Wife wants me to pay for In-Laws flight tickets to visit us
Indian guy here, my wife expects me to pay for my Father & Mother In-Laws air tickets from India to US to come and visit us and also take them on mini vacations when they are here.
They visit every year for 1-2 months, they are retired but have decent money/pension etc and can very easily afford the tickets.
I do it because it makes her happy.
Its not a huge amount, its 4-5k every year. Bay area is an expensive places, I am the single earner and most of my salary goes is basic expenses, I have never spent 4-5k to buy something for myself.
I feel bad that I am being selfish. Also, my parents died when I was young so I don’t have strong family bonds.
