Issues that matter Women & Society
Living with In Laws!

It totally depends on people and how they provide atmosphere to new member of family.. sometimes it works sometime it doesn't.. i think relationship matters more than living together in one house.. everyone should think about giving & taking space to each other..

as per my view Living with in-laws are good for children to grow up well as well as for working women it is good to balance with the work of office and home... one can care her children very well while living together..i don't think in today's scenario it is much more difficult to find privacy while living in joint family..

If you try to find out privacy in joint family then it's too difficult... But your children need grandparents' love too..
Everything has two sides some are positive and some are negative....
Just don't think about negatives and go with positives... That's the key of happiness..

I live with my in law too, and it's really difficult to cope with her dos and don'ts. Just wishing this nightmare gets over soon.

I think best is to stay nearby but have your own space so that one can have their personal life.

living with inlaws has both pros n cons .. I'm living past 11 months with my 18 month old nd now I concluded mothers are more suffered physically n mentally , they support you less but they judge you more everything is expected from mother of toddler while I think a baby is not only responsibility of mother if she is living with inlaws , I m supposed to do all the house chores and with bringing up my baby ,do each and everything of my baby...customs aren't bad people are ..

After 10pm one gets privicy but then u have a baby to put to sleep and a warning to wake up at 6...Ah heart... A married young women is the strongest of creatures...l . its sad. being married in a village of Kashmir to an officer of a patriarchal parents is suicidal everyday. in actual Muslim families it's medatory to give Ur son a seperate house after marriage.

Living with in laws by custom or for taking care both are much heard of but what about girl's parents, after a certain age all parents need support even the girl's parents don't grow any younger. I prefer living nearby though not together, but taking care is what matters be it boy's or girl's in laws.

We will have to learn to adapt. Ofc there will be difference of opinions but it is the matter of family at the end of the day...Forgive and forget
