Our expert says:
I think some men, even more than others, form a habit of allowing their mom to run their lives : "I'll go out and play rugby ; she'll see to the washing for me" ; and its a habit both they and their mothers can find very hard to give up when they marry. She needs to be gently told, bu both of you together, that while you will appreciate her advice when you ask for it, you are happier to run your lives yourselves now, without uninvited advice. How you choose to spend the moeny you earn, will be your business, and you won't appreciate comments from her. If she gets angry, just leave saying you'll be pleased to see her when she calms down, and don't get involved in her anger. But make it clear that you won't give in to her anger, and might have to separate yourselves, and see less and less of her unless she can change this bad habit
I also wonder whether she feels redundant and lonely, and perhaps has very little else to do. Maybe you can between you find other things she can get involved in --- church, community groups, old friends, whatever, to keep herself busy with anything except worrying about your lives.
And check out her sources of information --- what spy network does she have so she can remain so informed about everything you do ? Identify those blabbering people and tell them to stop it or you'll cut them out of your lives, too.
