Hi. I am 28 years old married woman. I and my husband are software engineers. My husband's brother and his wife also stay in our home. They both are also working, earning around 35000/- per month together. At home all expenses are spent by me n my husband only (My Mother-in-law says, my husband brother is earning less so you take care of them). His brother will not even show a bit of gratitude towards us, they will not help us in any household chores also. My husband always says, they have to settle in their life. They have to be happy, for that I will do whatever I can. Even I support him in that. But the attitude of his brother and his wife towards us makes us feel bad. Their attitude is like, we r just staying in this house like guests. My husband sometimes even serve them and please them to have food etc. Also I feel like I am ignored by my husband in many cases. But they will not give my husband that much priority / respect. If anything goes wrong in the home, my husband says, just adjust n let it go. Even doing all these, my husband's brother complained to my mother in law saying, because of me, they r going to office late. But I inquired my Co-sister, she said no problem in our offices whenever we go to office. I am still not sure, what should I do? And how should I react.
