Since I’m kind of a homebody/hermit, I wouldn’t like it. Now if they only came over every so often, I wouldn’t mind.

Eh, I think it would be fine. So long as it’s not a from sun up to sun down sort of visit daily 🙂

I wouldn’t care who it was as long as it wasn’t my mother…. she’d move into our home if she had the chance.

@Jellybones:  At first I’d probably think it was great, but I think I would be quick to set some ground rules.

I don’t like it when people just drop by. I’d worry that we’d be spending way too much time with them just because they’re there.

We found our “happy place”–20 minutes away from my parents, 2 hours away from his, and I want to keep it that way. Not because if they lived closer I’d have to clean, but because I don’t particularily like his parents.

That being said as long as your in laws aren’t there all the time (which I doubt they will be because they have their own life) it shouldn’t be too bad. You just have to tidy up a little bit, not full out cleaning spree.

I would be ok with depending on which in-laws are moving in.  I’d love if it my father-in-law and DH’s stepmom moved closer since Darling Husband is much closer to them.  I think Darling Husband will probably like having them nearby.

@Jellybones:  Depends on how well I get along with them.  Me and my SIL do not get along and I really can’t stand her. So if she was moving close to me then I would honestly move.  But I think that if we got along fine then it would be a great thing.

@Jellybones:  SIL lives about 10 minutes away and our house is on her way home from work.  It has done wonders for my housekeeping skills.  But I’m still not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.

I would be exceedingly unhappy. Although I adore Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law, the FBILs and FSILs are merely tolerated. I am polite when I seee them but they are not my kind of people.

Oh man, I would LOVE it if my sister and her hubs would live closer to us.

I think that I would enjoy if my BILs and SILs live close.  They understand that “everything” doesnt get done all the time… (for example, the floors arent mopped every week and the whole house isnt dusted)  I’m sure youll slowly but surely get used to each other and be comfortable enough to have your house “normal” when they come over.

Our house seems to be the weekend house so we have our friends (which include brothers and cousins) over almost every weekend for game nights or just to hangout. At first I thought I had to clean like the Queen Mother was coming over but now me and Darling Husband have gotten our “people over” clean down to 30 mins for the whole house.  It has over all helped us with our housekeeping.
