I told my BIL during Thanksgiving that as much as I like them and ATL suburbs area I could never live near them.Ouch

Backstory: My two SILs live about 10 minutes away from each other and they are like oil and water. They have periodic fights throughout the year which result in them not talking to each other for periods of time.  Thanksgiving was one of those times with one sister coming over for Thanksgiving but not telling the other sister that she was coming until the morning off [and she didn't tell her sister, her daughter did which annoyed the other sister to no end] and she spent the entire time on her phone and didn't talk to anyone.Sleepy   Sh*t was mad awkward.

Now I have no problem with either SIL but I am closer to one.  And I told my dh that if we moved down there we would inevitably be pulled into their bullsh*t with one another.

He agreed.LOL  He was like "yeah I like being a phone call away."Pinch




So BHM, for those who have in-laws could you move near them? For those who don't..do you imagine yourself living near them?

I take back what I said. There are worse things than having your SO's family love you. I guess I could manage it.

Don't have inlaws.  I don't want to live near my family or my husband's family.  Nigerian in-laws especially are nosey, intrusive, and overbearing.  No thanks.

MIL for sure, I could live with her but my FIL hell no! He brought a house next door to his own in the hope we would want to live there. My husband was like hell no. We love the old man but he can get annoying real quickly.

We live literally 45 min between both sets of in-laws. My fam tends to have the side that does knock down drag out fights, so with the exception of my immediate family, I don't mess with them unless it's a major holiday. His family is VERY close. As in he calls his dad daily type thing and there's always someone over at our house. We live in the Bronx, and so does the majority of his family so we see people all the time.

Since they're not overbearing and are actually very helpful, I don't mind it at all. But if you have in-laws that are like harpies, being 45 min away and being connected to them on FB, phone, etc would be a nightmare.

I live about 1hr from my in-laws (fil/mil/bils) and that is too damn close. I don't see them too often (before thanksgiving, the last time I saw them was in Apr) but hubby works with his dad and sees them more than me.

maybe it wouldn't be so bad if they werent all backstabbing, moneygrubbing azzholes.

i wish there were more distance

see his sisters are fine--as long as they're not fighting. i especially like my BIL. we do stuff like take family bike rides and hikes when we're down there which i like. [his sisters aren't particularly active and neither his my dh] so i get to do stuff like that with the family and hang out with my nieces and nephews which i like a lot.

 but when they're mad at each other--lawd help us!

My inlaws are nice to ME, but they have a love/hate relationship with their son. Lmao
Seriously.
He wouldn't want to live near them, but if we did move to their city, we may end up seeing each other because it is so small, and we are always out and about. and he would probably feel uncomfortable about that. Plus his mother would send out her spies. I think it would be best if we stayed at a distance, and he would probably agree. Lol
Hot mess
