It shows you respect yourself & your wife.

I cann't imagine any of my in-law coming to stay in my house without my knowledge or my family member coming to stay without my husband knowledge!

Unless your house is a family bus-stop where different people drop by without notice? Then you should be prepare for the consequent like unmanageable finance, time management etc

Yes of course but that is not to say you are seeking her approval. Simple courtesy. Problem is that even if you forget women will always make a mountain out of it and funny enough if they are the one inviting, they care less believing you would most certainly approve especially if its their sister.

Out of respect to her, YES!

You dont want to deal with a resentful wife at the end of the day. Most importantly, it shows you respect her, but that doesnt diminish your position as the HEAD of the family.

of course!!

If the relative is going to be fed and housed why shouldn't the other party be informed.

Yes by all means - It is her house too, whether or not it was built before your wife was born and the property deeds are in your name only.

@OP: Sure, she must know. The woman matters. I'll never diss my wife or give her rude surprises, what for?

That is normal now, and it goes both ways unless your house is like a guest house. Would the person coming not need some care, are you not going to make provision for the visitor?

You should discuss with your wife, all major things you intend to do, not just to inform her. That is, if she's your wife, and not a wife.

What are we discussing? Is this something to discuss? If you are a grown man and you don't know the answer to this question of yours then you need a shrink! I'm out!

I suspect this was meant to be another basher thread but thankfully the ladies in the house have handled this in a matured manner.

 Should You Inform Your Spouse Before Inviting Your Relations To Stay Over?

 Yes. only makes sense. The house / home does not belong to you alone.
