Out of the blue, my husbands mother has been coming over to the house a lot. Basically every other day or so, and it's really starting to bother me. On multiple occasions, as soon as he gets home from work, she's right there at my door. Lately she has even started to cook meals in our kitchen, but only for the two of them. It's like she ensures there is never enough for me. When I confronted my husband about this, he told me that he didn't grow up privileged like me, and that his mom is all he has. What does that have to do with anything? How do I get her out of my house?

I'm not joking when I say watch the show Everybody Loves Raymond. The show literally is mostly about them trying to get Rays mother out of their house. Mostly what the others have said in setting proper boundaries, that is your house and need to communicate that very effectively with your husband that you don't want her dropping in almost every day. This isn't about her, this is about your husband having respect for your boundaries because it might not be your mother-in-law next time. It could be some annoying guy from work that your husband met and became super best buds with and you don't like him in the house. You need to really get the message though (not that you aren't unreasonable) but have her come over once a week. Visits from family members can be exhausting so I feel your pain. But don't get angry until you talk to him and he still refuses to take action to your needs. You need this and if he wants to be happy, he'll need it too.0
