Living with In Laws!
Living with in-laws after marriage is a custom that Indian women have to follow even today! While it may work out well for some women, there are plenty of issues that may arise.

In crona situation , We have to live with inlaws joint family.They are good but
1.there is no space for your personal life and opinion.
2.Mental health is affected
3. You can't live freely
4. Cant do the things we use to do when live separate
5.Most annoying is back stabbing
6. cant buy the things with freedom,we need to tell them we are buying this that and have to show them
7. can't eat together
8. Cant take care of child properly
9. before speaking we need to make sure it wont hurt them(In short keep quite)
10.most important thing is mental health which is most affected and there is no peace
Uff... I was reading your experience and at the same time, thinking that I wrote this. Such kind of relatability !! The same situation here also... So, now I realise that I'm not the only one who face these kind of problems.

Before marriage i thought i am so blessed that I have In laws, after marriage also it was good for some time but as the time passed I realised that whatever u do for ur family u r still a outsider for them..
Although this is not true for everyone but still its true for atleast 90% of women's life..
I feel the same....

Very correct. We have to obey the rules of such family and spent the rest of our life time. Only one life and that too in some one's control will be irritating after a particular point of time. Some in laws are very lovable. But in so many houses, they are very much irritating. It hurts when a husband did not understand the mental pressure of a wife due to his father and mother.

There are benefits too. But there is an inability to bring our parents to our home to stay with us for days or so.
