Dealing with the untimely death of a spouse is hard enough — and when their last wishes include you living near their parents for the rest if your life, it's even more intense.
A woman asked Reddit for advice about this exact situation.
Me (31 F) & kids (2 F, 4 M) moved with my husband (31 M) from where we met, married & had our children in California to Texas. We always said we would raise our kids in small town Texas where my husband grew up. It was his dream & I was happy to support him!
Her husband spent a lot of time helping them out, though.
When we moved – to a house a few blocks away from his parents – we thought we would be getting some help from his parents with the kids. They babysat the oldest twice in 8 months.
