Perhaps you should wait to get married until you can afford your own small apartment. I can see why she doesn't want to live with your mother though, In many cultures, the son's wife , when they live with his family, is expected to be nothing more than the servant of his mother and sisters, with the husband expected to beat her whenever she disobeys an order. Do you really want to have to choose between yourwife and mother in silly matters of why your wife didn't do the dishes while everybody else was still eating, or why she used the phone without asking permission. I think in cultures like that, its safer for women if the couple live with HER parents. wait a few more months, save up and rent or buy a small apartment or house so you can start marriage as equals, not master and servant
