I think you should stop talking to your mom when she makes demands of you.

Just walk away when she demands to know your plans, or demands that your fiance helps around the house (wtf? My fiance helps but my mom doesn’t EXPECT him to!)

We moved into FMIL’s house recently, and I totally understand the regret you’re feeling. We’re just going to stick it out because YEAH the money savings is worth it. But I am slowly learning how to draw lines and boundries. Whether she respects them is another thing, but there is power in deciding your own reactions to things.

It’s only a few months, so try to hang on tight.
Maybe try to look at it as an opportunity to work on your communication skills with difficult people.

@jeg14:  

I dealt with an awful mother by moving out. I had to move back home and she was too hard to live with…I was gone within a year.

Parents never stop being parents, even when their kids are grown up. 

Is there any way you can live on your own again?
