How do I get my overbearing MIL off of hub's and my joint back account? I have posted a few times about the probs we have with this. I finally said something to him last night when MIL made a rude comment to me to "stop buying clothes for the girls" when a.) I NEVER buy anything out of fun b.) he spends the $$ foolishly and she thinks that's just a-ok, so it's fair to buy mcdonalds every other day rather than come home for lunch and spend $ at the bar but it's NOT ok to buy needs for our kids & c.) the kids are always in handmedowns so HOW! can she say that comment? He says he doesn't want to remove her bc she "helps out" & he feels better. But we haven't saved a dime & all she does is meddle. I can't open a separate acct because then I'd have to go to the army & have his direct deposit changed. This is really killing me & he just doesn't see it or doesn't care.

First of all if he is the one in the army. He has to change his Direct deposit to a different account, not you. So if he does not want to, he will not do it. You can have a separate account opened and have some of your money sent directly there from the other account(Like a savings account). So MIL will never see what you all are doing with it.
