Yes, he should have been up front with you if he never intended to comply, but this is someone else’s house. If his folks don’t want him to install a lock or a new door or whatever else, it is their call. You are staying with them, and that is a favor to you. If you want privacy, don’t live with your/his parents. Again, your DH should have been honest with you, but it is only three weeks and his parents own the place. Take a deep breath and be thankful you don’t have to rent a hotel for three weeks.

It’s only 3 weeks. He should have been up front with you but I mean it’s not like he can lock them out of their house.

megrays :  He can just buy a new door knob that has the ability to lock from the inside. Don’t stress bee, I know it is frustrating but it is only 3 weeks. I would’ve been mad if my husband never intended to do something and went along with it thinking it’d get swept under the rug and it isn’t right and I think that’s what you need to focus on when speaking to him, not about the lock itself.

megrays :  you said it yourself. It’s three weeks. Suck it up and deal. 

That aside, he seems not to respect your needs. I can’t imagine this is the first incidence of this ever in your relationship.

megrays :  it’s still their property. It will be okay. Your bigger issues is your fiancé downplaying your request. He should have been honest with you. Let him know in a marriage it’s better to upfront about things.

Have you confronted him about how utterly ridiculous that excuse is? As in, “Oh come on babe, we both know that this isn’t about fire safety. I’m hurt because I feel like you’ve been ignoring my wishes, and I really need you to be honest with me.”
