Got married 6 months ago and since then I lost my business and started a new career. I was out of work for 2 months. I found a new job bringing home almost 3 times what I was making before and have been saving to move out of the house with my lovely new wife.
The problem is that my mother and wife are not getting along. My mother is constantly harping on money issues and stepping on my wife's toes like crazy. I keep reminding mother that we can either save money and get out own home or help her with the bills. There is no wiggle room. We do not make much money at all. More than we did, but we have been digging out of the hole my being out of work for 2 months caused us.
I need to find a way to quiet things down for the next couple months as we save our money and find a place to live. Right now every day is getting worse. I see no solution to this because we are stuck here until we can save enough to move out. Moving out is expensive and it will take a while to save the needed cash.
Any ideas? I have tried to find something they have in common that they can bond over, but all Mom wants to do is complain and put down and harp about money issues. Nothing I do will make her change the subject and every conversation ends the same way. I am at a loss.
