Moving out - Is there a chance it will happen this year?

2 posts in this topic

If your AC has come home to live w/ you, is there a chance they'll move out this year? Would you like them to move out soon or at least, set a deadline? Or are you ok living together indefinitely? How about if you've moved in w/ your AC/CIL? Or if you're an AC/CIL who has moved in w/ your parents/PILs?

FWIW, there seems to be a whole spectrum of attitudes on this situation. For example, referring back to Judith Viorst's Alexander and the Wonderful, Marvelous. Excellent, Terrific Ninety Days again (last time, I promise) ... she tells us of "Audrey" who would like her DD and family to move out (they've stayed way longer than originally planned), but - rock & hard place - fears both that it won't happen "unless she gives them a shove" and that if she does, there will be bad consequences. OTOH, Viorst describes "Eric and Margaret" who are happy to let their DD and family live w/ them indefinitely and say they would be "truly disappointed if (DD and SIL)... wanted to move out." And herself and DH, falling somewhere in the middle, who would be "disappointed" and "humiliated" if Alexander and Marla "decided to move out prematurely"/before the agreed-upon date, but who, at the same time, are glad that the situation is "temporary." As she also points out, the younger individuals/couples can have different views on this situation, too.
