    My SO and my mom get along really well. He sees her like a mom and she loves him! SO’s mom and I had a little rough patch last year but she loves me now and I’m excited that we’ll all be a family within the next few years 🙂

    Since my parents divorced, my once mommas boy brother completely cut ties with my Mom and I – which was completely heartbreaking. But, my Mom has considered my Darling Husband her son since day one of our relationship. To give you an idea of how much my Mom likes him, she let him use her diamond from her wedding band in my engagement ring as a surprise to me (LOVE my heirloom diamond and I remember always staring at her big ole rock as a child).  Talk about being on Moms good side!

    My parents have basically adopted Fiance as their son. They love him (sometimes more than me I think haha!) Since my FI’s mother passed away when he was in high school my mom has definitely taken it as her personal duty to “take over” that role. Oddly enough, his mother and my mother share the last same 4 digits of their social. Weird! My mom also takes that as a sign that she is his mom #2.

    Very early in Fiance and my relationship I broke up with him because I wasn’t sure I was ready to be in a serious relationship because we had both just gotten out of relationships. My mom called Fiance up and told him I was making a mistake! Lol! I didn’t know about this until after, so I guess she was right! I only lasted a (painful) month without him.

    I can’t really vote…they don’t “love” each other but they get along perfectly well. They can talk between themselves if I’m not around and we all have a good time together but it’s not like “oh yay you’re mom’s coming over!!” lol I’m not like that with my SO’s parents either…it’s kind of like “ugh” when her mom comes over even though I get along perfectly well with her mom too. Not sure why it feels like that lol

    My mom and I are like oil and water. My SO is very similar in temperment to me.

    He and my mom basically have an uneasy truce. He’s polite to her becasue she’s my mom but he really doesn’t like her. I don’t think she really likes him either to be honest but knows enough to keep her mouth shut and be polite.

    I don’t care. I’m used to her shit and they’re both stuck with each other 🙂

    I voted that my mom loves him but he can’t stand her. Though that’s not entirely accurate. My mom does treat my husband like the son she never had, and although she can rreally get on his nerves and he’s not used to her parenting style sometimes, he does love her and he recognizes how wonderful she is to him. I would say that my husband is pretty much totally comfortable around my mom now.

    Darling Husband and my mom get along great!  Heck – he is even the one who came up with the idea to invite them to do a cruise vacation with us!

    I get along really well with my Mother-In-Law too!

    My mom loves my Fiance. I’m her only child so I think she likes to feel like she also has a son, lol. Its super cute.

    They get along just fine. They’ve certainly never argued or anything; they just have different approaches to life, I guess. I put that they “love” each other, but I don’t know if that’s how they’d describe it.

    @laughs:  My Boyfriend or Best Friend has met my mother once in 2+ years, and yes, that is intentional. As many of you know, my mother is a little imbalanced and terrifying. 

    Let me give you an example of what my mother thought was appropriate conversation when they first met and when we had only been dating 2 months:

    Mom: So, were you nervous to meet me?

    Boyfriend or Best Friend: No, ma’am.

    Mom:…excuse me? Would you care to rephrase that?

    Boyfriend or Best Friend: …do I need to speak up?

    Mom: (pissed) Well, you should be. I’m her mother, after all.  You’ll understand when the two of YOU have kids.


    End scene.  She also always asks for his phone number, and when I ask why, she says “I just want to chat with my son-in-law.” When I remind her he’s not her son-in-law, she responds “that’s exactly what I’d like to talk about.”

    My Mother is very difficult at times and he puts up with her like a champ. She loves him, and he loves her. But if I were him, I don’t know if I would love her. LOL So yeah, my husband is a friggin’ saint.
