@Creiddylad:  I get that you want to be out of the turmoil, but you must set boundaries for your mother. There has to be consequences for her when she “crosses the line,” otherwise, she’s going to do it forever.

Ah I’m so afraid of this happening with our moms. They treat each other like frenemies and it can be a little scary, not to mention stressful for the both of us.

This sucks. But honestly I think your Mom is more in the wrong then anyone. I would suggest both of you speaking to your parents separtely tell your mother that she doesn’t have to like so or his family but she has to be respectfuly and vice versa

“ETA: I should add that I have very calmly and seriously told my parents that I make my own choices and they cannot and should not meddle in my relationship.”


Bravo for you writing this. I can here to say that it isn’t their business who you choose and they need to suck up their differences and be happy for you.


As for the driveway fiasco? They’re behaving like children. They need to get over it and act their ages.

What struck me about all of this is that his mom is probably a good deal older than your mom. As women get older, they worry more. My grandmother would definitely have done that!!
