Smart 👍👍My mom and wife have a mutual respect for each other. Guess I lucked out there.
On the other hand my wife's mom and my wife bump heads all the time. And, of course, they look at me and say "Who is right?"
I always side with my wife.

We moved from Ohio to Florida. My wife was glad to have the distance and in a way so did I. Now the ironic thing is that my wife is the one who told my mom to move here. So my mom jumped on that before anyone changed their mind.Yes indeed watch this show. My wife tried to get me to watch it for years. I couldn't have cared less. But one morning working at the golf course it was on tv and it was slow so I watched it. I was on the floor laughing. But I went home and I told my wife that I watched it I got the I told you so but only in a kidding manner. Funny thing is that when we were looking for houses there was a house right across the street from my parents house for sale. My wife constantly reminds me that if we had bought that house our life would have been "Everyone Loves Raymond" And my family is Italian. Thank God we didn't buy that house.
Careful there ...The difference between your mother and wife is that your mother loves their children unconditionally. Your wife on the other hand has a trait called hypergamy.
My wife is a little high strung (type A) but loves to help my mom out. My mom is very laid back and has tons of horror stories from co workers about terrible mother in laws so is extremely careful to not cross boundaries. My parents were both pretty hands off so overall things are great.I'd be interested in hearing about the dynamics of the relationship between your wife and your mom? I'd also be interested in the perspective of the ladies.
There is literally no one that I know personally to ask or seek out advice.
My wife tends to believe my mom is manipulative. My mom is always trying to think up unique things to do with our kids and does not seem satisfied with just getting time with them regardless of what activities they plan. My mom has a tough time understanding that we want to take our kids to the new experiences and stuff.
My wife doesn't think that I recognize the things that my mom does but no one knows my mom better than I do, except perhaps my aunt.
Surely I can't be the only one caught in the middle of such nonsense.
My wife and I met when she was 14 and I was 16. AOL chat room. Nearly 24 years ago.Support your wife! Support your wife! By the way did I say support your wife? You grew up with your mother and have dealt with her all your life, your wife hasn't. Even if you've been married a long time your wife is still and "outsider" to your mother and is always going to be the "bad guy" to your mother so please, listen to her and help her. I can guarantee you she will love you more for it.
I disagree. Sounds good as a concept, but we often make irreversible mistakes. The choice of a 'Wife' in hindsight can be the BIGGEST mistake in one's life choices. Some people are not 100% transparent into their true self until later on. This makes them treacherous and not worthy of lifelong support.DISCLAIMER: Just some free advice not saying you have to use it.
ALWAYS support your wife! When you were married the two of you became one. Regardless of who believes they are right/wrong always stand with your wife and support her.
