My wife and I have been married for 10 years now. 5 years ago

Customer Question

My wife and I have been married for 10 years now. 5 years ago we had a child and my in-laws moved in to help out ... and stayed ever since. In these five years, I was increasingly marginalized at my own house. My in-laws basically took over my house. They run a unlicensed daycare, make a mess of my house. They raise my kid as they see to fit. For example, my child is left handed but my mother-in-law absolutely insists on having him use his right hand. When I asked her to stop, she got mad at me. My wife absolutely sides with her parents. And over the years, the situation gets worse. It seems nowadays my only function in the household is to make money, and in return, I still get to stay in my own house. My wife has pulled all sorts of tricks to "suppress" my "rebellion". She tried to be nasty, give me looks, throw temper tantrum whenever I'm not happy with the situation. Recently, my in-laws start to badmouth me in front of my neighbors. I had enough. Unfortunately, legally it's not easy for me to force-ably evict my in-laws. Is there anything I can do to improve the situation at home?
