Hello Jim~

I am not sure about the stinking fish metaphor, but the length of a house guest's stay must be discussed within the family to reach mutual agreement. Otherwise, the visit will surely end poorly with you and your wife at odds. Yes, a month is quite a long time unless your home is large enough to allow privacy for everyone and/or all in the household care about the vistors.

I do hope this helps.
