The woman doesn't want her to, but her husband is on his mother's side. It's causing a huge conflict between the couple, with the husband even calling his wife selfish and mean for not letting his mother nap in their room.

Mother-in-law wants to nap in our bedroom 🙄 - AITA?

Living with in-laws can be challenging, especially when it comes to setting boundaries. In this case, a woman's mother-in-law moved in temporarily, and they prepared a room for her. However, the mother-in-law started taking naps in the woman's and her husband's bedroom and wants to continue doing so. The woman refuses, citing her need for the room after work.

Her husband thinks she's being unreasonable and selfish, refusing to speak to her until she agrees. It's a classic case of a clash of needs and wants. How should they resolve this issue?

Let's dive into the comments and see what people have to say about this situation.
