- Wedding: December 2014
At the moment my parents are upset and cranky at me because I told them that I want to move in with my SO at the end of the year. It doesn’t help either because SO is in the process of buying a ring, and we hope to get married at the end of last year.
I work and have savings and am able to move out of home no problem, but my mother is very angry at me because I spend 2-3 nights a week with SO when she says I could be “spending family time before I leave her for good”. I know that as an adult I am able to leave and that I can look after myself fine, but I know that when I move she will go ballistic. She has terrible OCD and anxiety, if I spend one night with SO and come home she is upset that she wasn’y included in our plans and worries that I “hate her”.
I have made a huge effort to spend more time with her but it has not helped the situation one bit. I know when I leave it’ll be for the better for both me and SO, but my mum is so darn clingy! She knows we want to marry next year, and says that if I wait until 2016 she will pay for half. I cannot spend another 2 years at home just to keep her happy. Anyone else have any issues because of their parents when they left/wanted to leave home?
