Well..
Since you say there will be something for your MIL after the divorce, just get her a flat and find a woman who would come and help her in the house (her house) everyday. And take her into your house at certain intervals..Ie a week each time for total not more than 1 1/2 months in a year.
That is what my solution would be..

I hate to burst your bubble....NEVER NEVER NEVER live with your parents...I would take a second job to get an apartment for her before I had her move in with me. Something close by so she can share meals and spend time with you and not be lonely...but not under the same roof. Just my thoughts.

One hundred percent correct Elisabeth! I moved out at 17,
joined the Navy, and never looked back.
My sister on the other hand stayed.......Still there after
many years.....not a good life choice.
Get out on your own, pay your dues and live your life
with all it's mistakes, messes and some joy.....

If you get along well and respect eachothers privacy why should it be a problem to live together? Not for forever, but as a temporary solution.
I dislike how people in modern society don't have anything to do with eachother. Family is important.

are you sure you are talking about eastern people regarding privacy?
theres no such a thing called a privacy in the east. thats why they live all generations together, in clans.

The terms of living in clans and generations are not the same thing
If you feel social you stay in the salon or if you're not you can go to your room or out. It's not really different from "the west" except people more often prefer to stay together.
Antisocializm is overrated

Where do you guys come from?

I talk from my experiences in the very south eastern corner of Turkey shouldn't that be the most "extreme" in terms of "backwardness" Or where is that then?
