Re: Wife's mom is living with us
Sounds like you and your wife need to sit down and have a discussion about what is best for your marriage. Having your MIL live with you is most definitely an option, but if the relationship is toxic, NO one is happy or healthy. That kind of conflict takes its toll on health, mental health and marriage. If they cannot get along, and your home be an oasis, than there are other options. Your MIL can live in a little senior community apartment where she will be with other people she can interact with. You and your wife can live close by so that there are good solid boundaries and you can care for her yet - not live in a toxic environment. I applaud your wife for wanting to care for her mother, but there are limits and boundaries that need to be intact for all to be whole.
