My boyfriends mum is ruining our relationship watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    My boyfriend is a mummy's boy, we have been together for 3 years but recently it has become too much to bare and is causing massive problems.
    She texts and calls him all the time and refers to him as her 'lovely little boy' he is 21. Recently she told me she feels like he is still a little boy but in an adults body and he needs to be looked after and cared for by her. I love him and want a future with him but she is pushing me out and I'm fed up of feeling second best. I asked him to talk to her about it because I have had enough, so now his step dad has said I can only stay over once or twice a week incase I start upsetting my boyfriend and they think I am jealous of his mother. Has anybody else been or going through the same horrible battle?

    No but in all seriousness, that sucks. It's great when someone has a good relationship with their family, but that's pushing it. :/ People need to learn to become independent. Extended youth has its pros and cons I suppose. >.> #thisgeneration

    have you slept with this person? Maybe you should try and get him to move out

    That's her son. If you ask any guy to choose, most likely he will choose his mother over you. You're being really rude in my opinion. Just because your own parents aren't affectionate, doesn't mean that other people don't have affectionate parents. 21 is still very young and it is perfectly normal for a mother to be like that. If you were the right woman for him, you would WANT him to be close to his mother, rather than wanting him to distance himself from her.
