Would you live on the same street as your in-laws?
I lived 5 minutes from mine at one point and while I do love my in-laws, living so close to them was not pleasant. My mother in-law would come into my house whenever she wished, even when I was busy doing something or had something planned with the kids, there just were no boundaries, and whenever they wanted to do something with us we were expected to just go along with it, regardless if we wanted to participate.
We don't live so close now. I can only say, distance makes the heart grow fonder... at least in my case it has.
No. I don't want anyone that close to me.
Yes, I would. But probably no if it was my parents!
We are actively trying to get my MIL to move to an apartment complex about 1/2 mile away. I would love to have her here.
