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
I too live with my in laws and have experienced the same I can say I am experiencing it every day… the strange thing and the most important thing that I have experienced is the mental health.

I agree.... privacy, personal space are definitely at a spin while you stay at your in-laws and it gets even worse when there is no support in terms of taking care of babies, doing the household chores, etc.

see living with in laws sometimes beneficial nd sometimes not . everyone likes privacy nd live on their own rules but on the other hand for kids it's beneficial they like their company nd like to play with them .if in- laws are open minded and give space their daughter-in-law and treat her like their own daughter then this problem can easily solve.nobody wants to live alone but the circumstances make them like to live alone .that's it .thank you.

ofcourse it is sometimes very difficult to find space in a joint family. But understanding that the other members of the family are trying to adjust with us for our happiness makes it easy to ignore this drawback. The family of In Laws must have a positive approach towards the newcomer

I agree living with in-laws who don’t know how to respect other person privacy is difficult and adjusting is only solution

Yes, you are right.
Shivani Sharma Mom of 2 children 4 months ago
No.... But it is difficult to survive with them if they are creating more restrictions,if they are not undering our feelings. Every time creating one or other issues.... Otherwise it is our responsibility to take care of them. Because inlaws are also parents.... They are not just your parents. If we can look after our parents then why not our husband's.

if in laws are not good then it becomes strangulating.. otherwise it's a blessing to live with them..
