It’s cool that his dad would let you live there – especially rent free.  I think doing it for even 6 months would be awesome.  Try to find a compromise with your husband.

I did this with my Fiance, then boyfriend, when we moved from CA to NC.  We had a transitionary period, when he was looking for a job, while we moved.  It was during the ’08-’09 slump in the economy and he had already been out of work for almost a year.  We stayed with his parents in NJ, while he sent out resumes to companies in NC, looked for apts, etc.  This went on for two months there, and I was alone with his parents while he was in NC for about half the time.  We ended getting our own apartment, then three years later, purchased our first home.

I think the difference was that it was only for a few months, so I knew there was going to be an end.  I think it’s possible, but you really have to be honest with yourselves on how long this will be for.  Best of luck!

If its only for a few months it might not be bad idea but from experience living with relatives is never good.
