Just no!

Today, after I just bought a house that is pretty good and suits all our needs for space, my in-laws moved in because they ran into financial troubles. Guess who is stuck with all the extra expenditures? FML

No. No no no no! You bought the house: you and your spouse or only you? Even if it's just you+spouse, you still have your saying in the matter, your husband can't just tell your in-laws to move in with you forever without telling you first.
What financial troubles? They got scammed? They decided to have a massive vacation during which they burned all their money? I understand it's going to be tough, but still, it's YOUR house, you shouldn't have to pay for your in-laws, it's your life, not theirs.

I agree here, my BIL moved in after breaking up with his missus. He was there for nine months doing nothing but using our utilities and eating our food. In the end we said look we love you but you have to go we will give you six months to get your shit together then you have to leave. He moved out in four months. Set then some limits and ask them to pitch in other wise GTFO

Your spouse? Your in-laws? How did it become your problem? Give them some chores and a move out date, and if your spouse wants to fight about it, tell them they can move out too if they won't take your side. It's your home, and no one moves in without your consent. Total BS that your spouse would side with their birth family over you. Helping out is fine, but within boundaries and limits.
