Well, I was locked in my room this morning. LOL!
Well, not actually locked, but I couldn't leave because my brother-in-law was over and my husband wasn't home. This ends up happening sometimes because my bro-in-law (we'll call him A) will sleep over sometimes and my husband leaves for works usually around 8:30 am and A, who is younger than my husband and unmarried, doesn't go to work until later.
So, when I wake up I have to listen or check if he's outside and then I just stay in my room until he leaves. I can't just wake up and tell him to leave because I would feel really awkward doing that, even though I know Islamically I should. So, I do the next best thing and avoid all contact with the outside world.
I've told my husband many times that it's really weird for me if A is here and he is not, but he also doesn't want to say anything to his brother because he doesn't want it to seem like we don't want him here. He's a nice guy and very respectful, but I guess he just doesn't understand not to come when his brother isn't here.
Inshallah, we are looking for a wife for him, so the sooner he gets married, the sooner he'll be coming over with his wife and that will be much better for me!
Any advice on how to handle the situation without having feelings get hurt?
Until next time...
