    I'm in trouble

    My parents drove 4 hours to stay with us for the weekend. My wife said that under no circumstance are they to be in our house before we get home. When my wife got home from work, my parents were there.1. Was I wrong for letting my parents in? 2. How do I make her happy?

    I agree with her, you should have made your parents stay in the car.

    I think we all know the answer to this. Just keep it quiet. Even though it is your house it's still ackward when they hear you.

    Re: I'm in trouble

    depends on why she didn't want them there yet.

    house not ready?

    she had something she wanted to do before they got there?

    your mother might be a little snoopy?

    make sure to compliment her in a appreciative honest way in front of your mother, that will go a long way....

    my hunch is it is a DIL vs Mom issue....my wife can get touchy here too....I hate when your mom is around because she does stuff for you....well, ya, my mother cooked, but it doesn't stop the jealousy.

    Re: I'm in trouble

    Your wife is being irrational, can't believe your parents aren't allowed in your home without either of you being there. Act like nothing happened I guess. Good luck.

    Re: I'm in trouble

    Kind of a different situation but my brother and his wife are visiting sometime next week. They aren't allowed in my parent's house without any of us being here. Parents hate the ol' sister in law. However, parents are much different and kind of stupid.

    Re: I'm in trouble

    The last time I posted an appropriate video clip for a similar situation, it got deleted. So I'll just say...she's crazy.
