FML - The follow-up
Dobche Say more :
OP here: Result - negative. Why I didn't know about the cooking issue - well, it wasn't an issue for the last 4 years when we lived abroad. It seems it is a recent skill loss, like since we came back 3 months ago and found a place to live near his parents.

aye. Guy can't feed himself? Not great, but can be remedied. Guy has Crazy mother willing to get OP fired? AND guy defends the mother and expects OP to apologise? Personally I'd recommend OP leave him, unless he is will to see that what the mother did was wrong. otherwise shit like this will happen all the time.

Not being able to cook fancy meals or having a few meals you can cook rather than a massive repertoire is fine. Not for everyone, but it works. Not being able to feed yourself at all? NOT okay.

personally my issue isn't that he can't cook... it's that he treated OP like they were in the wrong. I'm not making a committment to someone who will not stand up for me when his mother is clearly in the wrong. trying to get someone fired so they will stay at home and feed your son is out of order. instead OP just got into trouble for upsetting her?

I don't think people are saying to break up because he can't cook as much as the fact that he seems to think it is okay to expect his partner to quit her job so she can cook for him, and that it was ok for his mother to meddle in such a way as to imply OP took drugs to make her quit her job.

I never said that OP should break up with him I was saying that I personally wouldn't put up with that. At 35 OPs fiancee is a grown ass man. Who should know how to take care of himself and be an adult. my boyfriend at 34 is miles ahead of this loser

Shit, the lazy fuck can't even microwave something for himself, so he goes and complains to mommy about it. I can only imagine what would happen if OP didn't feel like hang sex one night. "Mommy! She won't touch my peepee! wahhh" She's dating a manchild bro, and if you're okay with those kind of people, have fun with a girl (or guy) who acts like a baby all the time.

He seems to think his mother did nothing wrong trying to get his fiancée fired or make her quit, plus seems to think she's wrong for presumably bringing it up with his mother. All over the fact that he is unwilling or unable to make a basic meal or wait until a time that his fiancée can make a meal. Asking why she's dating him seems fairly reasonable.

@101 I find it odd that you don't think it's okay to judge Op's boyfriend but you think it's okay to judge Op (by not 'condoing' her actions). Op did nothing wrong, yet you're acting like she's the one at fault.

He's probably been in the same boat as OP'S fiancé. And the down votes are here to warn everyone that you're either an asshat, or a dumbass before reading the shit you deem appropriate to spew on this site.

#133, not really. I've been on this site since 2009-ish. I've seen more than 10 occasions where someone was downvoted because the intelligent masses (rotflcoptering) on fml don't get his/her pop culture references or something like that. Who cares about downvotes tho, seriously.

148, no one here is saying they should break up simply because he cannot cook. That's not the issue. I can't cook either, really. The issue is that OP's fiancé is siding with his mother who just attempted to get OP fired from her job, simply because OP's fiancé is too lazy to pop food into the oven/microwave or wait for his fiancée to come home to cook. He is acting entitled by not realizing what his mother did was wrong and worthy of a reprimand (HE should have been the one to do it in the fir

I am going to end this huge reply chain debacle with some words of wisdom. to the guy getting down voted to oblivion, everyone is expressing their own opinion on this fml. That is what this websites for. To those white knighting and down voting this guy to oblivion, i greatly hope you are down voting because you disagree and not because this comment is posted by a female. That being said, I hope the op can have the courage to confront his boyfriend on his transgressions and form a solution, ins

#170, are you slow? About half the user base of this site is female, why the fuck would a females comment be downvoted just because she's female? Sounds like you have some issues you're trying to pass onto everyone else.

#170 I made a simple mistake of writing the OP when I wanted to write 'OP's fiance' I stand by every fucking thing I said tho. I don't get my people are scared of getting downvoted, do they really care that much about pleasing people other than saying what they want/expressing their opinion?

Eggs, I don't know. But I'm pretty damn incompetent in the kitchen and even I know how to dump a can of soup in a pot or put together some mac n' cheese and chop a few veggies for a salad. If OP's (soon to be ex?) fiancé can't manage that, he really does need to move back to where his mommy can give him a nice, warm bottle for dinner.

But but... There was a raid going on! I'm seriousness though, he needs to learn to take care of himself. God forbid something happen to his mother and/or fiancée; how would he survive? He may not be able to cook well, but he's got to start at some point.

Run far far away as fast as you can? Seriously, OP, you don't want that kind of crazy. Besides which, he's 35--if he's not responsible enough to take care of himself, he's sure as hell not responsible enough to get married.

If she thinks her 35 year old "baby" can't support himself to the extent where she tried to get you fired, she should probably be the one evaluated for drugs. And your fiancé should too, for refusing to stand up for you.
