Hi MrsRose,

I’m really sorry to hear about your FIL, my FIL passed away from cancer recently and it’s a horrible thing to go through.

It sounds like your MIL and FIL have plenty of support close by, but you and your FI need to do what’s best for you both. We moved in with my MIL and FIL to take care of FIL, and I won’t lie it was really, really tough. My FI didn’t want to move in with them but I insisted as I knew he would regret not being there afterwards if we didn’t. The other day he said to me that as tough as it was, he was really glad I insisted. Our scenario was a bit different though as MIL is disabled, so she needed looking after too.

If you don’t move down there with them, perhaps you could phone them several times a week to check they’re ok and see if they need anything? Then you could go and see them as and when you are needed?

Do feel that you can take some time to make a decision though, even if it’s just a week to have a good think about it and discuss it. I would be inclined to let your FI decide what to do as it’s his father, but I empathise completely, it’s a really difficult situation to be in.

Sending big hugs and sorry I’m not more help x

I am so sorry you are going through this.

Would it be possibly for your FI to take a leave from work to maybe make travelling back and forth easier? That way you could remain in your position until the contract is up?

I’m sorry I am not more helpful! I agree with PP, they do seem like they have support near by which is great.
