My husband parents aren't really there to help and I they are not in the kids lives. I don't feel comfortable with my kids spending the night there.
I am very paranoid and I know I am a bad wife cause of this. I want to go on date nights,

Answers:

This "My husband parents aren't really there to help and they are not in the kids lives."

Contradicts this: "I don't feel comfortable with my kids spending the night there."

They are offering to have the children stay with them i.e. BE there to help AND be in the kids lives more often, but you are turning them down because of your paranoia.

Are they dangerous people? Like they take drugs? They live in a neighborhood with driveby shootings? They have a filthy, rat-infested home?

Or do you just not like them and you are telling them (and your husband) that your parents are better than them and you don't want your children to be tainted by them?

Make some girlfriends who are married with children, then you can watch each others children for husband date nights.

Edit: If your children are 5-15, I'd sit for you so you could go on date with your husband. I would put the kids to work, like a Sargent in the Army. You'd return to your home cleaner than it's ever been, and they'd be in bed when you returned, asleep and exhausted. From the next day forward, they would appreciate you, more than ever before.
Unfortunately, I'm busy that night, sorry ;)

First you should realize how lucky you are to have your parents available and willing to take care of your kids, and if you aren't paying them, you should be showering them with gifts.

Second the reason your husbands parents aren't "in your childerens lives" is usually because you haven't allowed them to be. And that is because you don't offer them the unconditional trust like you do your own parents. As parents we all worry about our kids, just less so when they are with people we trust. The paternal grandparents will never gain your trust until you give them a chance to prove themselves. And that applies to anyone else you might hire.

There are several ways to ease this process. One is to spend time with the babysitter to observe how they care for the kids. Another is to have the babysitter for a short period and surprise them with an earlier than planned arrival. Also remember, Date Night doesn't require the kids to stay over night.

The 14 year old in the neighborhood may have references from other parents in the neighborhood, but your husband's parents have the best references you could ever hope for. Don't rule them out.

You're not a bad wife just because you prefer it when your kids are in their own beds at night. Why does this make you a bad wife? I don't get it.

I'm sure that, if you ask around and address people you know who have children, they can give names of reliable babysitters with references.
