offered your place instead of theirs because they knew how she was... family or not they've gotta pull their own weight around the house too, unless disabled and not able to.. seems as though she's taking advantage of you and your husband..

My parents during the summer stay in their rv. My parents have a confusing situation lol. My dad owns a company where hubby and I are but during the winter they take off back to our old state where their home is.. So ya they offered our home to my aunt and didn't realize she wouldn't get a job or that she would always be here!

Regardless, they made an offer that wasn't theirs to make. You may want to speak to them about that and if they don't get it, let them know that you're going to be offering your aunt a job at your dad's company.
