There is no good solution to the 'feast or famine' problem of dealing with parents and in-laws who live far away. Weeks on end is just too much, no matter how much you all love each other.

In non-pandemic times, I know colleagues who rent a place close to their parents (in Sydney) and arrange a 2-3 month visiting position at one of the universities, but this only works if your parents live near a major university and if you can work using only a laptop. (We fail the first; I guess you fail the second as well.)

Nail hit right on head there. This is the advantage of being in the same country - you can do weekends.

Two women in one house is a really bad idea. Husband must stand for his wife and protect her from abusive parent.
