Oh and to top it all off, she is now trying to convince him to move 3 hours away to go to college on campus. He's honestly considering it. He knows it will completely screw up our relationship and the future of his kids because right now we are relying on his tiny extra income from him doing odd jobs like mowing peoples lawn just to pay bills. How can I convince him to stop listening to this horrid woman who seems to be trying to destroy us?

Ask him why he bothered to start a future and family with you if he wasn't ready to leave home ( his mom ) . It will make him a little angry to begin with but tell him the kids are the priority here that the two of you CHOSE to be together and no one else did. Ask him to name the positive things that he knows of that his mom has done for your/his family , then list the things that you know she has done to tear it apart

I'm afraid I'd tell them both exactly what you just said, tell them you're not putting up with this shit anymore and in all honesty you'd be a lot better off without the two of them bleeding you dry.
He needs to step up and be a responsible father, get a steady job and pay his share. Quit being a mommy's boy, and if her advice about saving money is that great, why is she relying on handouts from you?
