My mother-in-law is trying to control my husbands every move: Advice?

I am at my wits end with my mother-in-law. My husband and I just got married a little over a month ago and I swear he is still attached to her nipple. She still manages our bank account, HER NAME IS ON OUR BANK ACCOUNT. If she thinks we are spending too much, she will call us and tell us not to spend any money. She literally calls him every single day and makes sure he’s okay and asks him if he needs anything. Which fine, whatever…she has a right to check on him. But she wouldn’t even leave us alone on our HONEY MOON. I feel like I am going to burst. I just found out I was pregnant and I don’t want this hellacious woman to also try and micromanage our child. I have tried talking to my husband about this but he doesn’t seem to think any of this is an issue. What should I do?? I love my husband so much but I really thought once we got married, his mother wouldn’t be like this. Am I over reacting??

I’m sure it was that way when you were dating, why did you get married?! Can’t complain now & nothing is gonna chance because you accepted it.

No, you’re not and they never change. This should have been addressed before marriage, because it will continue until she dies.

Get your own bank account separate from your husband and his Mom’s.

You should have addressed this way before you married the guy in my opinion. She probably doesn’t see anything wrong with what she is doing.

move away!! change accounts… you knew this before you got married. just an FYI did you honestly think it was going to change no just get worse…

Girl, you married the wrong guy, It’s only going to get worse if your husband does not let go of that nipple! You will end up in divorce or therapy. Wish you would have seen this before you said I DO! If you did, that was your poor choice, deal with it i suppose :woman_shrugging:. smdh

Mother in laws like that are the worst. Get your own account. Cut her out where you can and distance yourself from her. Set boundaries for yourself.

If he doesn’t see it as a problem it won’t change. I am sure it was the same while dating so you knew what you were getting.

You ignored a major red flag, that was a issue that needed to be addressed long before wedding proposal much less the actual marriage, can’t help you

You might have to teach him how to be a man.
Time for a Woman War.
Go to the bank and get her name off the account.
