@missbumblebee:  Pretty fair vent. I can see how it bothers you. Stick to your guns. Too  many people live way beyond their means.

It sounds like he’s projecting.  You’re being reasonable with your spending and he never was, so he’s encouraging you to make bad decisions like you did.  Although 4 bedroom homes are the norm in my area, 3 bd is not a small house.  With that 15 year mortgage you are probably getting a prime interest rate. 

I find in life that those who have the least room to talk always find the most to say.

@missbumblebee:  No, I get why you’re frustrated. You said he bought a lake house etc, maybe he considers himself to be an ‘expert’ on these things? He was being hypocritical but I would just shrug it off unless he mentions it again. It was just an assholey (hopefully) throw away comment from your Father in Law, you have plenty of time to estrange yourself from him later. If you want to get under his skin though, maybe ask him how the retirement fund is going. 

In the mean time, enjoy your lovely home.

That would annoy me too! DH’s dad has made some similar comments to us and it drives me insane. Your house sounds like a very good size.. definitely not small! Just ignore him. It sounds like you & your husband are very happy and that is all that matters 🙂 don’t let anyone else bring you down!
