@OneOfTheseDaysAlice:  why couldn’t they just accept a “NO”.  it’s crazy when parents get so bent out of shape about meaningless stuff.  my mother and dh’s mother can be the same way sometimes.  they are slowly learning ‘acceptance’.

Wow, they are so overbearing! I am sorry for you. Really glad that SO stood his ground. Sounds like his brother knows whats up, too. Maybe they should get a dog or something to redirect their inappropriate amount of attention toward.

I can’t even understand why she would want him to come to her house when everyone is supposed to be sleeping, and why his father would be mad at anyone for anything other than at your SO’s mom for waking him up! WTF is wrong with those people?? Good thing he stood up to them, because that is just ridiculous. 

And usually saying someone is in big trouble means there will be punishment inflicted. How can they punish their adult son who does not depend on or live with them??? Not speaking to him or letting him come over, not doing his laundry? If so, he should get in trouble more often =P

@OneOfTheseDaysAlice:  Your SO’s mom sounds like a troll.  ):  I’m glad your SO stood up to her, though!  Eventually they’ll realize where the boundaries are, just make sure your SO keeps up the good work of not backing down!

@OneOfTheseDaysAlice:  “That makes absolutely no sense though, because if I did have him whipped, the first thing to go would be his free will….haha” EXACTLY. cue the crazy music– you’ve got a CRAZY on your hands, and the only cure is….more cowbell? maybe another few dogs she can mother?

Congrats! Your SO stood up to her/them. Wooooo!

Now the bad news- if parents are used to submissive children, it can be a real shocker to them when they are stood up to.  That means that they can fight against the independence and ‘free will’ even harder.  When my Fiance started standing up to his parents, it came to them threatening to disown him and, on a separate occasion, threatening to not attend the wedding.

This may just be the beginning but trust me when I say that it is so worth it in the end.  My FI’s parents still try to treat him like a child from time to time and he still has to stand up to them, even though the biggest of the battles have come and gone. 

Good luck!
