| | need an impartial opinion
I am looking for some impartial advice. My mother-in-law has a very annoying boyfriend. Aside from him being generally annoying and unpleasant, he has been a destructive force in her life, as he is a heavy drinker and she is in poor health.
While I have learned to tolerate him at family events that are held at my mother-in-law's home, I was very upset when she brought him to our wedding without him being invited. I didn't say anything at the time (obviously!), but again I decided to let it go. Recently, my mother-in-law showed up at our door, with no warning, with him by her side.
I don't mind my mother-in-law stopping by, but I feel it is about time I set some boundaries with her boyfriend. Is it wrong for me to ask my husband to let his mother know that she is not to bring uninvited guests to our home? Or, perhaps even be explicit about telling her not to invite him?
thanks for your advice!!!
