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.

Have anyone wonder how the husband handle this situation ? Whose side he should take .

if it is for custom, I don't support. people should be willing to stay together. every individual is different but the willingness to accept including their flaws is the key to this set up. staying with parents is great if they understand that they do not have the right to boss and vice versa. if this is even, this setting can be incomparable!
