It hurts to read a message from his wife about his mother-in-law

My mother is 76 years old, hard working, not afraid of work even though her health is weak.

Since my father’s death, my mother went to the city to help me and my wife take care of our grandchildren, and it took 10 years to pass. Although we are not very successful, we are all capable of taking care of our mother’s comfortable life. In the mother’s mind, she still has strength, and if she can work, she will help her children and grandchildren. On normal days, the couple went to work, and at night, their mother would take care of the food and clean the house. During the time of social distancing, the children did not go to school, thanks to my mother, my wife and I did not have to worry. However, I accidentally read a text message from my wife to her relatives, which contained a sentence that made me extremely sad: “My whole heart is angry, I look so good at work, I am crazy at home serving but my head is crazy. horrible idleness, lying down waiting to be served. Yet his mother and son kept calling her happy. Tomorrow, she won’t cook at all, let him and his children do it themselves. Hate her bitterly.”

I find cooking at home for 5 people not a lot of work. I also help clean the house, clean the house; One day, I thought my wife was tired, so I asked my mother to cook, but it turned out that my wife was jealous and divided the work. While my mother thought there was nothing to do, she could cook by herself. I did not dare to talk about this with anyone, afraid that they would laugh, fear that my brothers and sisters would know that they would definitely not allow my mother to stay with me and my wife. My mother in the countryside also has a decent house, she will go back to her hometown and be very sad. So many thoughts in my head without any answers. My wife only sees my mother as an unpaid maid? Why don’t the wife’s relatives give advice when they hear this? My mother is healthy and her wife has treated me like that, how will the old and weak woman live with her daughter-in-law in the future? Hope you guys can give me some advice, now I don’t know what to do? Sincere thanks.
