How To Cope With A Mama’s Boy In A Relationship Or Marriage

This is an issue that needs to be attended to. The word “Mama’s boy” may sound hilarious but is actually the true word to use.

A “Mama’s boy” is a full grown man, married or not that is still heavily controlled by his mother on how to run his life (marriage,finance etc).

A mother can show love by giving her son some advices but when she begins to get controlling, there is a need for caution.

Some wives are fixed in the middle of loving their husband and coping with the mother-in -law too. A lot of women are going through this emotional trauma but refuses to take the right steps.

One thing you need to understand is that ,the mother has been able to set some standards for him and he follows it. Let me ask you, what standards have you set for yourself in your marriage?. Either in a relationship or marriage, your man should be able to stand his ground to things you won’t be happy with. Does his mother have to interfere with everything you do? No way!

Tell your man what you don’t like and set the rules but hey wait there!, no disrespecting her. If she is acting in good faith, you need to respect her wish there but if she is always interfering and making you feel inferior in the relationship or marriage, then you must stand your grounds and let your man know.

In marriage, the bible says, a man and a woman shall leave their father’s house and cleave to themselves as one. Nobody can put them asunder including the mother and siblings.

No messing around here, a man has two women in his life, the mother and the wife and there is a portion of space you give to them including their respect.

Wives, if you are going through this kind of situation of your mother-in-law always intruding in a selfish way, then you need to talk to your husband to act like a man.

If he never proves to be a man, then let him pick between you and his mother. If he truly loves you and his family, he will take the right decision.

I read a story on how a woman endured with her husband always being controlled by his mother for 10years and she kept it to herself until she was forced to share the story. Please don’t get me wrong, a mother shows love but try and understand the interference am saying here. Some mothers attitudes are excesses.

Its for the best. Take the right decisions.

Be Wise! Be Real!! Be You!!!
