My husband's father lives with us cause his wife passed away 5 years ago and he feels lonely.We accpet him cause filial piety is our tradition.But I and my husband lost freedom as we must take care of him at home.Usually we go out at weekend,now we have to stay home to accompany him cause he does not like outdoor activity.My life became dull and I have to bear cause he is my father in law...Hmmm,it's too bad.

Actually, its the other way around for me. After I got married, my wife and I still lived with my parents for almost a year. After she gave birth to our daughter, we lived at her parents house for more than a year. The reason is because we didn't have the money yet to buy our own house and lot and renting a house or an apartment was not a good option since according to our parents, we were still welcome to stay with them and just save the money so that someday we can get our own house and lot we can call our own. And yes, after all these years, we are now living in the confines of our own home... away from our parents. In regards to your situation, if its really bothering you, have you tried talking to you husband about this matter? If you're going to ask me, I can't just send away my parent. I owe my life to my parents. If it weren't for them, then I wouldn't be here and married. What if the situation was reversed and it was you father who is asking for your company? Would you send him away as well?
