Ladies, but there are places that mom belongs and doesn’t belong. So we need to learn that one of those places is in our relationships. We have to find the line when letting mom in can make a guy want to go.
My friend is very close to her mom and they talk about everything, including her relationship. Lately my friend and her boyfriend have been having some communication problems, which have turned into arguments. So with her mom knowing this she has taken it upon herself to talk to the boyfriend in order to resolve the problems; which has caused more problems.
I told her that while letting mom know about one’s life is okay, there are limits. A mom is naturally going to take their child’s side in any situation and want to fix things. So there has to be some line between talking to mom and her getting involved.
Mom’s are great for talking to and confiding in, but as we get older they can’t fix everything. We have to be able to handle things ourselves, including our relationships. So if a couple consist of two people then the third has to go.
