 Back in June it was discovered that my mother in law was 2 months behind on her rent and about to be evicted so my husband and I paid her back rent for her . On Monday she got another eviction notice because she's 2 months behind again , the last payment they received was from us . My husband suggest that we just let her move in with us , my instant response without even thinking was hell no . I do have plenty of room and could accommodate her if I wanted to but I simply don't want to .  There is only room for 1 adult woman in my home and that's me . Does this make me a bad person or a bad wife ? She has to money to pay her rent but she would rather spend it on drugs and alcohol BTW .

Nope, even without her addictions.

That sounds like a hot mess.  It's just going to give her a license to do drugs and get drunk in your home.

Does your husband really want that type of behavior in his home, around his children?

Nope. Your home--you do not have to share it.

Let her get evicted and then help her pay for rehab.  Moving in with you is not an option.  She's completely taking advantage.

Nope im the same way! Im the queen of my house and thats that.. Dd (13) tries and it dont get her to far. Not to mention if your dh knows she spends her money on drugs and alcohol why would he want that type of influence around his children

I wouldn't either unless it was a separate apartment inside the house.
