WTF???? Are you serious?

So I just have to vent.  A little back story and I'll try not to make this too long. 

Dh and I have lived with his parents for 5 years now while he has finished college, and tried to pursue his dream of becoming a vet.  He has also been working during this time.  Unfortunately at this moment the vet thing is not working out for him, so he has decided to pursue his MBA online.  We have decided to FINALLY buy a house of our own and we've been looking.  So last night I get home from work and he is looking at homes with his parents.  Then about 15 minutes later they find a huge house with lots of land that is just a little above our price range.  Then my father in law suggests that we buy the house and they move in with us to help us pay it, while he rents out his paid off house!!!  Then my DH gets all excited and asks me what I thought about it.  I was livid!!!  We'll be 30 years old next year and I am DONE living with his parents.   I have two little kids and all his mother ever does is interfere with how we raise them.  Dh is always complaining about her, so wtf???  Then they were saying that they could rent out my father in law's house to my sister in law that is struggling and everyone will win and be happy.  No!!!  I won't be happy.  Anyway, I certainly gave dh my two cents and I will not be doing that.  I have been more than patient with what he wants to do, but I'm drawing the line here.  It's time for us to move out and live our lives.  5 years is an awful long time to be living with the in laws don't you think???

Dh is a good guy, he just had a moment of weakness.  I'm just venting.  Thanks for reading.

I don't blame you one bit....We bought our first home when i was 22 and DH was 25 and we have not lived with our parents since DH was 18 and i was 16...I could not imagine living with either of our parents unless it was to care for them

I agree with you 100% it gets so annoying living wit parents yours or in laws they constantly interfere I could not do it for 5 years especially any longer than that! You need your own space for you to have your family... my mil stayed at our house for a few month while lookin for a house I was going crazy I love my mil to death but you need your own space

So needless to say, today I'm a little pissed at DH.  He knows how much this means to me, so for him to even suggest it and think I'd be okay with it, makes me wonder how much my unhappiness means to him.  I feel like slapping him on the back of the head, lol.

Go ahead and slap him girly...lol j/k don't wanna promote spousal abuse. Hehe. I know exactly what ur going though my hubby and I moved in with my folks multiple times after we had our first baby. We were adjusting financially to the baby and his transition from the army to a civilian job, we tried an apt. But couldnt quite cut it so we moved back a 2nd time...holy hell is all I can say...finally after some super smart money finangling I convinced him we could buy our own home, to keep him interested and away from the parental tit. I kept reminding him of how nice it would be to streak naked through our own house and bump uglies wherever we wanted, when the children allowed of course, and since my parents loved being so involved in our child raising we would have a place to take them when we needed a whole night of "us time" it worked wonders on his psyche.
