Hi ladies, I’ve been a silent reader and been loving it here. I’ve been married for less than 2 years but been in relationship with my hubby for like5 years now. We both studied here and are in good stable jobs. Although we were (and still are) earning good salaries, our savings weren’t quite upto scratch as we saved a bit for our wedding, honeymoon and getting a car, furnishings etc. Recently, my parents sold their property and decided to retire. My sister is yet to be married but they were quite confident that the sale proceeds from the property could comfortably get her married and also be sufficient for their retirement. My sister earns too and we are a very close knit family. My sister and I would chip in to help my parents if needed as well. My husband is a very nice person (having read some of the posts here!). He is very respectful towards my parents, lets me spend on little things, helps in the kitchen and what not. He does have his quirks like spending too much time on movies but definitely outweighs his good nature. When my parents visited my recently, they offered to give my hub and I a loan towards purchase of a property for us. This was close to 17 lakhs and I was very uncomfortable to take this from them as my sister might be getting married soon. I had a chat with them and they agreed to talk to my husband too and explain that they are only looking to get the 7 lakhs as a priority and the remaining 10 lakhs can either be a gift for me or we could choose to pay it slowly. Me being the overprotective daughter agreed that I would repay the 10 lakhs too in the coming years. They explained all this to my hub and he agreed that he would arrange something from his side to repay the 7 lakhs immediately. A little about my husband, he’s the second of two sons to his parents and he’s got a big house as his share of inheritance. His parents are still lviign in that house and that house is probably worth around 1 crore. I’ve been insisting him to sell this off and also get a nice place for his parents in the same area as this house is large and is also getting hard for them to maintain. This way we could also get some buffer to pay for the maintenance of his parents and also repay my parents. His dad does have a medical condition which has made him very emotional and has been avoiding this talk. My husband’s argument is that the house that he has inherited is their family home for the past 60 years and he feels like he is ‘kicking out’ his parents of their house. I’ve never suggested him to stop paying or put his parents in aged care. We are overseas and would probably never get to live in their family home ( it has to be sold either today or 50 years later). Fast forward, we’ve got the property we wanted and my parents have found a suitable match for my sister too. Altho my parents haven’t asked us pay the 7 lakhs back for the wedding, I’m extremely guilty of my husband not contributing anything from his side. My parents have paid for my education and haven’t expected me to pay for their visits or maintenance either. We are also in a position to save a bit more to construct the property so sending money from my earnings is not even possible. This is causing so much friction between my husband and I and I just keep getting angry with him for not selling his house. Am I being unreasonable?
