Flickr 3006348550 - Reader Question of the Week: Help! We Live with Extended Family!Every weekend I like to throw up a question someone sends in and let you readers have a go at it. Here’s a question that I’ve received from quite a few people with different variations, so I’m going to write a composite, and let you all go at it!

For financial reasons, my husband and I have had to move in with his parents. They’re a lovely couple, and I know they love us, but I find it very draining. We don’t have any privacy. Nieces and nephews will often walk into our bedroom unannounced. My husband feels like he has to talk to his parents all the time since we’re living in their house, but then the two of us get no time.

To make matters worse, I’m really uncomfortable having sex. Our bedroom is right next door to theirs, and I’m always worried about noise. What should we do?

I’ll add that about half of these women have kids who are also sharing the bedroom, and half do not. So what are your thoughts? How do you find privacy when you’re living with extended family? And what do you do about being nervous to make love?

Leave your thoughts in the comments!

And don’t forget: The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex makes a great gift for any woman about to get married. So if you’re going to a bridal shower this spring, bring it along! And it makes a great Mother’s Day gift to yourself, as well! I’m sure your husband won’t mind :).
