I am married and don't prefer living with in-laws. Following are some examples situations. 1. It's lunch time. Mil and me cooking. MS team's rings, manager asking for a quick update on project. If I'm at my place, I can conveniently switch off the stove and resume 15 mins later. Can't do the same in their place. 2. Need to work late 11-12 in night. Deadline is approaching. I'll order from Swiggy, if at my place. In their house, I have to listen to the lecture about how important family is and that I should be prioritising while my husband works till 3 in the night.

Unmarried women are facing the same issues in the name of being trained. The fact is that human beings are not very equipped to be in close proximity for the entirety of their days and Indian parentals do not have a concept of the fact that their children are old enough to know what to prioritise at what point.

Anyone single or married who's staying with their parents or In Laws feel that there life has become stagnant. This is because every little thing we do is bizzare to elders. Like waking up late in the morning, ordering food instead of cooking, going out on weekends etc.,. Basically the difference in opinions and the lifestyle choices is kinda conflicting and the only solution is for the office to start so that we can just get out of our hometown and do whatever we want. And yes we are now addicted to our Freedom, there is no going back 🤭

Freedom is required to some extent, daily outside food is harmful to health... Elders are not always wrong... They are experienced and advise us for our good 😊😊

Living with In laws is always difficult coz there is an unsaid responsibility which needs to be taken care off. With work it sometimes becomes difficult to take care of everybody thats y women need freedom from such responsibilties. If men are asked to live 24*7 with their inlaws i bet they would also demand the same freedom. There is nothing wrong with that i guess

My favorite part about WFH is that I experience significantly less micro aggressions and/or discrimination than when I used to have to go to the office. The downside is that there will probably be less work for employment lawyers. I don’t mind making that sacrifice.
