From the title alone, my first thought was no. Not going to happen. My mother is good to go for retirement. Counting down the days, so no worries there. MIL on the other hand, I am really not so sure. I 'think' she is prepared, but I don't know. I would never move to where she lives. I would also NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER want her living in a house where I am also living. But, if need be, I would help her move near us and find her a place she could afford.
But after reading your post, it doesn't sound like you would mind it-as long as you each have your space. The commute would suck, but I would discuss with DH and see how he really feels about it.
Is it possible that your mother could start cutting back now? Could she do her consulting elsewhere? Or just start saving more in general?
