Things with in-laws can get pretty complicated, huh?

And this situation sounds like it’s gonna cause a whole lot of headaches for the woman you’re about to hear from.

Is she wrong?

Read her story below and see what you think.

AITA for refusing to share my vacation home with my in-laws for six months after they sold their house without consulting me?

“My husband (35M) and I (33F) have been married for five years. We own a beautiful vacation home on the beach that we built ourselves and we use throughout the year.

My in-laws (60s) have always been welcome guests, visiting for a few weeks here and there, and contributing financially towards maintenance costs.

They got some news…

Last month, my in-laws suddenly announced they were selling their house to “downsize” and move into a tiny condo. Apparently, they’ve been secretly harbouring this idea for months, never mentioning it to me or my husband.

They plan to close on the sale in two weeks and then… move into our vacation home for six months while they “figure things out.”

I was floored. This house is our sanctuary, not a retirement home extension. We use it frequently, have friends and family booked to visit throughout the year, and rely on the income it generates during peak season.

My in-laws, on the other hand, haven’t lifted a finger on the property themselves and contributed only minimally.

Her husband, on the other hand…

My husband, bless his sweet heart, is more understanding. He feels bad for his parents and believes we can “make it work.”

His parents, sensing my resistance, are now guilt-tripping us, claiming they have nowhere else to go and offering to pay “significantly more” than their usual contribution.

On one hand, I feel obligated to help family in need, but on the other, this feels like an outrageous imposition on our personal space and finances.”

AITA for refusing to let them move in?”

Check out what people said about this on Reddit.

One person was not cool with this at all.

Another Reddit user noticed a red flag.

Another individual said they might want to rent a place for the in-laws.

And this person thinks they’ll never leave if they’re allowed to stay there…

Yikes…that’s a tough one.
