mil trying to keep tab on food we eat

Rate this Entry
My hubby n me live with our in laws and are married for little more than a year. I have always observed my mil keeping a count of how much we eat whn we have meals together. Also when she comes back from a trip she asks me what we ate for the days she was away and I avoid answering this. She also goes all the way to ask our maid what she cooked for us while she was away! We are a well earning family where my hubby me n my fil earn enough to afford a decent standard of living.
please advise how to deal with this as it is becoming increasingly irritating and a huge invasion on our privacy. Any suggested solution anyone ?

    Move. Let her see how much she enjoys living on 2/3 less money than before.

    Would you rather be happy or would you rather live in h3ll? Stop combining your money with theirs. Save it, move and tell your mommy's boy DuH he can move with you and be your husband or he can stay with his mommy and be divorced.

    There is NOTHING you can do or say to get MIL to be a decent person in this situation. I'm guessing she does other things she does too that are over the line. Your only option is to remove yourself from the situation that gives her all the power, and to put boundaries on any time you might spend with her in the future.

    1. Long lasting Birth Control, do NOT bring children into this family.
    2. Save up to rent a place for just you.
    3. When you have saved up first/last/deposit, tell DuH you are moving out in two weeks, with or without him. I know he wants to live with mumsie. He's welcome to do that, it will just be without you. He can sleep with her.
