All most of us can relate to is our actual experiences.

 

I personally don't have any bad experiences where interaction with the wife's family is concerned. However that doesn't necessarily represent or reflect one way or the other on Filipino society.

 

One of my sisters is a total leach though. She has been saying give me and it's owed me all her life. That does not even represent my other sister, much less all sisters.

If you bonk him then it's tick "We live alone."

father inlaw had past away about 15 yrs ago but the mother inlaw lives wiith us and i like it. she is old school and keeps everyone in line. she treats me with respect and she makes dam sure everyone

Being an uber laid-back kind of guy it's not in my character to "lay down the law".   My only two unbreakable rules are that we aren't moving off the island or to another country and...   No one i

I think there's confusion with the second question as anyone voting We Live Alone is supposed to select N/A in the second so the vote count for those 2 should be the same.  I myself selected Very Happy, Wouldn't have it any other way until I read the question.

It must have been added later because there was no N/A when I voted. I just deleted my votes and redid it.

Here in Bahrain, we have my wife's 2 sisters living with us. It works out great as the cooking/cleaning load is shared and they are available to watch over my kids, particularly my 9-year-old daughter (who gets extra tutoring with schoolwork). When we visit Cebu, we stay at my in-law's place in Mandaue. We built our house in Tayud but, to tell you the truth, we haven't even spent the total of a whole month there these past 10 years. The reason being that we go on holiday to visit the family and chill out - if we stay in Tayud, we are away from them (much like being out of the country). As for myself, the "Foreigner", I've made a lot of friends there and get to hang out with them (drinking and jamming sessions). I would miss that in Tayud. I've been blessed with my in-laws and their neighbors as they are good, friendly and fun people.

 

I should've added that both my sisters-in law are working and contribute to the household expenses such as groceries, etc. And my brother-in-law in Mandaue has built up his own business without our help and is doing pretty well (better than what I get here!!). The in-laws house was rebuilt a few years back with everyone contributing to the cost. If you have gone to the LTO in Mandaue, you'd probably see their house - its the tallest there with a blue roof and blue-tiled walls  :biggrin_01:

We thought we would do my sister-in-law's family a favor and hire her to help around the house. Bought her furniture for her room, clothes and paid her way from Sorsogon to Santa Rosa, Laguna. She took care of the house and dogs while we were on vacation for a week. After we got back, she didn't even stay for a week. It was a small 2br 2cr town house so she had an easy job. Never figured out why she left.
