Yeah sure #12, but I'd think "my mum's dead" isn't one of those trivial things you'd forget (when paying attention)...

He doesn't sound like he should be in a relationship.. That's one of those things you cannot justify forgetting.

I have sever short term memory loss to the point where I forget fairly important things. I keep notes of things I need to do and remember around the house for when I forget not if. While I really don't think I would forget something that big perhaps this is what is wrong with the boyfriend instead of inattentiveness? I would think he would of warned her though.

You have never met her and you cannot speak for her. Frankly it is very rude of you to even try. For all we know OP's mom would say, "He is very sweet, he just forgot this one thing." or "Give him one more chance, if he screws up leave him." or hell, "Chicken livers." We don't know and shouldn't assume.

58, just wondering, was chicken livers the first thing that came to your mind or did you put some thought into it?

You would think he'd remember something like that! I'm sorry OP. Maybe you should ask him to dig deep into his memory and maybe he'll recall what you told him 14 days ago.

If he can't be bothered to remember something as life changing and heartbreaking as your mother's death, then you need to reconsider your relationship. RIP, OP's mom.

Not the sharpest tool in the shed you're dating. Perhaps you should bring him to her grave for his formal meeting. Smfh. He clearly doesn't listen to you.

@10, this is my favorite comment on here; great idea since he wants to "meet" her mom, she should definitely take him graveside to get it through to him. Assuming OP is okay with that, which if it were me, I would be, because sometimes just knowing your loved one's parent has passed on isn't enough, but sharing the experience of memorializing them by visiting the grave can be a emotionally and spiritually connecting event.
