I have a question for anyone out there. How much interaction with your parents or your spouses parents is considered normal? By interaction I guess I mean sometimes interferance or involvement. My husband shares with his family EVERYTHING and I mean everything. His family knows about our marriage, everything about our children, our finances and the day to day living. He talks to his family everyday many times. Lots of times his family has more knowledge on my life than me. When I have brought this up to him that I enjoy some privacy and dont feel anyone including family needs to know everything about us, he just says his family is close, and of course I'm making something out of nothing. Then yesterday after he and I had a long talk about our lives and I expressed that I need people to honor my wishes about privacy(meaning his family and our marital problems), he told me he wished we could be closer to his family. Am I crazy to want privacy??? How do other families operate???What is "normal"?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
