beeleaf, you know your parents best, so I would trust your gut feeling on this. I think you've gotten a lot of good advice on the thread.

I just wanted to add, the best case scenario here is that you save some money (which is nice) and maybe even get closer to you parents, have your relationship grow, but that the worst case scenario is, you have a big fight with your parents, and possibly do some damage to your relationship with them. You can try to figure out as best you can which way it will go beforehand, but no one can know for sure. I guess it's not something I would do, especially after a very nice but somewhat stressful two weeks at my mom's house with my husband and son. Even if I thought it would probably be okay, I think the risks outweigh the rewards. And (in my personal case) I would only think it would probably be okay if my whole family hadn't been there recently, and I got to see firsthand how it went.

And I love my mom, and she's great, but I can't keep her *and* my DH happy, they want contradictory things and they're both very similar people. I love them both, but oh, my goodness, I don't want to live with both at one time.

Anyway, just my two cents. Good luck with the decision.
