Sounds like shes (legitimately) having a hard time with her son being so far away. Give her a break.

I would talk to your Darling Husband about the situation.  He needs to let her know that you won’t be moving but you will see her when you visit.  She misses him, can’t blame her for that, but I admit that hearing that day after day definitely wears thin. I really feel like opening the lines of communication between all three of you would really help the situation.  Your Darling Husband is your partner so I feel like you should discuss this him.  Having him discuss or plan out your visits more with your Mother-In-Law may help too.  Maybe even making a point to talk with her (even for only 5 minutes), may help the situation.  Best of luck!

She needs to learn to let her son go and be the leader of his own family.  I hate how I see some parents putting themselves/their feelings/insecurities before their child’s happiness.  If I was the mother, even if I am lonely and sad, I would not put that burden on my son who is married and far away.  You two sholdn’t live your lives this way.  Mother-In-Law is being really selfish.
