Dear Steve and Shirley,
I’m engaged to a man that is a serious momma’s boy.
It’s beyond being a momma’s boy! He jokes about her thinking he is her man and I repeatedly tell him it’s not funny. I feel that she is jealous of the attention he gives me. Anything I say I want to do for him, she has to piggy back and try to do it too. If he tells me I look nice, she gives me a sad look and he has to compliment her more. She has several men, fools around with married men, and talks so negatively about marriage I believe she is hoping he will change his mind about marrying me. She makes decent money, but she always has her hand out for him to buy her things or pay for things. I recently told him it’s okay to help his mom, but we are building a home and trying to have a baby, so he needs to set some limits with his mom. I love him with all my heart but I think his mom will cause major problems in our relationship. How can I get through to him about his mom?
What should I do? Please help.
