Hi, we are planning to come back to India and settle there. Not yet decided yet. My mental pressure is about living life there. I have to live with my MIL. Hi indus ladies, I will be more happy if anyone of you who returned from USA and settled in India says their REAL experience. I am happy that I can meet my mom, dad, brother and sister.(eventhoug not the same city) I think that I will loose my whole privacy. Here in USA, I get up late, eat bread in the morning, cook for afternoon-whatever i like, browse (sometime while brushing my teeth), browse over net even before starting my cooking, weekend shopping-buy whatever i want, weekend roam and have food in the hotel. I am afraid that I am going to loose all these. Since MIL is with me, --I cannot freely talk with my mom or friends over phone. --I cannot freely talk with my hubby --MIL follows more formalities, so my mom&dad will suffer for day-to-day life, --I should get up early and cook tiffin, --cannot touch the computer (since I have kid, after cooking I have to take care of him) --I have to get menu from my MIL after afternoon lunch --shopping - MIL comes with me always and if I buy some stuffs little costly, she commends and sometimes she asks to buy for our sister-in-laws - so I have to think a lot before buying anything --I love to roam with my hubby and kid, but MIL always aks me to stay @ home. -- I can eat what my MIL says (she comments me that I am eating more) ((I look thin) Am I over imagining? I am afraid all these because when she stayed with us in US she did all these. Moreover huband - I am not feeling free to move with him when my MIL is there. I have to be more careful in handling words. Or, should I think like, It is time to change myself. Most of the indian women who settled in India are like this only. I am lucky that I am enjoying USA life. Oh... I am toooo confused... Can anyone help me. I cannot even ask his friends wifes who settled in India since they cannot say it open. PPLllllllllllease help me.
