I did mention, once again, that it costs them a lot of money just to come up here to see their grandchildren. She responded that we give them a free place to stay, so it's practically like vacation time for them.
Dude, don't justify it. Don't discuss it. Just tell your wife that "I am not asking my parent's for money. I don't want money from your parents. I don't want anyone giving me money becuase they will tell me how to live my life." Don't ever say anything but this in relation to parents and money.
