They are self-sufficient but they want to sell their home so my Mom will be taken care of if my Dad passes on. They have been supporting my brother who is 57 since he as been 18. We have been paying their mortgage to help them out for 10 years. My brother threatens our lives if my Dad doesn't pay his bills we are all scared. So my brother has made my parents broke and that is why he needs to sell his home to get money to live for the rest of their remaining lives. This is not to spend on having fun. This is to survive. They will be renting their home out and staying with us for 4 months, but my Mom and Dad want us to take them in for good. They said that I always told them if you need to sell, then do it, but that was before they got a dog. I have a dog too who is petrified of their dog. I really feel bad for him, so I thought they can just stay a few months and then give my dog a break. Also, my husband and I feel like we are still dating after 27 years. We don't mind them spending time together we get along and love them deeply, we have never gone on a trip without them, we lived with them years ago for 3 years and when they rent too. My parents want to be with us and miss us during the rest of the year but we also vacation with them at their home for 5 weeks out of the year. My Mom said I should feel guilty for not letting her stay with us and I'm assuming she also means not helping them do that in order to sell their home. I told her I like some privacy for half the year. My husband and I like to watch our own movies on the weekends. They would have to retire the bedroom early in the evening if we were to do that. Then we like to talk for hours after dinner (which we enjoy them too when they are here), but we also like to have that time by ourselves. I live outside of D.C. and the only apartment that they could live in for the amount we are paying is 3 hours away. I wouldn't do that to them and they wouldn't want that either and they certainly don't need a nursing home. I guess my wanting a little privacy with my husband will not be for long because their money is running out. My Mom knows that I like privacy I even played by myself with no friends when I was young. I love them so much, but I just like my own space just for a short time. My Mom and Dad are so hurt that I don't want to live with her all of the time. She has always said we would never mind if you moved in with us. They want to be with me 24/7. Remember, brother issues, money issues and lonely issues with my parents. What should I do?
