Hello All, Wishing Everyone a very Happy New Year! This is a thread that encompasses both MIL and Parents. So I don't know what would be a good place to post.. So the thing is I and my MIL don't get along well... No surprises there. She has been living with us for the past two years. Now after 5 years we are going to India. My parents haven't spent time with my 3 year old who was born just before the pandemic. They were here when she was born but not after that. My original plan was to live in India for a few months. But I have had to get a new better paying job to because of MIl's added expenses. That means I have to come back in 3 weeks and so does my daughter. So because I want my parents to spend time with my child and my kid should know her other set of grandparents, I and H decided that MIL and he should be in India for a couple months and my parents should come and stay with me and daughter at our place. This so that MIL won't be alone and it won't feel like I drove her out of the house. Also helps stop wagging tongues from my Inlaws side. They have long tongues and my MIl will definitely portray the situation negatively. My problem - am feeling like I am driving her out of the house. No matter how I feel about her, I don't want to drive her out. I had to wrangle this arrangement from my husband as he was either not willing to 'drive his mother out' or he didn't realize how this issue made me feel. whatever be the case, it was not easy coming to this arrangement for me. My parents are also getting old and the fear of leaving them alone at this age nags me no end. Add to that, they have decided to move into a senior citizen home and that makes me feel like I have abandoned them. Now I am torn between 'driving out my MIL' and 'abandoning' my parents. I had to talk to someone and who better than you at IL? Please provide your insight. Thankyou in Advance!!
