I do not think you’re insane for living with your MIL. You’re saving money and focusing on building your future together. No harm in that. The nails are gross, but my FI throws his behind the couch.. makes me crazy. My hair falls out all the time, I try to keep it up while I cook but that doesn’t mean a stray one doesn’t find its way into the food sometimes. It happens. I don’t think those are deal breakers by any means. And folding your laundry, well don’t leave it sitting in the dryer. She’s trying to be helpful. You are lucky she’s gone for 2/3 of the month.

Would I ever be able to do it? Not my MIL’s house, it’s filled with people and animals. But if my parents were still together I’d move back in with them if we had to. I’m sure my FI would just LOVE that lol.

@Ryansgirl:  With my own MIL, no way in hell would I be able to live with her. I can’t stand an hour long visit. But your MIL? I don’t think she sounds horrible to live with, especially if she’s gone a lot. Have you told her you appreciate the help with clothes but you would prefer if you could do it yourself? I know it is her home, but it is still your private stuff, and you can ask nicely to not have your laundry folded.

Not sure what you can do about the other stuff. Pretty much just grin and bear it the best you can until you secure your own place. Good luck!
