I can understand wanting to communicate with your mother from time to time. Maybe your wife feels you communicate with her to much. Some of the things you are talking to your mother about, should you be talking to your wife about instead?
I always stand up to my wife. Sometimes she admits she is wrong and sometimes she freaks out and we get into a big fight. I don't let her just have her way, I assure you of that. That is kind of how all of this started, because I put my foot down.
I asked that because you shortened the amount of time you were going to stay and visit with family. What you should maybe do is tell her that you both can drive up there to your family's house and if she wants to leave a day early then that is fine, and you will catch the train when you originally scheduled to leave.
You have to make yourself happy and if she doesn't see that being with your family makes you happy, then you need to do what makes you happy.
She may get angry and upset, but that is her issue to work through, and she knew you were close to your family before you got married. That doesn't magically change the night of the wedding.
