Today, I proposed to my girlfriend. She said she wanted to accept, but that she'd basically have to get her mom's permission first. Apparently the answer was no. The worst thing is that she really is this unhealthily dependent on her mom, and probably wasn't lying about needing her permission. FML

If she really feels that she needs permission, she probably isn't ready for marriage. There's a point when you just have to move on. You can't be in a relationship with someone who still wants to be their parents' baby.

In my family it is customary to ask the father for permission before proposing. My fiancé did it, and my father said yes. I have rarely ever heard a father saying no. If the father is out of the picture here, maybe OPs girlfriend wanted the boyfriend to ask her mom to follow traditions. However, if she was always dependent on the mom like this then it is weird

I feel sorry for OP's girlfriend, sounds like some odd psychological dependence and I'd hate to live like that. Hopefully you can coax her independence, because it sounds like you must really love her. Best of luck to you both, OP :)

I think you dodged a bullet there OP. Marry her and you'll be marrying her mother as well. She'd probably move in with you. Find someone with a little more backbone.
