I’m going to be blunt about this, and mostly because this is one of the things I cannot stand in a man – tell him it’s time to cut the cord!!!!

You are 100% right. It is not okay for him to be acting this way and taking her side over yours in all of these situations! You two will be your own family soon and that should come first. I would just have a serious talk with him alone and tell him how it needs to be for the relationship to be successful. I would have a COW if my husband suggested moving his parents in with us. There is no way I would even consider it, so you already have more patience than me! Good luck girl!

Your marrying a Momma’s boy.  I would have a serious talk w/ him to see if he’s saying those things just to make his Mom feel better or does he really mean it.  If his mother has always relied on him(Her Knight in Shing Armour), its going to be difficult for her to let go. 

She sounds like a Drama Queen and you’re stepping on her territory.  I would start looking for places for you both to move in before the wedding and tell him your plan.  You can always live locally to assist her but you have to have your own space.

I would make sure he understands you are not moving in with his mom no matter how big the house is before you get married.

I know how you feel and I agree with you!  It is time for him to let go,  There is a time in a man’s life where he has to stop constantly worrying about his mom and start worrying about the family he is starting with his wife.  That is just my opinion.

I think he should be you a house before he buys his mom a house. It’s fine that he’s living with her now… but the whole situation you described it a little overdone IMO. I think you should talk to him and say, this is what I want to happen if we’re going to get married. Each parent has to be taken care of equally, so if I have a concern with my mom, then I should be able to help her. And if you buy your mom a house, maybe my mom should get one too 🙂
