    @MrsPanda99:  I think you need another option- marry a man with a healthy relationship and solid boundaries with his mother. Either of the extremes listed could be problematic!

    No, I don’t think I could stand it. My husband’s brother is a mama’s boy and she always knows wayy to many details about his life. He calls her about everything – I would be so annoyed if I were his wife!

    what mamadingdong said. I love that my FI is kind and sweet enough to keep in contact with his mother, and keep her involved in our lives. However, he is not a “mama’s boy” in the sense that he has EVER thrown her words at me, nor does he go to her first for an opinion. I am his new #1 woman, but he still loves his mother to death. I would hate it if he didn’t have a relationship with her. I think both options in the poll are far too extreme choices, there’s no option for those in that lovely in between lol.

    @MrsPanda99:    I find the notion pretty immature, to be honest… I mean the word “boy” is in the title so there’s your first clue.  Grown men don’t need to call their mom all the time or consult with them on everything.  The few guys I’ve known who fit that description were absolutely immature.  

    DH is close with his mom but definitely not a mama’s boy.

    My xDH was a mama’s boy. She was always all up in our business. He told her everything. Nothing about or in our marriage wasn’t private. 

     

    FI has a great relationshipo with his mom…but he’s not a mama’s boy. And she’s not all up in our business.

    I have a similar sitch to lots of bees I think, FI LOVES his mum, but thank GOD he doesn;t call her about everything! That would drive me NUTS. I would have to go with a man who never talks to his mother, than a boy who is more like his mothers puppet than your FI!

    Everyone wants the safe option 😉

    DH considers himself to be a mama’s boy… in that he’s much closer to his mom than his dad, and she’s one of his favorite people in the world.  That being said, they have a healthy relationship with reasonable boundaries.  This is what I think of when I think “mama’s boy”.  I’m happy to be married to one.

    I think what you mean by “mama’s boy” is better described by “crazy guy who’s unhealthily close to his mom and wishes that umbilical cord had never ever ever been cut and might still want to breast feed”.  I like to stay as far away from crazy as possible, especially that kind.

    Both are horrible options but in my experience if a man treats his Mum like shit then you can guarantee you are next. So I guess I begrudgingly choose mamas boy.

    I dated a mama’s boy for the years. Never. Again.

    DH barely speaks to his mother now so it’s not quite as extreme as the option in the poll but I would definitely choose someone who doesn’t speak to his mother over a mama’s boy.

    My ex FI was a mamma’s boy.  Hence the ex.
