Wow. Im so sorry, that’s horribly inappropriate. I dont even know what I would do if my mother said that. I understand some of your frustration though. After 5+ years of being with my SO, my mom still says “You need to really pray about who God wants you to marry. You need to make a list of all the things you want in a guy… I don’t mean all the things that SO has- and pray that God will send that man to you.” I’m like.. Seriously? You think after all this time I’m still questioning him, and would actually make a list of stuff I want in a guy and hope he will come so I can be with him instead of SO?? 

It doesn’t even make sense because my mom really likes him. I guess they just want what’s best for us, but they dont realize how awful theyre being in the process. Sigh. My mom also has concerns about money. She’s always wanted me to marry a rich man. Don’t get me wrong that would be great, but I love and believe in the man I already have!!

I hope that you two will make up and your mom will be more accepting, very soon.

Sounds like I might have a 21 year old sister I didn’t know about til now! I don’t really have much advice, just to say that you have to learn that that’s how she is and not to let it get to you. My mom is the same way. I was showing her wedding venues and at the same time she was talking to me about some guy in another state that she had heard about that I should meet. True story. *hugs* Sorry. :/
