How Do I Deal With My Mother-in-Law?

"My Husband and I Have Never Lived Together"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

What do you do when you and your husband don't live in the same home? We've been together a total of 19 years and married for four. We've talked about living together, but he has his mother and 22-year-old son living with him and I have my 22-year-old son (who is away at college) with me. I am tired of living in separate homes and so is my husband, but he doesn't actually do anything about it. I've been patient, but I cannot take it anymore! I love him and he loves me as well. My mother-in-law thinks my husband is her husband and we don't get along. I also recently lost my job, so money has put a strain on our marriage. What must I do to let him know that it's them or me?
