So what I’m inferring is that your FI is a trucker. His trucking wasn’t making enough so he was going to get a different job so you guys could be more stable. Your in-laws then decided to loan him $1000. I hope I’m getting that right.

Did your FI talk to you about taking the money or did he take the money and then tell you? Are you positive they expect you to pay it back or could it have possibly been a gift? If your FI will not listen to you over his parents that is your first problem. You guys are becoming a family and it now needs to be about your family and life not what his parents think is best.

Is your FI still planning to get a new job or is he hoping this $1000 will boost his trucking business? The two of you need to have a serious conversation about your finances and expectations. Finances are the most fought about portion of a marriage and something the two of you need to be in line with together. Without further information I would think your in-laws were trying to do something nice or help your son out. They weren’t trying to undermine your financial over hall, how could they have known. This is more an issue with your FI then your in-laws.
