my mother in law and I hate each other and do not hide that fact from anyone. well she lives about 50 miles away from us now, well tonight she was just here and has gotten a new apartment here in our town so she will now live about 3 minutes from us!!!! My sister in law lives with her and she is disabled (my sil) and she was like oh goody we will be over here every single day to see the little one!!!! I am not going to like this and I am wanting to move or maybe kill myself. Is my husband wanting a divorce??

I'm in the same boat. We used to live a good 20 minute drive away, which wasn't awful, but then we moved 5 minutes from them, we had no choice. We love our neighborhood and community, but when we first moved in the in laws were over every single weekend or anytime they knew hubby was home. They don't normally have the gall to stop by when hubby isn't here, because I am quite rude to them. But over time they got too comfortable and started stopping in whenever they felt like it, without even calling first. It drove me crazy. The last time they did it was just a couple weeks ago, and honestly I'm still mad about it! We won't move, because we like this neighborhood too much, and they won't move because they're too old and too broke. But I wish they'd learn to respect our space and privacy.

this is what i am scared of. them just showing up. My hubby is gone a lot with truck driving and I am scared to be here by myself now. She will get my BIL over here and he will start trouble. The last time he found out where we lived he came when my hubby was not home and beat on the door for hours!! I finally had to call the police and heck the whole family is still mad at me over that. I have kids and they were scared.

Why doesn't your husband talk to them and tell them to stop? Everytime I have an issue with my in laws, I get hubby to talk to them. It doesn't usually do any good, but at least he's trying. I certainly wouldn't put up with that though. I think you need to get as far away from them as possible, and not give them your new address or phone number or anything.
