Disgruntled Amercian's view on joint family
I am an American who has been married to an Indian for 10 years now. We lived in the u.s. for the first 6 years of our marriage.We had our own lives, home, finances, life, kids, food, home etc.We moved to India for my husband to pursue his career and stayed at his parents house. It has been almost 4 years. I really hate my in-laws. I have been holding my tongue for so long, I just dont know how much longer.Every time I ask my husband about moving out, he comes up with so many excuses on why we shouldn't.But I really hate living in a joint family. Have no privacy at all.Sister-in law keep interfering and advising me on how to bring up my children
