How Should A Man Handle His Wife Who Cannot Do Anything Without The Consent Of Her Mother? Even...
When The Children Fall Sick, She Has To Consult Her Mother For Her Advice On Which Hospital The Children Should Be Taken. Furthermore, It’s The Man Who Is Footing All The Bills.
So what? She is close to her mom. Most women are like that. Mine calls her mother for advice about everything. If it gives her a sense of security to seek her mother's consent, let her do it. You don't have to let her mother influence your own decisions. You just have to take charge sometimes, regardless of what her mother says, and explain to your wife why you think you should go against what her mother says. Just make sure you don't belittle or undermine her mother when you do so.
I know that in some societies, the wife goes and lives in the husband's area, and gets advice from his mother and sisters. However, the extended family system that existed in England before WWII, (Rowntree, Study of Bethnal Green) was matriarchal, a couple got married and lived in the wife's area where she had her mother and sisters for support, we all know that, often, mothers-in-law, from whichever side, are often not supportive of the marriage, but that's a different story, and I must get off of it:-) After the war and all the major development throughout Europe, extended families were split up and we entered a phase of nuclear families. The war is now, what. 65 years gone and we are starting to see a return to matriarchal extended family systems, women are so much better at holding families together, so this has to be a good thing. Good luck to that wife for getting advice from her mother, but she should also aim to become independent, her mother, generally, will die before her, and also she will need to be a strong mother, for her daughters,
give her back to her mother, all three of you will probably be happier
