I told her I don't care what my mother thinks and neither should she. Some background, my mother is insane, I moved out of her house at 24 by grabbing as much of my stuff as I could in one go because she was a narcissistic abuser who loved to keep me beat down. She threatened to have me arrested if I didn't return. I had done nothingvwrong, of corse so i told jer to shove it. I only see her because my wife insists I try to have a relationship. My wife is very upset by this recent revelation, but I honestly couldn't care less about my mother's feelings but I hate seeing my wife upset. How do I help her?

I don't want to close the accounts and see no reason to do so. We own a home and vehicles so I'm not worried about the potential credit drop. Losing the buying power is what scares me. Are there any reasons I should consider consider consolidating our cards? Any reason I should not? Saying to keep a card in case we split is not helpful. I know that already.

    Long stort: 5 years ago my mother's husband (not my father) was an alcoholic, abusive man. She was about to serve him divorce paper and then he was in a motorcycle accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Sher felt guilty about leaving him so she stayed and helped him recover. Everything changed. He found Jesus, stopped drinking and stopped hitting her. It was amazing. Problem is, his brain only functions on the level of a 12 year old at best so he is incapable of leading a life without help on my mother was okay with staying with him. Now, some bad influences are making their way back into his life. He was resumed drinking and while the violence hasn't come back(yet) he does threaten her if he doesn't get his way. She wants to resume the divorce proceedings but she is affraid the judge will deny spousal support (she has a job but it doesn't pay well so they rely on his company's long term dissabillity check) because he cannot live on his own. Is there anything she can do?

Come Jan 1 2018, is the bank going to require us to pay back taxes on the home value as of 1/1/17(roughly $6000) or will the mortgage just increase by $500/mo? We are prepared for the worst case scenario, but this is our first home and are curious. Thanks
